DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up July 31 – August 3

We didn’t make it out at all in DC last weekend as we’re off on our summer vacation, but we heard reports of some pretty special parties. The second edition of Elev8 at Lima was a great success, the Deep Secrets 5th birthday celebrations looked amazing, and by the sounds of it there were some crazy times at Sunglass Sundays. We had to make do with Subculture at the legendary Sub Club in Glasgow on Saturday, which was nothing short of spectacular. Definitely worth the trip if you find yourself in Scotland.

Since we’re still out on vacation, this week we’re bringing you an abbreviated edition of the weekly round up, without the usual commentary and opinion. If we were in town, though, we would be checking out Seth Troxler supported by Jubilee and Boss Ross at U Street Music Hall on Thursday, then on Friday we would be back at U Hall for Ejeca supported by Urulu and Jus Nowhere, and if the crowds got too much we would head over to Eighteenth Street Lounge. On Saturday, we’d be checking out the MidCity Dog Days sidewalk sale on 14th Street in the afternoon, where  Navbox will be spinning outside SOM Records from 3pm to 4pm. Then in the evening, we would be stopping by Eighteenth Street Lounge before heading over to check  out the new night Forecast at Backbar with DJ Lisa Frank, Erictronica, Jett Chandon and Atticus, before ending our night at Elev8 at Lima Lounge, where The Elders (Deep Sugar) are joining Earic Patten and Darius Twin behind the decks. Then on Sunday we’d be starting our afternoon on the Boomerang Pirate Ship for the Soundwaves Boat Party with disCerN and Signal Flow, then after the boat docks we would be heading up to The House that U Built on the Dirty Bar rooftop with All Good Funk Alliance, DJ Lisa Frank, Meegs, Sinz and Vanniety Kills, before finishing up our night at Elektrik Eventz‘ new night Sunday Confessions at The Gryphon, with Baronhawk Poitier and DJ Octane. Also worth a look on Sunday afternoon is the 2014 DJ Music Fest in Rock Creek Park with Sam Burns.

So here’s what’s on in DC this the weekend of July 31 to August 3. Enjoy, and we’ll be back with the regular round up next week.
