DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC January 19 to January 22

Good times last weekend! Too many great moments to mention… let’s just say the high points for me were watching Katrina Mir play an amazing set in the Green Room at Flash for DJ Nav‘s Uptown House Experience, then getting down with my fellow freaks at the amazing Horsemeat Disco: MAL Saturday event. Kudos to DJ Lisa Frank and The NeedleXchange Crew  for another incredible event. An amazing Saturday night out! I hope you all had a similarly amazing time!

OK, down to business. As you may have heard, there’s a few things happening in DC this weekend that might complicate things a bit, but where there’s a will, there’s a way, and there’s enough in the way of quality events to help entice you to make the effort.  I’m spinning tomorrow night at Playlist at Eighteenth Street Lounge with my brothers Jubilee  & Ramirez. Really looking forward to throwing down again with two of my favorite local DJs! Join us on the patio from 9.45pm…no cover, no excuses!

Other highlights to look out for this weekend are F**K Politics, Let’s Dance! with Dansman, Joe L and Juan Zapata at Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club on Thursday night (that’s a sentiment I’m sure we can all get behind!), The Officially Unofficial Inaugural Ball with Sarah Myers, Juan Zapata and more at Ten Tigers Parlour and Dirty Five – Jandro’s 35th bday Bash with DJ Nav, Samantha Francesca, PHILCO, Steve Kirn, Hakob & Jandro at Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club on Friday, then on Saturday, Resident Nights at Flash looks tasty, with local favorites Chris Nitti, Jubilee and Ramirez holding things down on the club level, with Martín Miguel and Chris Kennedy in the Green Room and John Hawley & Kochi in the Flash Bar. Three floors of quality underground sounds right there. For soulful house lovers, Best of Both Worlds with Andrew Hogans and Ernest Fountain at Zeba Bar sees two titans of the genre joining forces, and is definitely the trip to Columbia HeightsHouse Music On H St. with DJ Sunny T, DJ Baby, Chosen and Arthur J at Mythology Restaurant and Lore Lounge also promises solid soulful vibes all night long. Finally, on Sunday, all roads lead to Eighteenth Street Lounge for ESL Sunday with Sam “The Man” Burns, Jeyone and Hold Tight featuring DJ Nav, Martín Miguel and Mike Guimond. Everything you need to wrap up your weekend just right!
