Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

By Fritz Hahn

DJ Will Eastman's calendar already includes a Friday night residency at Metropolitain, the champagne bar underneath Adams Morgan's Napoleon bistro, and the long-running Bliss indie/electro monthly at the Black Cat, but we're always glad when he can squeeze one of his Blisspop parties onto the 9:30 club's schedule. Mixing live music, guest DJs and surprises into a bigger-than-life variety show, his events are always an interesting way to spend an evening. Saturday's edition is the heaviest one yet: It's headlined by Tittsworth, the accomplished turntablist whose blend of Baltimore Club, hip-hop, '80s mashups and remixes drops jaws as well as booties. This is your last chance to catch Tittsworth on home ground for a while -- his upcoming tour includes stops in Canada, Thailand and China before four days in Australia with Kanye West, Thievery Corporation, A-Trak and Pharoahe Monch. (Need convincing? Download a recent mix from Tittsworth here.) Also on the bill are Minneapolis disco-funk throwback band Codebreaker, whose songs Eastman remixed in 2007 (grab those tracks from the blog Pound for Pound) and the always energetic and hook-filled local indie rockers Metropolitan. Tickets for the all-ages show are $10.

This is just one of the events in this week's Nightlife Agenda column, which also includes an all-star tribute to Prince, Elvis's birthday party, atmospheric Brit-rock -- by a local band -- and ways to keep your New Year's resolution to get out and dance more.

I don't understand this post; where and when is Eastman playing? Black Cat or Metropolitan? Is Metropolitan a venue AND an indie band? Too confusing.
