Ballard Loft

5105 Ballard Ave. N.W. / 21+

5 p.m. / DJ Mike Steve This red-haired vixen (yes, she's all woman—don't let that moniker fool you) got her start DJing during Sunday Fundays at Hazlewood, quickly cultivating a following for her unabashed love of '80s metal, pop, and punk. It's never a total retro-fest, however; she blends in newer artists like the Drones and Black Keys with ease, and gives plenty of love to local acts new and old, such as The Intelligence and the Sonics. 3, 7, & 11 p.m. / Karaoke  See preview. 9 p.m. / DJ Danger Nun When she's not co-fronting Thee Sgt. Major III with local icon Kurt Bloch or running Los Rubbish, her sassy and stylish vintage store in Ballard, vocalist Leslie Beattie loves to throw down deep cuts of old-school new wave, garage, and pop. Girlfriend knows her jams and can fill a dance floor lickity-split. 1 a.m. / DJ Faust Faustine Hudson is a formidable force as a drummer, holding down rhythmic roles in Whalebones, Pearly Gate Music, Ghosts I've Met, Eugene Wendell and The Demon Rind, and Chain and the Gang. Tonight she brings her love of classic soul to the decks, where she'll close down the party with classic cuts by Ike Turner, Howard Tate, and Joe Tex.
