DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House and Techno Events in Washington DC Labor Day Weekend Thursday August 29 to Monday September 2

Big thanks to everyone who came out to Wild Days at Eaton Hotel to groove with me and Katrina last Friday night, and thanks to the team at Eaton for booking us. For those who couldn’t make it, here’s the full recording of the night. Over four house of sublime house and disco bliss served up fresh from the wax.

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 🙂
