    Mousetrap 25th Anniversary Britpop Dance Party
    8:00 - $10 Advance / $15 Day of Show - All Ages

    Founded 1999 in Washington DC, The Mousetrap has retained its status as one of the most important DJ nights - becoming the progenitor of many nights to follow and establishing a huge pantheon of Britpop and Indiepop tunes as standards in the minds of party-goers. The first night in DC to break out Belle & Sebastian in 1999, Peter Bjorn & John in 2006 and MGMT's "Kids" in 2008. Considered a "retro" night by many because we always acknowledge our Indiepop heroes every party, we care as much about the new tracks as the old and try to give everything a fair shake. We play everything from mid-80's C86, late-70's punk to the leading edge of indie guitar pop.

    7:30 - $20 Advance / $22 Day of Show - All Ages

    MARY TIMONY
    Washington, DC
    https://marytimony.bandcamp.com/
    For more than 30 years, singer-songwriter and guitar hero Mary Timony has cut a distinctive path through the world of independent music, most recently as vocalist and guitarist of acclaimed garage-pop power trio Ex Hex (Merge) but also as a member of seminal post-punk band Autoclave (Dischord), celebrated leader of the deeply influential Helium (Matador), multifaceted solo artist (Matador, Lookout!, Kill Rock Stars), and a co-founder of supergroup Wild Flag (Merge). Described by Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein as “Mary Shelley with a guitar” and dubbed “a trailblazer and an innovator” by [Mary’s former guitar student] Lindsey Jordan a.k.a. Snail Mail, Timony has distinguished herself as one of her generation’s most influential guitarists and songwriters. Although she has remained a cult hero and critical favorite since the early ’90s, appearing everywhere from 120 Minutes episodes to Coachella sets, Timony’s many triumphs have long been counterbalanced by crippling doubt and self-nullification. Her fifth solo album, Untame the Tiger, approaches these emotions head on. Her first solo
    release in 15 years is a startling document of an artist fully coming into her own power during the fourth decade of her career. It is the product of lessons learned during life-altering struggle.

    7:30 - $20 tickets - All Ages


    This fundraiser show featuring local DC and Baltimore hardcore bands will go towards helping organizations doing life saving work in Gaza. 

     

    Since the start of Israel's occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip in 1967, Palestinians have faced systemic colonial violence and displacement. Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7, 2023 have included the intentional targeting of residential buildings, schools, hospitals, and humanitarian organizations - leading to large scale civilian deaths. The death toll of Palestinians as of February 11, 2024 is over 28,000 which includes 13,000 children. There are also over 67,000 Palestinians wounded. Amidst ongoing attacks, Palestinians are facing widespread starvation and disease from the destruction of infrastructure.


     

    Come support the Palestine Red Crescent Society and Connecting Humanity, and their life saving work! Freedom for Palestine! Freedom for Gaza!

    For two decades, DJ lil'e has kept dancefloors packed spinning her Right Round 80s alternative Dance Party. Join us in keeping the party going this month as she brings her unique flavor of 80s alternative and new wave dance music to the Black Cat. If you want to move your feet to an 80s dance party that's different than the usual neon fare, this is the dance party for you!

    Kangal is a veteran DJ who has played darkwave/goth/industrial across the U.S. and internationally for over 25 years. Hailing from Washington DC, where he held residencies at the Black Cat, DC9, Nation, and the Roxy, he now calls the NY/NJ area home, and you can find him at dark discos and band nights all over the area. Recent local appearances include the Red Party at the Mercury Lounge (NY),  QXT's Nightclub (Newark NJ), Hell Phone (NY), and A Murder of Crows Festival 2022 & 2023. Further afield he recently featured at  WCKD WKND Festival 2023 (Raleigh NC), The Milestone (Charlotte NC) and at the Albany (London, UK). Between live gigs you can find him bringing the Dark Disco and Goth/Industrial party 3 nights a week on Twitch at www.twitch.tv/djkangal, and find out the latest exploits at djkangal.com
