Do not hesitate on this one! Joe Claussell and Eddie C individually are worth the price of admission alone. The chance to see both of them on the same line up with a supporting line up of DC and Baltimore’s finest for just $20 is unheard of. Pure house music bliss!

Heads up about one last event before I get into things for this weekend. Next Wednesday, April 26, the 1432R and Future Times crews join forces to bring international festival super stars Juju & Jordash to Ten Tigers Parlor, with support from Dreamcast. Anyone who has heard me play any time recently will be familiar with Juju & Jordash, their track Waldorf Salad being a fixture in my record bag for the past year or so. I know I keep saying it, but you really don’t want to miss this one. Cover is just $5, which really is a bargain! Anywho, which not so long ago featured PLO Man in the Flash bar, works the magic once again, bringing Juju & Jordash to DC for a midweek session that you won’t forget! I know I’ll be there, Thursday morning regrets be damned!

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC April 13 to April 16

I didn’t make it out last weekend other than a fun cruise down the Potomac for the Sam Burns Boat Party, but I’ve gotta say I had some serious feelings of missing out when I saw the pictures from Sunday Love with Bedouin at Flash. Looked like an amazing vibe! Congratulations to Flash for curating another quality party series. Looking forward to what you’ve got in store for us this summer! The big news this weekend is Friday’s annual Code 13 party celebrating Denis Bejan‘s birthday, and this year’s event looks like the best one yet! French minimal masters Zendid in a secret warehouse location, with support from an all star local lineup featuring Navbox, DJ Lisa Frank, Chris Nitti and Taiga with Prescription‘s Martin Audio sound system, stunning visuals and art installations, dancing until sunrise and perhaps beyond, this one promises to be really special. Advanced tickets are strongly recommended; use the link below to get the exclusive DC House Grooves discount. Still some $15 first release tickets available if you move fast!

Give me a 10% discount off tickets to CODE 13!

CODE 13 with Zendid, Navbox, DJ Lisa Frank, Chris Nitti & Taiga at Warehouse Location

While I’m on the subject of discounts, don’t forget DC House Grooves still has a 15% discount available for Midnight Project with Joe Claussell on April 22 in Baltimore.  You can even pick up a combined ticket including admission to Kowli‘s event with Eddie C the same night. Just click the link below for the discount:

I’ve been slacking off a bit lately re: bring you mixes to listen to, but I’m going to make up for that this week with something really special: the latest Hooked Podcast from Sarah Myers, featuring Sarah MyersHalloran and DC House Grooves‘ very own Katrina Mir, recorded live in the Green Room at Flash on April 1. I was there that night, and let me tell you something: the Flash rooftop was seriously jumping! Fortunately it was all recorded, and you can catch the best of it right here. Enjoy! Follow Sarah Myers on SoundCloud for more quality podcasts.

 

Right, let’s get down to business re: this weekend.

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC April 6 to April 9

Need to get through this quickly this week, as I’m off to play at Tiger Bomb at Ten Tigers Parlour tonight with Katrina Mir, and I still haven’t packed my record bag! If you’re reading this on Thursday morning, too bad, you missed it. If you’re reading this on Wednesday night, then hurry on over to Ten Tigers Parlour for quality hump day underground grooves. Tiger Bomb at Ten Tigers is the go to spot for curing those midweek blues with a spot of dance floor therapy. Check the full April line up:

As I mentioned last week, on Saturday afternoon I’m spinning with local hero Sam “The Man” Burns on a boat sailing down the Potomac river. The Sam Burns Boat Party Featuring Andy Grant sets sail from Georgetown at 3.30pm on Saturday. Tickets are limited and have been selling fast, but there are still a few left, including combined tickets for the boat and the after party at DC9 Nigthclub. Even better, DC House Grooves has an exclusive 20% discount. Just click the link below to apply the discount, and I’ll see you on the boat!

Thursday brings the next adventure for the Grand Ancestor sound system and Grand Ancestor x Bassline Business presents Vivek Malleus at The DC Eagle, which promises to be one for the books. For the last couple of weeks, DC House Grooves has been offering a chance to win a pair of free tickets to one lucky winner, and I’m pleased to announce that winner, selected entirely at random, is Amit Nandy. Just show up and show your ID at the door for free entry for you and a guest! If you didn’t win, don’t worry, you can still buy advanced tickets for just $10, or you can pay $15 at the door.

Looking beyond this weekend, news of a few warehouse joints that you should have on your radar. Next weekend brings the annual Code 13 party celebrating Denis Bejan‘s birthday, and this year he’s put together an incredible lineup featuring French minimal masters Zendid with support from local superstars NavboxLisa FrankChris Nitti and Taiga. Doesn’t get much better than that! Advanced tickets are $15, more on the door.

Another party you need know about is Midnight Project in Baltimore with the legendary Joe Claussell performing a six hour set with support from Benoit Feroun. The last Midnight Project with Joe was the stuff of legend, culminating with the man himself joining us on the dance floor at 9am after an unbelievable musical journey. Believe me, you won’t want to miss this one! To add to the magic, Eddie C is also in Baltimore earlier that same night with support from one of my favorite locals Joe L and Sticky Fingers Collective‘s HOT COFFEE, and you can buy a combination ticket to both events for just $25. But wait…That’s not all! Use the link below to get a 15% discountDC House Grooves is always looking out for you!

One last thing before I get to this week’s listings, mark May 12 in your calendar, as that’s the date of Flash‘s recently announced mystery event Flash [OFF]. As of now, the line up is a mystery; all we know is it’s at a brand new warehouse space in the District. Flash‘s events are always pretty special, so if you know what’s good for you, you’ll grab the $20 Tickets of Trust. Flash‘s special events always feature well curated, top tier international and local talent. Don’t sleep, though! Once the line up goes public, the price goes up.

Speaking of which, here’s the full listings Thursday through Sunday. Look out for the DC House Grooves Top Picks! The Top Pick logo is your sign that a good time lies ahead.
