tomorrow night at U St Music Hall:
Bliss 10 Year Anniversary Party

Tomorrow night (Saturday, September 25) Will Eastman's forward-thinking dance party, Bliss, celebrates its ten year anniversary with long-time regular guest Brian Billion (U Hall). This month's music will feature plenty of classic Bliss favorites from the past decade as well as the cutting edge new music for which Bliss is known. Limited edition Bliss anniversary t-shirts will be for sale alongside drink and food specials all night; featuring the Monte Cristo-style "Blisspop Bratwurst." Started by Eastman in September of 2000, Bliss began as a small indie pop/punk/electropop dance party at the now-defunct Metro Cafe, and has since grown into one of the most successful, longest-standing monthly parties held in D.C.; moving to the Black Cat Backstage before expanding to U Street Music Hall this year. The show is from 10pm to 3am and tickets are just $10 - www.ustreetmusichall.com. 18+
