Nightlife Agenda Update

By Fritz Hahn

If all the options in the usual Nightlife Agenda column weren't enough, we've got three more ideas for you.

Friday, Dec. 12
Gavin Rossdale met fame in the '90s as the frontman of Bush, the post-grunge band who had huge success with "Comedown," "Everything's Zen," "Swallowed," "Glycerine" and other radio-friendly hits. These days, despite a new solo album, "Wanderlust," and the single "Love Remains the Same," he's still better known as Mr. Gwen Stefani. Rossdale's been talking up the chance of a Bush reunion in the press recently, but tonight at Clarendon Ballroom, it's just him and an acoustic guitar at a free show sponsored by local radio station Hot 99.5. Doors open at 9, and there's bound to be a very long line, so arrive early for the best chance of getting in.

Recent Nightlife Agendas have been stuffed with events asking you to bring toys for sick children or canned goods for needy families. The Washington Humane Society has an interesting twist on that tonight at Midtown, asking guests to bring pillows or blankets for dogs at the Humane Society's shelters. An incentive to be generous: you get a free shot for every item you donate. Women receive free admission all night and guys can skip the cover by emailing an RSVP to jamie@jamiehess.com.

Sunday, Dec. 14
Well, that was fast. Lizard Lounge, the cruisey, fun gay happy hour that made a triumphant return to Lima this summer after a long hiatus, is shutting down again after Sunday's party. Founder/promoter Mark Lee says that the stuttering economy means the night is no longer viable. Shame. Send the Lizard off with a bang tonight. As always, there's no cover, doors open at 8, and Kostas and Luke Easley provide energetic dance music for the end of your weekend. Get there early: Absolut vodka drinks are $2 until 10.
