Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

By Fritz Hahn

One of the biggest success stories of the last few years is the growth of Blowoff, the DJ night run by legendary guitarist Bob Mould (Husker Du, Sugar) and remixer/producer Richard Morel (New Order, the Pet Shop Boys). The duo's gone from a monthly gig spinning records in the cramped second floor of the Velvet Lounge to a regular spot in the cramped downstairs bar of the 9:30 club, and then on to a (mostly) monthly dance party on the 9:30's mainstage. No matter which venue they've called home, Blowoff has kept the party going, mixing indie, electro and full-bore dance remixes into eclectic, enjoyable sets. Last year, the duo released its first album, a synthesis of pop-rock hooks and beat-heavy electronica. Check them out at the 9:30 club Saturday night, where Mould and Morel are the featured event for the Mid-Atlantic Leather Festival. (That's why the 9:30 has gone to a 21-and-over age limit for the show.) Doors open at 9:30, and you'll dance until 4 a.m.

This is just one of the events featured in this week's Nightlife Agenda column. Whether you're looking for happy hours, DJ dance parties or live music, there are plenty of suggestions for the three-day weekend.
