Sorry about not posting anything last week; just had too much on, and couldn’t find the time. Gonna be keeping things short and sweet this week. Before I get into this week’s Top Picks of the best underground house and electronic music events and around Washington DC this weekend, I’ve got news of our next Beats Maneuver event. Hot on the heels of our season of summer rooftop parties at Public Bar, this Columbus Day weekend we’ve teamed up with Roots & Spirits, UDP Music and Vibe to bring you an epic celebration of real house music across two dance floors, featuring Jephté Guillaume (Tèt Kale Recordings, Shelter Recordings, Ibadan), Baronhawk Poiter (TNX), KayLaSoul and residents Ramirez & Andy Grant (yep, that’s me!). Continuing our tradition of booking quality, organic house music artists who you don’t often see booked in Washington DC, we’re super excited to hear Jephté Guillaume performing live! If you’re not familiar with Jephté, get familiar! It’s going to be a really special night, and because it’s a holiday weekend, we’ll be going late, until 4am. So when and where is all this magic going to happen? Sunday October 7 at 12|30 on 9th Street NW. It’s a great new spot with a quality sound system and a great vibe, so head over to Eventbrite now to grab your tickets, and we’ll see you on the dance floor on October 7. No work that Monday, so no excuses!

Sounds like fun, right? Well, before we get there, we’ve got to get through this weekend, and there’s a whole host of quality events to keep those feet tappin’ on the dance floor. Thursday night, celebrate Solomon Sanchez‘ birthday as he opens from Henrik Schwarz (Live) at Flash, then on Friday, kick off your evening at Sunset & Chill VIII before heading to the warehouse for SEQUENCE.887_Developer & Mary Yuzovskaya. Saturday night, celebrate 3 years of LENG with Martyn & Djrum, or for the very best in quality house music, head to Baltimore to celebrate 15 years of Deep Sugar with Ultra Naté, Lisa Moody, Donna Edwards, The Elders and all the usual Deep Sugar suspects. Miss you guys! Sunday, all roads lead to Eighteenth Street Lounge for Sam the Man Burns’ weekly residency and Sundays Rooftop with Detroit’s finest Norm Talley and Benoit. Can’t wait to hear Norm throw down!
