Local DJ Joshua spins for Gay/Bash! A Queer Night of Rock and Pop Gems, a party featuring gay-popular pop throughout the years -- or at least, the DJ's idea of gay gems. If he'll take requests, hopefully somebody will chime in with "Tainted Love" -- or "Bohemian Rhapsody." And despite Cyndi Lauper's obvious "True Colors," we'd argue for "She Bop" instead. What other straight pop star would sing about a gay pornography magazine -- all as part of an ode to masturbation? Talk about a firework. Friday, Jan. 28. Doors at 9:30 p.m. Black Cat Backstage, 1811 14th St. NW. Tickets are $5. Call 202-667-4490 or visit blackcatdc.com.
