This Saturday, October 26, Bliss is excited to present the U Hall debut of Siberian producer and DJ Nina Kraviz. With her special taste for deep house, techno and acid, Nina Kraviz has become one of the most in-demand artists of the moment. Formerly a dentist, Kraviz reinvented herself into a rising Moscow DJ and secured a long-running residency at the well-established Russian club Propaganda. The subsequent release of her eponymous debut album in early 2012 gave widespread momentum to Kraviz, who has not stopped moving since.
Opening for Nina Kraviz are Marko Peli and Lomez. Doors open at 10:00 PM; free before 11:00 for 21+.
This Saturday, October 19th, Blisspop presents the U Hall debut of LOST & SOUND, a party led by residents Chris Nitti and Lxsx Frxnk. Previously hailing at The Velvet Lounge and the 9:30 Club Backbar, LOST & SOUND focuses on house and techno aimed “strictly for the weirdos, miscreants and those who like to explore new ground, sounds, themselves and others.” The party’s club debut celebrates Chris Nitti’s 30th birthday and aptly features Will Eastman, Lxsx Frxnk, Chris Nitti, aLamont, The Elders and special guest host Graham Jackson in the line-up. All door proceeds from the night will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

This Saturday we ring in over a decade of insane dancing at BLISS’ 13th Anniversary Party. Since its inception at the now defunct Metro Cafe, BLISS has revved up the District with residencies at Black Cat and 9:30 Club, and has become the foundation of its current home, U Street Music Hall. Joining the revelries are Worthy playing a headlining set, Kingdom and Bok Bok playing back-to-back, and Charles Feelgood. The occasion would not be complete without a set from Blisspop founder and resident, Will Eastman, whose EP release Caroline/Rabid calls for an additional reason to celebrate.
