For the 18th time, Boston scene veteran Shaun Wolf Wortis presents a New Orleans-funk-soul-R&B-based Bastille Day party. New Orleans and the French Revolution? Funky R&B and France's national holiday? Sure, why not? Over the years, it's become a welcome tradition in Boston's clubland, and this year should be yet another joyous festival of drinking, dancing and partying. In a new twist, this time the show will be a vaudeville-style nonstop revue, with six continuous 40-minute sets performed by some of Boston's best club acts-- four hours of uptempo R&B, until presumably the guillotine falls.

The Napoleon-costumed Wortis and his Vudu Krewe Revue All-Star Mardi Gras Band will be hosting and setting the funky atmosphere. Joining them will be Jordan Valentine and the Sunday Saints, Jed Parrish, Holly Brewer, Ad Frank and Mick Mondo.

What kind of tunes are best for a Bastille Day bash? Wortis listed a few for the Phoenix a couple years ago. Get ready for Les Marseillaise and "We Got the Party Tonight," along with other funky Parisian/Cajun/Cantabridgian favorites.

The 18th Annual Bastille Day A-Go-Go: TT The Bears Place, Friday July 15. $10. 8:30.
