Sorry to have to do this two weeks in a row, but I’m phoning it in again for this week’s DC House Grooves Top Picks. Another busy weekend here in the District, but I just don’t have time to do it all justice. Thursday night, take your pick between Playlist with Jubilee & friends at Eighteenth Street Lounge or Davide Squillace with Mina at Flash, then on Friday night, I recommend heading to U Street Music Hall for Deep Sugar‘s 15th Anniversary celebrations with Ultra Naté, Lisa Moody and Mookie Brock on the opening set. Saturday night, Katrina Mir and I are joined by special guest Tyler Schmith (Beasts of Play) for DC House Grooves in the Flash Bar, as part of a packed line up including ItaloJohnson, Mazi R, Concret and Mike Harvey. Serious business all round, advanced tickets recommended.
After we wrap at Flash, we’ll be heading up to everyone’s favorite warehouse location to catch the legendary Rick Wade with Feroun and Team Zapata give the Grand Ancestor 2.0 sound system a proper workout. The perfect way to see in Sunday! Still a few early bird tickets available if you move fast. Advance tickets highly recommended! As for Sunday, Sunday Love with Powel, K.atou and Erica Marcantonio looks like a great bet, and it’s FREE with RSVP. Vinyl heads should also check out the DC Record Fair and The Universal Listening Room at U Street Music Hall. Buy some new records, listen to som great records. Sounds like a great way to wrap up the weekend!
OK, here are this week’s DC House Grooves Top Picks. You know the drill by now, just click the link for each day to see a list of the best events over on Facebook. Quality underground house, techno, drum and bass and more!
I’ll no doubt be back next week for another post, and hopefully I’ll have a bit more time to do everything justice. Hope you can make it out to Flash this Saturday to hang with us in the bar. Come introduce yourself at the DJ booth! Mention DC House Grooves, and I may just buy you a drink 🙂
