Breaking News: Five Deep-Sixed

By Fritz Hahn

Five, the troubled nightclub whose liquor license was suspended until June 18th because of violence inside the club, has had that suspension extended until further notice, according to the District's Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration.

Because of this, a number of scheduled events are changing venues, including two big DJ throwdowns featured in this week's Nightlife Agenda: Friday night's all-vinyl showdown between local legend Scott Henry and UK house-and-breakbeat master Lee Burridge, and Saturday's all-nighter featuring the Nouveau Riche DJs and special guests Miami Horror and Gameboy/Gamegirl.

"We're not sure what we're going to do yet," says Amanda Huie, the Vice President of Operations for Buzzlife. "But Lee [Burridge] is going to be in town no matter what," so they're trying to find a replacement space as quickly as possible. Anyone who purchased tickets for tomorrow's show or has questions about the to-be-announced venue can e-mail Huie at or check the Buzzlife Forums for further announcements.

Nouveau Riche, meanwhile, is taking the party across the street to MCCXXIII, where it will be ensconced in the posh Spank VIP level. (Happily, says DJ Gavin Holland, the club is lifting the no-sneakers dress code for the night.) Admission is still $10, though the cover doubles after midnight. Another advantage to arriving early: Until midnight, there's a special door that leads straight to Spank so you can bypass the normal lines.

I'll post updates as we get them.

I assume that the Noveau Riche at 1223 is this Saturday? If so, will the format (and crowd) of 1223's regular Sat. nights change for this event? Most people go to this club for partying and flirting, not for the music.
