Busy weekend ahead! It’s that time of year again when we celebrate Pride in the nation’s capital, and again there’s an amazing selection of quality underground events celebrating Pride here in DC. I’ve included all the events on my radar in this week’s post, but if you want the best insight on underground Pride events from someone who really knows what’s what, check out Pride Underground 2017 by our queer correspondent, TNX‘s Tommy Cornelis.

You can catch me at Flash on Friday night along with my DC House Grooves partner in crime Katrina Mir, holding things down in the bar all night long. We’ve been holed up at DC House Grooves HQ for the last few weeks honing our craft, and we’re really looking forward to playing out again. Friday night at Flash is going to be one for the true house heads, with Sistrum Recordings label boss Patrice Scott headlining the main room with support from Aakmael and HOT COFFEE, and  another edition of Arts & Sciences in the Green Room with SnadTaiga. Serious business across all three floors!

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC May 11 to May 14

Fun times last weekend! Huge thanks to everyone who came out to Flash on Friday to hear me open for Navbox and Sonja Moonear, and to Flash for putting their trust in me to set the vibe for the night just right. I was expecting the usual slow pick up, but to my surprise the dance floor filled up quicker than I’ve ever seen before! I’d like to take the credit, but it was really down to people being out early to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Certainly one one of my favorite sets behind the decks at Flash, and when I was done, Navbox and Sonja Moonear really took things to the next level! On Saturday night, I headed over to Be What You Feel with Fred EverythingYouandewanReggie Dokes, with support from Hot Coffee and Team Zapata, Sadly Reggie Dokes couldn’t make it due to a family emergency, but DJ Aakmael stepped in as a worthy replacement. Vibes were thick all night, and the Prescription sound system was sounding super sweet. Another great event from the Prescription and Sticky Fingers crews! Next up for the Sticky Fingers Collective is Daytime Discotèque with Frits Wentink on May 21. $15 advanced tickets still available if you move fast!

The big news announced over the past week is the tenth anniversary of the FORWARD Festival. FORWARD Everlasting takes place between May 17 and May 21, and features a full range of diverse events celebrating electronic music and culture. You can find full information aboutFORWARD Everlasting over at the FORWARD DC Website and the FORWARD DC Facebook Page, but for easy reference I have included the full list of events below. I strongly encourage all DC House Grooves readers to make an effort to attend some (or all!) FORWARD Everlasting events. Here’s to another ten years celebrating electronic music and culture here in Washington DC!

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC February 9 to February 12

You know, when I first started publishing the DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up over two and a half years ago, one of my main motivations was frustration that DC’s talented local DJs were getting overlooked in favor of out of town talent that more often than not didn’t live up to the hype. Events featuring all local line ups were few and far between, and big names from out of town were seemingly the only way to get people through the door. l had a crazy plan that maybe I could steer people towards events featuring our pool of strong local talent, and maybe we could start to see more all local line ups. I’ve no idea if DC House Grooves has had any impact, but we’re increasingly seeing amazing, well attended events featuring only local DJs right here in DC. So much so that this week’s post is entirely dedicated to events with all local line ups. Every event in this week’s picks exclusively features talent from the local  area (well, with the exception of Saturday night’s Apert:re with Sammy Dee, Navbox & Solomon Sanchez at Flash, with Taiga & Throe in the Green Room and Acid People featuring Doktor D, Juana & Ron Jackson in the Flash Bar, where, with a ratio of locals to out-of-town talent of 1:7, I’ll make an exception).  The high point this weekend without a doubt is Friday night at Flash, which sees locals taking over all three floors, with hometown heroes Beautiful Swimmers headlining the main room with support from Chris Burns and Sleepy G, while in the Green Room Sarah Myers and Friends takes over, with Mazi R and Jus Nowhere joining Sarah to bring the vibes open to close. Down in the bar, Katrina Mir and Andy Grant (talking about myself in the third person again!) hold things down for another edition of Body Werk. A serious all local line up across all three levels at Flash… not to be missed! Advanced tickets are only $8 on Ticketfly… a complete bargain for this line up.

Speaking of talented locals, DC label 1432R Recordings has a new compilation out on Bandcamp. Extended Family Compilation 001 features original tracks from the 1432R crew and their circle of collaborators, including contributions from Beautiful Swimmers’ Max D and local favorites Jackson Ryland and Djoser. You can name your price for the album, and best of all, 100% of the proceeds will benefit the ACLU, so not only do you get a compilation of quality music from a local label, you get to support a cause that more than ever needs our support. Head over to 1432R’s Bandcamp page now and buy Extended Family Compilation 01. There’s 13 tracks, so I suggest a donation of at least $13. Don’t be a cheap skate!

Extended Family Compilation 01 on Bandcamp

Symmetrical, Mont.age 2 Year Anniversary Happy Hour with Sam “The Man” Burns, Dromme & Tony Smooth, the latest edition of Regrets Only featuring Chris Nitti and Throe at Ten Tigers Parlour and Playlist with Jubilee and Ramirez at ESL. Friday night, the aforementioned all locals extravaganza at Flash featuring Beautiful SwimmersChris BurnsSleepy GSarah MyersMazi RJus NowhereKatrina Mir and yours truly, Andy Grant gets my vote, but if you’re looking for something more intimate with quality music and people, check out Petworth Funk with Trev-ski and special guests Joe L. and Fulano at The Looking Glass Lounge in Petworth, or Natural Resources with Philco, Samantha Francesca and Pacific Fur Company at Dr. Clock’s Nowhere Bar. Some serious options on Saturday night! At Flash, Berlin’s Sammy Dee headlines (yeah, I know, not local. I make the rules, I get to break the rules!) with support from local dream team Navbox and Solomon Sanchez. In the Green Room, Taiga Throe bring the heat all night long, while in the bar, Doktor DJuana and Ron Jackson celebrate all things 303 at another edition of Acid People. Down the street at U Street Music HallDeep Sugar brings the magic of The Paradox to DC, with Baltimore’s very own superstar Ultra Naté and Lisa Moody throwing down the soulful house grooves with support from Katie Elder. Mark my words: Deep Sugar U Street Music Hall = guaranteed magical vibes all night long. Over at  Jimmy Valentine‘s, Winter Warmers  promises quality music all night long in everyone’s favorite dive bar, with some of the longest serving DJs in DC, DJ Double 07Tim Jackson  and Anish. A great choice if you want to stay away from the U Street madness! On Sunday, as always, ESL is your one stop shop, with another quality, all local line up featuring Sam “The Man” Burns, Smudge, Martín Miguel, Mr. Bonkerz & Heights. The perfect place to close out your weekend!

OK… here’s my full list of all-local picks for the weekend, after which you’ll find all the rest of the events for this weekend, Thursday through Sunday.
