Saying Goodbye

Our last pieces of media love:

The members of local bloggers-cum-DJs collective Bluestate celebrate their second anniversary tonight at the Black Cat, but it's a bittersweet birthday: The four DJs are going their separate ways after one last no-cover party. Say farewell, then hit the dancefloor for a night of Britpop, indie rock, Swedepop, remixes and '80s classics. Doors are at 10. (Full disclosure: Fritz has been a guest DJ at one of their previous events.) -- The Washington Post Nightlife Agenda

Our good friends at Bluestate have been spinning some of the best free dance nights around town for the last two years, but sadly have decided their collective venture has run its course. Say goodbye with them tonight at their farewell bash in Black Cat's back room, featuring songs from The Presets, Scissor Sisters, Shiny Toy Guns, Gwen Stefani, The Rapture, that band from Sweden that sounds like New Order, "SexyBack," The Ramones, MSTRKRFT, Oasis, The Gossip, Billy Idol, Goldfrapp, and of course James Brown ( R.I.P.). Regular DJs Leafblower, Seeking Irony and DCSOB will be joined by special guest Ms. Gl*mrocker. Free as usual, kicking off at 9:30 p.m. -- DCist.com New Year's Weekend Picks
