Christine Moritz was mentioned in the November 24, 2009 edition of "Nightlife Agenda: This Week in Nightlife," a feature in which Washingtonpost.com's Fritz Hahn, Rhome Anderson, and David Malitz share their entertainment recommendations for the week.

The excerpt:

Thursday, November 26

Over the past eight years, British studio wizards Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker have assembled a cast of musicians to craft engrossing albums that could be classified as down-tempo electronica, but which buck the constraints of genre. On tour, rather than cryptically fiddle with knobs onstage, Zero 7 (listen) employs a New Age orchestra of sorts to translate the complex productions into epic sonic experiences using computers and effects units as well as the standard guitar/bass/drums/keyboards/horns lineup. On top of that are the powerhouse vocals of Sia Furler and Sophie Barker, the original engine that broke the band into the mainstream. Zero 7 is currently touring with Eska Mtungwazi, a force in her own right in the U.K.'s trad jazz, nu soul and broken beat scenes. Local DJ Christine Moritz opens tonight's show at the 9:30 Club.
