Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

By Fritz Hahn

Guitar Hero is one of our favorite video games because, well, who doesn't dream of covering Motley Crue's "Shout at the Devil" and Suicidal Tendencies' "Institutionalized" in front of screaming crowds and challenging friends to Van Halen-esque solo battles? Shredding in your living room is fun, of course, but you know what's better? Shredding in public. In a bar. On stage. Tonight, Wonderland's Evil Disco DJ night is (sort of) offering a chance for your six-string dreams to come true.

Before the weekly dose of Alice Cooper, Judas Priest and Twisted Sister gets the crowd pumping its devil-horned fists, Evil Disco's hosts are breaking out their Playstation for a Guitar Hero II Tournament. The action takes place from 7 to 9 upstairs on the ballroom's projection screen, so you better get there early if you want to reserve a spot. To add to the mayhem, the Philadelphia band the Loved Ones are stopping by after their Black Cat show for a late-night DJ slot. It's free, and it's gonna rawk.

This is just one of the events you'll find in this week's Nightlife Agenda column. From South African legend Hugh Masekela to cocktails with ballerinas at the Italian embassy, we have your weekend plans covered.

DC needs to develop it's own music culture. Residents should go out and see live music played by live musicians not a bunch of pretenders. I am not going to get my taxes done by someone who pretends.

It's a video game, not a faux-concert. If this were a Madden NFL video game event, nobody would complain and say "DC needs go out and support live football played by the Redskins."

I think this event is a GREAT idea and sounds like a good time.

I agree with founduboring and I'm a girl. Guitar Hero is so fun! What's wrong with a little fun?!

I love Guitar Hero, will this be a weekly event until the fad dies down?
