DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC September 3 to September 6

Hello to all my wonderful DC House Groovers! Katrina here, taking the controls for the Weekend Round Up this week, giving Andy a well deserved, stress-free Wednesday night off ūüôā Hope I don’t fuck it up hehe. Regarding last weekend: Shouts to DJ Nav, Jett Chandon, Andy Grant and the UKG Social crew¬†who threw down tune after tune at DC9 for our last Body Werk party. UK Garage¬†on THAT Void system was an experience to say the least. Luckily for you it was recorded!

 

Now, speaking of Body Werk,¬†I’ve got to get into emotional, proud Mama mode. My baby is going to turn one year old in October! To celebrate, Body Werk has accumulated a wealth of local talent to be on showcase for our September, October and November parties. So mark your calendars and click join on the event pages listed below so you can celebrate with us! I’ve even convinced myself that I can DJ at one of these parties so if anything you should come see my rise or fall, lol.

Now on to the picks! I think I’m just going to tell you all where I’m going to be hanging out each night. ¬†So Thursday night I’m¬†not actually going out. ¬†I’ve got one more night of Mommy duty, but IF I were to partake in school night shenanigans and risk going to work with little to no sleep Friday it would be because I was dancing my ass off at Velvet Lounge for TRANSMISSION¬†4|4¬†w/¬†Solomon¬†Sanchez and¬†Philip¬†Goyette and at Dunya for¬†Happy¬†Hour¬†House¬†Vibez¬†with DJ¬†OJI. Just a short walk between the two on U ST!

On Friday¬†I have strategically planned a low key night because I know Saturday and Sunday are going to waste me. I’ll start my night at Love Camp with DJ Meegs and DJ Soul¬†for a chill rooftop happy hour. Then¬†I’m going to pop in to Flash to hang in the bar with Trev-ski for his¬†Audio¬†Zen¬†thingy and would like to go upstairs if there’s a “free before” deal so I can check out Oliver Caine‘s opening set¬†for the¬†Sian¬†“Anthracite”¬†Album¬†Tour.

Hopefully I was able to sleep Friday, but I have persuasive friends, hehe. And that brings me to Saturday. I will be starting my night at U Hall for¬†Huxley with DJ Nav, Julius Jetson. ¬†I have magical memories of Huxley at U Hall and can’t wait to relive them. ¬†Then at some point DJ Nav and I (he doesn’t know this yet) are going to drive up to the Paradox in B’more to catch¬†THE ACID HOUSE featuring DJ Pierre. Holy shit what a night! I’m gonna make sure I’m in the building by 3:03 am ūüėČ

After a brief respite in a hammock on P ST I will be heading back to the Embassy Row Hotel for¬†DIVE with d.painter, Adrian Loving and Lock Danan. Adrian came over to hang in the Rave Basement last week and we bonded over vinyl so I’m going to make sure I’m there to support my new bud ūüôā Then I’m off to Public Bar for Sunglass Sundays¬†with JUBILEE 4hr BDay SunSet.¬†Happy Birthday Mo!! <3 <3 ¬†And I’ll probably walk next door to check out¬†ESL Labor Day Edition with Ron Carroll, Sam “The Man” Burns, Farid, Stylus Chris, The Metaphysical and Mr. Bonkerz. No work Monday means no excuses!!

Remember we can’t pick everything and as much as we’d love to be in multiple places at the same time, it’s just not doable. ¬†Remember to look through ALL your options for each night in the FULL listings below and if you attend a party that you think we missed out on, by all means, send us your personal review. ¬†We might just post it on our Facebook page!
