Become A Woman, And They'll Throw In The DJ Lesson For Free

Wonkabout

Remember back in, say, 1999, when everyone you knew had suddenly become a DJ, irrespective of whatever horrific musical atrocities they committed in the pursuit? Well, those days can be yours once more, but this time to a better end than just getting free, uh, beer, or whatever.Girls Rock! DC is giving free DJ lessons tonight at the Black Cat, in part to disseminate the dark arts of mixology, and in part to raise funds for girls' music education. There is just one tiny (obvious) catch.


Sorry dudes, but tonight just isn't your night: you must be a female to participate. Should you possess the correct genetic composition, you will receive instruction on equipment, beat counting, and mixing songs from local DJs. The two-hour lesson is open to women of all ages; we just ask that you be cognizant of what you mash up -- there is a finite number of repurposed Paul McCartney/Fergie songs the world can absorb before it gives up and collapses in on itself.

Donations are welcome in lieu of an entrance fee; you can RSVP here.

And since we're already shilling for them, Girls Rock! DC also coordinates a bunch of other well-meaning activities like a day camp for girls -- since you haven't received your cold hard stimulus cash yet, you can donate your time here.

Intro to DJing Class, 9:30PM to 11:30PM, donations suggested. [Black Cat Backstage]

IMPORTANT FACTUAL UPDATE: The event is now closed to new registrants, but you can still come and observe. They'll hold another one of these next month for all you losers who couldn't register this time.

Barack Obama delivered his first major address of his post-presidency Tuesday at an event in Johannesburg, South Africa, honoring the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's birth. It was -- as you'd expect for the occasion -- appropriately dignified and thoughtful. It was also every bit as inspiring as you might expect from the first black American president speaking in memory of the first black president of a nation that for most of its modern history was synonymous with apartheid. Let's take some time to bask in what an actual world leader sounds like, shall we?

Guess what Vladimir Putin's getting for Christmas! He's been dropping hints, and you know the Big Orange Baboon can't say no to him for some unknown reason. Gonna be so cute when little Vladdy stumbles down the stairs in his PJs, brushes the sleep from his eyes, and finds MONTENEGRO all wrapped up with a big bow under the Christmas tree. Adorbz!

Oh, but we are to kid! Just a little levity as President Treasonweasel slams a sledgehammer into the international framework that kept us out of another world war for the past 70 years. So why are we suddenly talking about a tinyass country whose chief export appears to be consonants? (Sorry, Montenegro. But your Predsjednik Crne Gore is Milo Đukanović, and your capital city is Cetinje, which is just cheating at Scrabble.)

Well! Donald Trump just got out of a two-hour, closed-door meeting with Vladimir Putin, whose government tried to stage a coup in 2016 to assassinate Đukanović and stop Montenegro's accession to the European Union. Which might not be a coincidence!
