Washington, DC, May 19, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- On July 16th 2006, after a decade of Buzzlife events, Nation Nightclub will close its doors. The building will soon make way for development as the southeast waterfront is restructured in preparation for the recently approved baseball stadium.
“While we are saddened to see our home of so many years close, this is a very exciting time for Buzzlife. Our time in DC is no where near its end and we have exciting things planned for 2006 and beyond,” remarks Scott Henry, president of Buzzlife Productions.
Nation was originally named The Capitol Ballroom and opened its doors in 1996 under the management of Cellar Door Productions. Buzzlife began throwing the flagship event ‘Buzz’ in October of the same year. In 1998, ownership transferred to John Boyle and the then warehouse venue was transformed into a multi-level superclub that would soon host every major electronic act in the world. In 2003, Buzz revamped its musical style and reopened as Cubik.
Buzzlife and Nation have won awards from major industry publications across the world. Nation was awarded the title of ‘Best US Superclub’ and Buzzlife, ‘Best Event Promoter.’ This made Buzz and Nation a destination for the top DJs in the industry and a milestone up for up and coming Washington DC area DJs. Over the years, every 'Top 100 DJ' as named by BPM Magazine, the leading electronic music publication in the US, has performed at a Buzzlife Event at Nation.
