The only electronic night i have ever been to is called Matter and it is held at the Blue Room on 18th street. I am not sure if it still exists, as i havent seen it listed for a while. The Djs played a lot of techno, including all the requisite hip german stuff, but whenever i went, there were 20 people there, and everything was being played at lounge volumes. it was a bit sad really, though the bar has a good beer selection.

24 Hour Access: 24 Hour Psycho
February 28, 2004 at 5:30 p.m. A first for the Hirshhorn---the Museum will open the Douglas Gordon exhibition for twenty-four consecutive hours. 24 Hour Psycho (1993), the artist's video installation that stretches the Hitchcock classic into a twenty-four-hour experience, is the inspiration for this all-night happening. Launch the leap year with this unique, drop-in event, which will also include music, gallery discussions, and a "Meet the Artist" interview with Douglas Gordon conducted by Hirshhorn Director of Art and Programs and Chief Curator Kerry Brougher on Sunday at 3 p.m. in the Ring Auditorium. "24 Hour Access: 24 Hour Psycho" is made possible through the generosity of Aaron and Barbara Levine. http://hirshhorn.si.edu The following music (presented by Signal 66) will be played:5:30 ˆ 7:00pm DJ Sandwich Man7:00 ˆ 8:00pm Band Chessie8:00 ˆ 8:30pm DJ Debut8:30 ˆ 9:15pm Band The Hipnotix9:15 ˆ 9:45pm DJ Beat Neat-o of Groove9:45 ˆ 10:30pm Band Rose10:30 ˆ 11:00pm DJ Neville Chamberlain11:00 ˆ 11:45pm Band The Phobes11:45 ˆ 12:15am DJ Neville Chamberlain12:15 ˆ 1:00am Band Sounds of Kaleidoscope1:00 ˆ 1:30am DJ Happy Family1:30 ˆ 2:15am Band Sons of Disobedience2:15 ˆ 2:45am DJ Neville Chamberlain (tentative)2:45 ˆ 3:30am Band Gully Jimson

Dizzee's supposedly coming back for a bigger tour in the summer, but I'm not sure if he'll hit DC or not. I don't know of anything regarding Dear or Mayer, but if they came I imagine it would be at 5ive, unless it was a one-off somewhere else.

What's odd it that it seems to be only the EDM scene that really tries to escape the city - the most successful go-go and indie artists are, if anything, too tied to DC.
Is it odd that the most interesting and boosterish electronic dance DJ in DC over the last year has been Bob Mould?

The DC go-go artists have seemingly given up on being national and international acts (go-go hasn't crossed over) although Chuck Brown gets flown to Japan periodically to play.
Dischord indie rockers are always playing worldwide but such gigs just never get much local press here. Q and Not U are also booked to play that big fest coming up in California over the summer(Coachatella or something). Black Eyes toured Europe awhile back.

Why did they locate it in Georgetown? You can only make so much money from selling prog to white hats from GW. Better to be on U st with a big deep house section. They never seemed to have their shit together anyways. They cheated me out of $40 once but totally inadvertantly. I had my revenge during their clearance sale I guess.
As for Q and not U, I tried to see their last show at the Black Cat and ended up waiting in line for an hour by myself. As I was waiting, the show sold out. That is all. They need to play here more often.

I always wanted to check out the Grits & Gravy dj night at Bar Nun... Years ago I saw DC rappers Opus Okuben playing with a live band at the now defunct Metro Cafe. Wow, they were great. Now they just mostly play Europe, sometimes with Ny jazz guy Steve Coleman. They were at Black Cat around New Years Eve but I missed them.

DC 9 is in the original Asylum space, I'm not sure what it was between then and now. Half the music I've heard played there has been great indie/hip hop/disco, the other half has been too much midrange compressed guitar and singers that sound like they're in beer commercials. Which is a better hit rate than most places, but the DJs seriously can't mix or sequence their tracks.

Five is a great venue, nearly perfect, but the different promoters that do nights there only really book house, d+b, and reggae. There was the electroclash/breaks night there, too, but that's over and has turned into a retro night.
9:30 Club, as you mentioned, is a live music venue. They'll have the occasional DJ, but it always comes off as a bit out of place.
It costs a lot of money to run a club in DC due to the scarcity of suitable spaces. In a town with 8-foot ceilings in 95% of all buildings, there’s going to be a lot of competition for the remaining few with large open spaces. Permitting, safety codes, and accessibility standards are pretty tightly enforced, which means you have to sink a lot of money into a space before you can do anything with it. This goes for bars, dance clubs, live music clubs, and pretty much everything. And don't even get me started on ANC's and "voluntary agreements".

"After over 4 years in business, the owners of Now! Music and Fashion have decided to close permanently, so we can move on and pursue other opportunities. We've had a blast talking to you about music, putting on instore performances, and participating in the local community. But the best thing about running a record store has been the opportunity to meet you. Many thanks to our loyal customers and friends we've made along the way.

Alas, the ugly comments on a Popville story and a Washington Post review blame gogo for any trash left anywhere on U Street, for any atv and motorcycles that showed up, for any violence that has occurred in DC this year, and for not being “realistic “ and just accepting that luxury condo dwellers should get priority treatment.

Nothing to do with present-day DC; but I was interested to learn in this long WaPo article (from the Purple Mountains thread) that David Berman apparently lived at least part of his childhood in Reston, and also spent time with his dad in the District. I (partly) grew up in the Herndon/Reston area, and never heard of a cool rock figure from Reston before.
― get your hand outta my pocket universe (morrisp), Tuesday, 4 June 2019 16:48 (four months ago) link
Ah yes, the suburbia of Reston. It does have that town center with summer concerts, although most don’t interest me. They do seem to have a zydeco one every summer which is kinda cool. My son sometimes played baseball out there.
I think I had read Malitz talk about Berman’s Virginia & DC background before this long story ( that I haven’t read yet).

I saw a bit of the Royal Pocket Tour legendary gogo percussionists ( with a bass & keyboard in the back) thing at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. It was fun, then we went to AFI to see Punk the Capital. Some great 70s and early 80s footage of DC and bands . I liked it but can nitpick a few things. 1 of the directors was involved with the original Madam’s Organ yippie hippie hangout where DC punk bands played for part of a year. The movie focused on that but barely mentioned, if at all, Wilson Center, Georgetown Hall of Nations, DC Space. I did see on a tv in the hall after some outtakes showing that included Cramps at Hall of Nations.
