Thank you to everyone who came out to Capital House Music Festival on Labor Day, and major respect to DJ Tantra of Chrysis Entertainment and Chosen for all their hard work putting together such an amazing free festival. Katrina and I were proud to be part of such an amazing event, and it was life affirming seeing such an enthusiastic and real crowd getting down in the sunshine and the rain to an incredible line up of local talent. The day captured what house music is all about, and I’m glad I got the chance to play a small part in it. If you were there in Malcolm X Park on Monday, please consider making a donation to the festival fundraiser. While it is a free event, it cost a fair bit to make it happen, so every little bit helps! Capital House Music Festival will be back in 2020, and next year it will be bigger than ever!
Before I get into everything for this weekend, a quick reminder that Blisspop Disco Fest is just a few weekend away on Friday September 27 and Saturday September 28. Tickets are selling fast, so if you want to reserve your spot on the dance floor, head over to U Street Music Hall‘s website and grab yours now. Multi night passes are available if you want to bounce around between the events. I’m sure excited to be getting things warmed up at U Street Music Hall on the Saturday night for the legendary Cerrone, Jellybean Benitez, The Blackbyrds, DJ Boring, Honey Sound System and Sam “The Man” Burns. And thats just the line up for one of the events! Check out the full line up below. Serious disco bliss!
