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!

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. Looks like another crazy weekend on the dance floor, with such an incredible line up of events, you’re going to need to make someDC House Grooves Top Picktough decisions!
