Boston Globe's Double Date: Mods & le pill

Luke O'Neil's "Double Date column in today's Boston Globe talks about the We Are The Mods screening and the pill's afterparty. Here's a taste:

Take a look online at some of the posters for the long-running Brit pop and indie dance night. Most are of mod girls in vintage 1960s dresses. The latest with a Vespa-draped girl looks like it might have been pulled right from Cassidy’s film. “The Pill has always been tied into mod culture,’’ says DJ Michael V. “Any girl worth her fashion sense will always look good in her little mod skirt.’’

“The music lately has veered more into modern sounds, but at any moment we can bust out the old stuff, the Kinks, the Zombies, the Creation.’’ Tonight they plan on focusing more on older mod, soul, and British classics, he says.
