DJ Announcement - Taking the Piss 5 Year Anniversary @ Marx Cafe - this Friday Oct. 19th

Some info on a DJ set of mine this Friday. It will be a short one (around 20 minutes) as they are inviting back all the guest DJs from the past five years to celebrate five years of the best indie/jangle rock/pop night in DC. Since the set will be so short, I plan to do all covers; either indie bands covering other songs, or indie songs covered by other bands.

Here is some more info from the Kaiser:

Well, as the story goes, the Pisser started a few months after Soundclash did, all those years ago. And actually, I wrote about that story already, so just go here and scroll down:

Also be sure to click on the 1019.mix for this month's "Streaming Piss" at You know you like it.

And now for the event itself. We've invited back every deejay and guest deejay from our 5 year history. What's the end result of that? 15 deejays this Friday night (possibly more), each doing a 20-min set, putting their personal stamp on the evening and showing you the wide range of perfectly framed indie pop moments. We'll have much of DC's indie pop illuminati working it that night - musicians, deejays, and gladhanders like myself. Specifically, on hand will be representatives of Velocity Girl, Barcelona, Eggs, the Antiques, Lorelei, Boyracer, Parlor Scouts, BLISS, We Fought the Big One, the First Ladies DJ Collective, and that's enough already. Crazy rhythms, all night. Blink and you'll miss a set.

Commemorative pins are in the works. Come and get one and celebrate with us.

WHERE: Marx Cafe, 3203 Mt. Pleasant St, NW
WHEN: Friday, October 19, 2007, from 10 pm to 3 am
