As I do each and every week, I’veincluded flyers for all my picks below (or a screenshot if I can’t find a flyer), and Facebook users can click the section titles to see the list of events over on Facebook, although curiously I can’t seem to get the link for Friday to work this week. Oh well, you’ll figure it out.

The DC House Grooves crew will be back at it again this Saturday with another DC House Grooves Show on Berlin’s Underground Quality Radio, featuring myself, Katrina Mir & Ramirez throwing down the qualiity underground jams. First show since we got back from London with a huge stack of new vinyl, and I hear Ramirez dropped some serious coin on new wax in NYC last weekend. Tune in from 10pm ET on Saturday for the real underground shit.

DC House Grooves Show on Underground Quality Radio

Too much great stuff to highlight this weekend, but if you only do one thing, I recommend checking out AfterMarket with Tokyo’s Powder & 5ive with local support from Sleepy G, Keenan Orr and Mike Harvey at a secret warehouse location this Friday. With sound by Grand Ancestor, this one is sure to be just a little bit special. Advance tickets are required for this event, so grab yours now. Proper vibes, serious sound.

Other than that, all roads lead to Eighteenth Street Lounge on Sunday for Sam Burns‘ weekly residency, and another edition of Sundays Rooftop out on the patio with Sergio Santos and Benoit. Always the best way to wrap up your weekend on the dance floor!

DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC February 28 to March 3

Katrina Mir and I made it back from our crazy weekender in London in one piece. Great to meet so many Internet friends in person, and shout out to the Secret Ingredient and For Those That Knoe crews for throwing an amazing event. Grow Tottenham is a perfect underground warehouse space, so if you’re visiting London, be sure to check out events at Grow. A little bit off the beaten path, but all the better for it. Derek Carr‘s debut live set was one for the books, here’s hoping he makes it stateside and makes it to DC in the very near future! Fantastic sets from Jade Seatle, Ben Boe and Istanbul’s Rubsilent made for an amazing night on the dance floor, and with so many familiar faces from the We’re Going Deep Facebook group in attendance, it was a real family affair. Totally worth the transatlantic trip! Anyway, back in DC now, and ready for another weekend on the dance floor here in the nation’s capital. Before I get into this week’s festivities, here’s a new Meet the Locals podcast from relative newcomer to the Washington DC electronic music community, Dastan:

So what’s on deck this weekend? As always, I’ve included below the flyers for all the best underground events in DC over the weeekend, Thursday through Sunday, and Facebook users can click the section heading for each day to see a list of the even pages over on Facebook. Too much good stuff to get into this weekend, but make sure you support two charity events on Sunday afternoon. At Eighteenth Street Lounge, the Dear Mama fundraiser is helping support The House That U Built, Cadence and Overeasy Tea Dance‘s Annie / Vanniety Kills who is unable to work and needs our help. Featuring an incredible line up of local talent across three dance floors, this promises to help someone who contributes greatly to our local electronic music community. Advance tickets and raffle tickets are available over on Resident Advisor.

Fundraiser-for-vanniety-kills

The other charity event this Sunday afternoon is Soul at Flash, featuring a line up of DJs raising funds for Jeannie Pilling’s Medical Fund. Free entry. Full info over on Resident Advisor, and you can contribute to the GoFundMe here.

Both events worthy causes, so please try and support if you can. Always better partying when you know it is supporting a great cause.

That’s all for this week’s post. Have a great time out there, and make sure you check back next week for info on all the best events in Washington DC, Thursday through Sunday.

Sorry no DC House Grooves Top Picks This Week

Just a quick post to let you know I won’t have time to compile a Top Picks post this weekend. Getting ready to head to Europe for the weekend to catch Derek Carr live in London at the Secret Ingredients x For Those That Knoe party in London this Friday, so won’t have time to pull everything together. Taking a quick look at what’s what this weekend, I recommend Playlist with Jubilee & Ramirez at Eighteenth Street Lounge on Thursday, A Family Affair with CoolHandLuke, Hugo  Zapata & Benoit at Jimmy Valentine’s on Friday, Late Night Mischief with Session Victim, Martín  MiguelTeam  Zapata  Hot Coffee at warehouse location TBD on Saturday, then round out the weekend at Eighteenth Street Lounge with Sam Burns in the Gold Room and Sundays Rooftop with Marc Cotterell and Benoit out on the patio. Oh, and I heard that Auntie Flo will be spinning a few tunes at Bump’n’Grind in Silver Spring on Friday evening from 7pm to 9pm ahead of his Flash debut on Friday night.

Late Night Mischief Session Victim

If you’re planning on heading to Late Night Mischief with Session Victimon Saturday, make sure you grab your tickets in advance, as there be no tickets available on the door.Have a great weekend on the dance floor, and provided I get back from London in one piece, I should be back with a regular DC House Grooves Top Picks post next week.
