Friday June 27
DC's Seminal Indiepop Dance Night
w/ DJ Mark Zimin and DJ Stereo Faith
$10 Mainstage / Doors at 9:30
Founded 1999 in Washington DC, The Mousetrap has retained its status as one of the most important DJ nights in the past 15 years, 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.
The Mousetrap recognizes its 15th Anniversary on Friday, June 27th. Join us as we celebrate a decade and a half of dancing to the music you know and love, and wish founder Mark Zimin "farewell" as he relocates to the west coast on the 30th.
