midnightscott @ : Don't miss Midnight's 10th annual Halloween Party on Oct. 27!
Here's a reminder: Midnight's 10th annual Halloween Party is now less than two weeks away. As usual, we'll be hosting a costume contest (with hundreds of dollars in cash prizes) shortly after the witching hour; and our guests do the judging, so be sure to bring all your friends out to cheer you on! Midnight resident DJs DuJour and Gleek will be joined behind the decks by Liebchen, who's making a rare visit from NYC. There'll be drink and food specials, courtesy of The Meeting Place, all evening long, plus extra candy, spooky decorations, and lighting. Don't forget, too, that because Midnight is 18+ you can introduce your younger friends to the scene on this most gothic of nights, and that the cover remains a mere $5 (unless you take advantage of our discount admission deals, of course). For full details, keep an eye on http://www.dcmidnight.com
Hope to see you out on the 27th!

2501 @ : Alchemy at Phase 1 Dupont for May 17th 2012
After an amazing opening night, we are back to bring you week two of Alchemy in it's awesome new venue. Remember the basics:

Drinks are relatively low priced for DC clubs these days, but also make sure to ask the bartenders about specials for the night as well!
This week Alchemy brings you the following DJ lineup:
Steven Archer (Ego Likeness, Spellbound, Alchemy, chiar0scuro, etc, etc,etc)
Cheetah Dave (XUBERX, DC Midnight)
Du Jour (DC Midnight)
Dirty B (Alchemy, Tronik, Chronos)
2501 (Alchemy, Tronik, Chronos, Psychoburbia)
The format last week of mostly harder electro in the big room and *mostly* oldschool industrial/goth/80's/softer electro in the back seemed to work out nicely, so for now we're going to stick with it.
A note: there was some confusion early on last week about the 2-4-1 admission before 10. If you had trouble with this last week, please speak to Kit at her bar, or else see Tony or Brian this week, and we'll take care of it.
