For some quality DC House Grooves action this weekend, head over to Flash on Friday, where Katrina Mir joins DJ Meegs behind the decks open to close in the Flash Bar for another edition of Cider House Mules. Let me tell you, these ladies mean business, so wear comfortable shoes and get ready to sweat! And they’re just part of another huge Friday night line up at Flash, including Dorian Paic, Maayan Nidam, Throe, Taiga, Julie Marghilano & Miss Jools. There’s no cover for the bar, and upstairs is free with RSVP before 11pm.
On Saturday night, tune in to the next installment of the DC House Grooves Show on Jus-Ed‘s Underground Quality Radio featuring myself, Ramirez and Katrina Mir. We’ll be keeping things deep from 10pm ET. Tune in to the audio stream, or check Facebook for the video feed. The perfect pre-game sound track for your Saturday night out!
