After Thanksgiving, millions of people weigh themselves and realize all the gravy-covered stuffing and turkey they hogged down has translated into a few pounds of all-American fat. The popular solution is to lug that lard-ass to the fridge and make a gravy-covered sandwich with leftovers. Here’s some advice: Don’t do that. Exercise. You need movement. You need to dance the turkey off, you turkey! You need Dancegiving. The electronic dance music festival began in Florida last year, and Philly’s housing the first satellite event this year. The headliner’s Wolfgang Gartner, who makes thunder-punching electro-house bangers. His 2011 debut, Weekend In America, thumps, which means live he’s gonna straight-crush. Porter Robinson, a 19-year-old from North Carolina, slams electro-house into reggaeton-inspired EDM subgenre moombahton to produce chaotic crescendo-junkie jams perfect for a full-body workout. Among the other four DJs performing is Philly’s Dubsef, so go early and dance late, fatty.

Fri., Nov. 25, 8pm. $40. With Wolfgang Gartner, Porter Robinson, David Solano, the Devil From Acalpulco, Michael Myers + Dubsef. Electric Factory, 421 N. Seventh St. 215.827.1332.
