Celebrating Episode #060 of the DC House Grooves Show on Underground Quality Radio with special guest Baronhawk Poitier (The NeedlExchange – TNX) joining residents Andy Grant, Ramirez and Katrina Mir. A dynamic DJ and producer, Baronhawk recently released a track on local DC label Future Times which we could not wait to play on our show! We knew we had to get him down to the DC House Grooves studio pronto. There’s no doubt it’s gonna be a great episode. Tune in from 10pm ET on Saturday November 16.
Apologies to anyone who checked DC House Grooves last week for your weekend listings. Had too much on my plate last week, so took a week off. Back again this week, feeling refreshed after an amazing time dancing to Theo Parrish at Darkroom in Baltimore last Saturday. It was amazing to see all the heads out in force to hear a true master throwing down, open to close. It really was as good as it gets! Kudos to Feroun and the rest of the Darkroom crew for curating another amazing event.
Before I get into this week’s listings, a quick heads up: next Saturday, November 23, Flash is hosting another edition of Resident Nights, where locals take over all three floors of the club. On the club level, our very own Katrina Mir will be throwing down an all vinyl set alongside Peter Kaufmann and Kaylasoul, while in the Green Room, Sam Burns brings the heat with support from Just Chad and Kochi and Jandro hold things down in the bar. Looking forward to another amazing night at Flash, and I hope to see you all there. Support your locals!
Back to this weekend, and you can catch me, Andy Grant, and Katrina Mir throwing down some laid back jams to socialize to at everyone’s favorite speakeasy Allegory at Eaton this Friday, open to close. Excited to explore the deeper reaches of our USBs! Wherever you’re heading on Friday night, stop by for a drink with us at Allegory. No cover!
Then on Saturday night, we’re at it again with Episode #060 of the DC House Grooves Show on Underground Quality Radio with special guest Baronhawk Poitier (TNX), Andy Grant, Katrina Mir and Ramirez. We’ve been wanting to get Baronhawk on the show for some time, and I can’t wait to hear what he’s got lined up. Tune in from 10pm ET this Saturday!
For a taste of what to expect on Saturday, check out the recording of our last show, featuring a headline set from yours truly.
Other major highlights this weekend include Sequence with VTSS, Rachel Noon, Gabberbitch69, Furtive, Rush Plus, Tsurigi and Juana this Friday at a very special location. For proper techno in the district this weekend, look no further than Sequence!
On Saturday, Flash looks a bit special, with Fabric London resident Craig Richards headlining the main room with support from Taimur & Navbox, with drum and bass in the bar from Rubble & Ranks and Ken Lazee.
Then on Sunday, all roads lead to Eighteenth Street Lounge for Sam Burns‘ weekly residency and Sundays Rooftop with Detroit’s Daniel Andres and Benoit. Daniel always delivers the goods, so don’t sleep on this one! No cover, so definitely the best value option for Sunday grooving!
See below for full listings of all the good stuff this weekend, Thursday through Sunday, plus weekend line ups for Flash and Eighteenth Street Lounge. Wherever you end up, have an amazing time, and I hope to see you out there on the dance floor.

So it’s another long holiday weekend here in Washington DC, and DC House Grooves Top Picks has the low down on everything you need to know to keep you grooving, Thursday through Labor Day Monday. Speaking of which, who’s up for some house music in the park on Labor Day? DC House Grooves has teamed up once again with Chrysis Entertainment for the Capital House Music Festival 2019, a FREE outdoor event in Malcolm X Park in Washington DC on Labor Day Monday, September 2nd. This family friendly event features an epic line up of local DJ talent, including Sam “The Man” Burns, DJ Tantra, Chosen, Tee Alford, Benoit, DJ Jay Jay, and of course myself, Andy Grant and Katrina Mir. There’ll also be live performances by Dannis Winston, Worldtown Sound Systems and live percussion from Muzikal Dunk. This FREE festival will raise awareness and funds for inner city youth music programs. All participants are donating their time and talent to the event, but donations help keep things on track. If you’re in a position to donate to the event, you can do so here. Every little bit helps! Hope to see you all there on Labor Day 🙂
