Cryfest: The Cure vs. The Smiths Dance Party at the Black Cat

The Smiths

The Black Cat hosts Cryfest: The Cure vs. The Smiths, one of its popular DJ-driven battle-of-the-bands dance parties, and this one may actually be a cry fest if you don’t like mopey ’80s rock. Everyone else can cheer on DJs Steve Ep, DJ Missguided, Killa K and Krasty McNasty as they spin tunes featuring Robert Smith’s forlorn croons and whine as they play the whines of Morrissey — or vice versa, depending on which band you prefer. Friday, Feb. 21. Doors at 9:30 p.m. Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW. Tickets are $10. Call 202-667-4490 or visit
