I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and are ready to get back out there on the dance floor! Gonna dive in to this very special New Year’s Eve Weekend edition of DC House Grooves Top Picks with the results of Round 3 of the DC House Grooves Flash NYE 2018 Free Ticket Giveaway. The lucky winner of Round 3 is Kyle Bolum. Congratulations Kyle! Check your email for details of how to claim your prize. Congratulations also to our Round 1 and 2 winners JT Christensen & Andrew Strain. Huge thanks to everyone who took part, and if you didn’t win, you can still grab advanced tickets here.
The big news this week is the reveal of the full line up for Flash‘s 26 hour New Year marathon, with an incredible line up of all your favorite locals (well, except me and Katrina Mir, who failed to make the cut. Maybe next year? 😉 ). Check out the flyer below for the full line up…save me typing them all out! You can be sure of an amazing New Year with this talent at the controls.
Another great option for New Year’s Day is the new annual tradition, Everybody Loves Music’s Disco Brunch. Kicking off at 7am with a stellar line up of local talent (see flyer below), this one’s sure to be a very special family affair. Wherever you plan on going New Year’s Eve, make sure you head over to the Disco Brunch on New Year’s Day and get down with the family. DC House Grooves has secured a very special 15% discount off tickets to Disco Brunch. Just click the link below to apply the discount.
So many other great options over New Year’s Weekend, which you’ll find listed below. Sasha‘s debut at Flash on Thursday deserves a special mention, as does Deep Sugar DC at U Street Music Hall on Saturday. You know you’re guaranteed a good time when the Deep Sugar family comes to DC!
Too many amazing events to mention on New Year’s Eve, but if you’re looking for something a bit more intimate, check out Jimmy Valentine’s NYE 2018 (general admission and open bar tickets available) and Studio Ga-Ga Presents: Hi-Resolution: An Unpretentious NYE. Both quality events with solid all local line ups where you can see in the New Year with like minded heads.
Ok, I’m out of time. You’ll find my full list of Top Picks for the weekend below. Every one a winner! No Meet the Locals Podcast this week, but here’s the embed of the last DC House Grooves Show on Underground Quality Radio with me and Katrina Mir. 2 hours of quality deep grooves. Next show is on Saturday January 6.
I’m planning on taking a break from this weekly post in the New Year, but I’ll be posting the good stuff on the DC House Grooves Facebook Page. Make sure you Like us and subscribe to notifications to learn about all the events you need to know about. See you on the dance floor!
