Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

By Fritz Hahn

One of the highlights of the Black Cat's calendar is Run For Cover, the annual event at which members of local bands form temporary supergroups to play brief sets of cover songs, all in the name of charity. (Proceeds from Saturday night's concert go to Fort Reno.) It's always fun to guess what will be performed based on the names of the bands, so let's take a quick stab at that. Abbatite for Destruction? We'll guess ABBA, perhaps in the style of Guns 'n Roses? Or vice versa? Not sure which one is better. Revelation 88? A grab bag of choice tunes from bands on the legendary hardcore label. (Fritz is very excited -- a little too excited -- about this one, seeing how he still owns original pressings of Gorilla Biscuits vinyl.) Serious Moonlight? The Thin White Duke, of course. American Psychos? Let's hope it's not just Phil Collins covers, but maybe instead songs from the soundtrack to the overrated movie based on the overrated book. Don't Fear the Reefer? This can't be a straight up Blue Oyster Cult cover band. Jimmy Cliff? Peter Tosh? Bob Marley? A combination? Jesus and the Lizard. Duh. Anyway, it's always a good time.

This is just one of the highlights of this week's Nightlife Agenda column, which also has details about concerts and parties surrounding the D.C. Caribbean Carnival, including soca kings and Elephant man, some off-kilter indie rock and the 10th anniversary party for Bar Nun's Movement open mike night.
