Dunkelheit is the newest alternative music dance party in Washington, DC. Dunkelheit means “darkness” in German and it will live up to its name by featuring the best dark electro music from the other side of the Atlantic.
This month in honor of April Fool’s Day, the DJs will be randomly throwing in songs from non-European bands. Don’t let them fool you! If you are the first one to notice a non-Euro song, then you will receive a free CD (DJ’s choice). Number of prizes will be determined by the number of non-Euro songs the DJs choose to play, so expect the unexpected!
The Guest DJ will be Dan Barrett of Worms of the Earth. Dan started DJing trance and psy-trance in '04 at house parties/raves and then got into producing music seriously and distanced himself from the rave scene. Dan is frequently denied DJ spots at goth/industrial events for playing too much new, hard music. He has DJed at Ascension, Bound, and Exposure. Expect to hear dark, upbeat, dance-able tunes that you haven't heard before, but will definitely want to hear again.
M!NDJacket will be the vendor for April. M!ndJacket creates custom screenprinted t-shirts for guys and girls. Expect to see lots of witty and interesting designs. Every shirt is just $15. Check out the current inventory at www.mindjacket.com.
Dunkelheit has two floors of music (dance floor upstairs and lounge downstairs), two bars, private smoking deck, and a kitchen serving up delicious food. Don’t forget to bring cash for the upstairs bar since credit cards are only accepted downstairs
