Kicking off this week’s post with news of an amazing event coming up in September from Blisspop and U Street Music Hall, Blisspop Disco Fest, which features an incredible line up from across the wide disco spectrum, including Chromeo, The Black Madonna, Cerrone, Jellybean Benitez, RAC, DaM-Funk, Crazy P, Robotaki, Le Youth, DJ Boring, Session Victim, Honey Sound System, The Blackbyrds, Josey Rebelle, Eli Escobar, Deep Sugar (Wayne Davis & Lisa Moody), Sam The Man Burns and a whole host of locals, including yours truly, Andy Grant. I’m honored to be setting the mood for the event at U Street Music Hall with Cerrone, Jellybean Benitez, The Blackbyrds, DJ Boring, Honey Sound System and Eli Escobar. See below for the main Blisspop Disco Fest flyer, plus flyers for the Friday and Saturday events. More details over at Blisspop. Advance tickets go on sale Thursday July 25 at 10am ET. Don’t sleep if you want those early birds!
Rewinding back to this weekend, and I’m excited to be back at everyone’s favorite dive bar Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club for Limited Edition 005: The Truth. Looking forward to throwing down the underground wax with DJ Stereophonik open to close. No cover, so if you’re down for some great tunes delivered over a Martin Audio sound system, reasonably priced drinks and amazing company, join us at Jimmys and let’s get emotional.
Below you’ll find galleries for events at Flash and Eighteenth Street Lounge over the weekend, then flyers images for all the best underground house and techno events in Washington DC, Thursday through Sunday. I’ll leave it up to you to make your own decisions on what’s worth your time. So many quality events, it’s hard to choose! Whatever you end up doing, though, if you’re up for a dance on Sunday, head to Eighteenth Street Lounge for Sam Burns‘ weekly residency and the closing event of 10 Years of Deep Secrets with Joaquin “Joe” Claussell. Unlike the usual Sunday events on the patio, advance tickets are required for this one, so if you plan on going, make sure you grab yours at https://www.residentadvisor.net/events/1278992.
One last thing before this week’s Top Picks, the recording of DC House Grooves Show Episode #052 with me, Andy Grant, Ramirez and Katrina Mir. Check it out, and if you like what you hear, tune into our next show live on Saturday August 3 at 10pm ET. Also, we did a full track list for this one, which you can find over on SoundCloud. Some Underground Quality promo action on this one. Not to be missed!
Ok here are the event listings for this week. Hope to see you at Jimmy’s on Friday! Have an amazing weekend, and check back next week with info on all the best underground house and techno events in and around Washington DC, Thursday through Sunday.
