DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: Halloween Weekend 2016 October 27 to October 30

Unless you’re new to DC, you’ll know that we take our Halloween events very seriously. Many of you will already have your Halloween costumes picked out and advanced tickets in the bag, but in case you haven’t, DC House Grooves is here to help! Well, we can’t help you with your Halloween outfit, but we can help you out with a summary of all the best underground house and electronic music events in and around DC over Halloween weekend, along with advanced ticket links, where available. Now, if you’re planning on attending ROAM & TNX‘s event HOWL with Berlin techno duo Discodromo, DJ Lisa Frank, TNXDansman B2B ThroeFLESH with Whomadewho, DJ Lisa Frank, Julius Jetson, PHILCO, Maurice Fulton, Benoit Benoit, HOT COFFEE, Samantha Francesca, Jus Nowhere, Mazi R & Taiga at FlashThe Annual Jimmy Valentine’s Halloween Bash with Sam “The Man” Burns, Chris Nitti, Juan Zapata, Joe L and Jandro or Jak-o-Lantern Halloween on the Roof with DeWalta, Jubilee, Feroun and Navbox at Flash, I recommend you stop what you are doing NOW and go and buy your tickets. These events are expected to sell out, and you don’t want to be left outside in the cold, all dressed up with nowhere to go. Indeed, both HOWL and FLESH at Flash are on their final release tickets, and I’ve heard from reliable sources that Jimmy Valentine’s Halloween Bash and Jak-o-Lantern Halloween on the Roof at Flash are selling fast, too. Make sure you check out Jimmy V’s all you can drink option… a great choice if you’re planning on celebrating to the max! Here are the advanced ticket links:

Advanced tickets for HOWL

Advanced tickets for Flesh at Flash

Advanced tickets for Jimmy Valentine’s Halloween Bash

Advanced tickets for Jak-o-Lantern Halloween on the Roof at Flash

As far as the rest of the events this week are concerned, advanced tickets are strongly recommended where available, but you should be OK just showing up on the night.

Speaking of the HOWL party on Friday, here’s a promo mix put together by  Dansman  and  Throe in anticipation of Friday’s event. A solid mix of underground sounds to get you in the mood!

 

You can catch me DJing at two events over Halloween weekend: Thursday night I’m the special guest at Preview Rooftop Happy Hour at Flash, where I’ll be playing an all vinyl set alongside residents Christauff and Jon_MFDdredBang will also be on hand to serve up some wax. Really looking forward to spinning records old and new in Flash‘s amazing rooftop bar, and with $3 PBR & Yeunglings, $4 Corona & Heineken and $5 DC Braus, rail drinks and wine from 6pm to 9pm, and Nathan’s Hot Dogs and Roasted Pepper Pesto Paninis on Torta Bread available for purchase, we’ve got everything you need to bridge the gap between work and your Thursday night out. Join us in the rooftop bar at Flash from 6pm for quality music, great food and cheap drinks!

Preview Rooftop Happy Hour with Andy Grant (Vinyl Night) at Flash

Then on Sunday night, I’ll be joining homies  HOT COFFEEBenoit Benoit Raffi behind the decks for Sundays Rooftop: Halloween Edition at Eighteenth Street Lounge. It’s going to be another amazing Sunday night at ESL, with the finest deep house at Sundays Rooftop on the patio, the very best in soulful house from Sam “The Man” Burns and special guest Terry Thompson in the Gold Room and funk, soul and disco classics from  The Metaphysical in the main room. The perfect way to wrap up your Halloween weekend!

Well that’s pretty much all I’ve got time for tonight. Need to get busy picking out records for Preview and Sundays Rooftop! Other than the events mentioned above, there’s plenty more to choose from this weekend. Check my picks below for all the events I recommend this weekend. UK Garage / Bass heads are spoiled for choice tomorrow night with DJ EZ at U Street Music Hall and Goth-Trad and Joe Nice at Eden Lounge, and for those of a techno persuasion, Void Archive: Devil’s Nacht with Boss Ross, Damon Bradley, Left One Aka Rosemary Arp & Ron Jackson at Jimmy Valentine’s and Silicon Based Lifeform: Haunted House and Terrifying Techno with Darius Twin, William Scott and Doktor D at Dr. Clock’s Nowhere Bar on Friday are both strong choices, as is BaltoTroit with Ben Jenkins, Boss Ross, Steve Kirn and Itzjack at Dr. Clock’s Nowhere Bar on Saturday night. For the house heads, Playlist featuring Jubilee & Ramirez is always worth a look on Thursday, and don’t sleep on City Sound Masquerade Halloween Party with Wayne ‘Big Papa’ Davis, Tony Smooth, Sam “The Man” Burns and Adrian Loving at Zeba Bar on Saturday or Sunglass Sundays V Halloween Finale featuring Purple Disco Machine at Public Bar. Oh, and Saturday night, I strongly recommend tuning in to Vinyl Purist Radio Episode 005 with Charles Martin & Rush Plus from 4pm to 6pm. It’s sure to be an amazing show filled with quality tunes, and you may just get to hear tracks off Rush Plus‘s new vinyl release RPDC002. Any radio show featuring DJs spinning vinyl gets my vote. Katrina and I hereby volunteer our services for a future edition of the show!
