Black Cat, 1811 14th St., NW
Scoutmob fave DJ lil’e, who spins us right round, like a record baby, has a monthly gig spinning 80s pop at the Black Cat backstage. Put that together with the fact that the Black Cat’s downstairs Red Room bar could be the hippest spot in the city, and you’re sitting pretty.

Arcade Fire’s latest record, Reflektor, hit number one on the Billboard 200 and earned near-universal critical acclaim, so it’s no surprise that the Montreal songsters are filling arenas on their summer tour. Since the band is well-loved for their unique and often-interactive live shows, we’re excited to see what tricks they bring to a larger venue.
