DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC April 20 to April 23

First order of business this week is Midnight Project with legends Joe Claussell and Eddie C in Baltimore on Saturday with support from a long list of top tier local talent:  Hot CoffeeJoe LBenoitFerounJus NowhereDJ NavEric Sudol and Bo Hebert. This one could well be the event of the year so far, and attendance is mandatory! If you haven’t picked up your advanced tickets yet, what are you waiting for? I bought mine weeks ago! Luckily, there’s a very special discount for DC House Grooves readers. Just click the link below for 15% off advanced tickets:

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!

On Sunday Evening after Midnight Project, we’ll all be heading to the patio at Eighteenth Street Lounge for Sundays Rooftop featuring Detroit’s Ob Ignitt, with support from me (Andy Grant), and Benoit. The perfect way to decompress after Midnight Project, and best of all, Sundays Rooftop is absolutely free! That’s right, no cover.

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!
