Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week
Wrapping up a stellar week for DJ lovers is Wednesday's appearance by Kid Koala at Rock and Roll Hotel. This inventive Canadian DJ started out in the early '90s like many aspiring turntablists, making his name on the battle scene and through his intricately constructed mixtapes. His vision extended beyond the scratch and landed him a record deal with Ninja Tune. Releases such as "Carpal Tunnel Syndrome" and "Some of My Best Friends are DJs" displayed his ability to tell stories and convey humor through his turntable prowess. His innovative performance techniques landed him positions in bands such as Bullfrog and the Gorillaz. Opening for one of the few truly gifted turntablists who doesn't take himself too seriously is Wonderland's own DJ Meistro.
This week's Nightlife Agenda column also includes area appearances by hip-hop icons Roc Raida and Grandmaster Flash, a new Loudoun County darts tournament, free drinks at Lima and Velvets-esque rock on H Street.
