DJ Will Eastman brings another night of dance grooves to the Black Cat. I caught a set of his a couple of weeks back at Saint X and enjoyed it so much I overimbibed and fell down. Twice. Here’s how Will described Bliss to me:
Bliss is a no attitude, just fun party where people can expect insane dancing. The music ranges from indie and electropop to house, club, alternative, and classics. There are always a few left field things, too, like a random Phil Collins track just to keep people guessing, and, well, to tell the truth, I like Phil Collins. People who are passionate about music, have a good sense of humor, and don’t take themselves too seriously are pretty much who one will meet at Bliss. Our guest DJ Saturday is Ed Dudes of Velodrome and This Ain’t No Disco. This month, we have Bliss 8 year anniversary t-shirts for sale, too! A portion of proceeds go to the Obama 2008 campaign.

Guest DJ: Ed Dudes (Velodrome, This Ain’t No Disco)
Three years ago, DC got a whole lot better. I mean, a whole, whole hell of a lot better. You see, Ed Dudes moved to DC three years ago. Since then, he’s been regaling the city with the finest dance music south of NYC. Ed’s residencies, Velodrome and This Ain’t No Disco, are unlike any other in the district. Velodrome is the only night dedicated to Italo, post punk, proto house and techno, with a live band every month. His other residency, This Ain’t No Disco, is the night to hear the spacey and weird side of disco and house. One thing’s for sure: seeing Ed play is an unquestionable trip to space.
