Seattle Gay Scene broke the news yesterday that Kevin Kauer, better known as DJ Nark, will be overseeing the creative direction of that new dance club all the kids are talking about (the one they're building over on Broadway between the frame store and the glass-cutting place).

The artist renderings of the interior are giving me a weird 90s flashback (ye olde gay Jestons look), but all that really matters is the lineup of artists Nark will be bringing into the space. Nark is the guy who brought John Cameron Mitchell to town last week, and he told me he's an "excited puppy" about his new gig. When I made him tell me acts he's bringing to Q—or acts he wants to bring to Q—he tossed out a billion names:

Cut Copy, Daniel Wang, Joey Negro, Kim Ann Foxman, Horse Meat Disco, Crazy P, Tiger & Woods, Frankie Knuckles, Ilija Rudman, Sleazy McQueen, Edit Murphy, Francois K, Chris Malinchuck, Honey Soundsystem, Classix, Andy Butler, Greg Wilson, Maxxi Soundsystem, Jacques Renault, In Flagranti, Maceo Plex, and many, many more plus favorite DJs out of SF, LA, and NYC...

The guy's unstoppable. Good on ya, Q.
