DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House & Electronic Music Events in Washington DC Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend November 22 to November 26

The thing about Thanksgiving every year is I have to publish my Top Picks a day early, which completely messes with my routine. Despite a mad scramble, I’ve just about managed to pull something together in time for the earlier deadline, and in this fine post right here you’ll find my Top Picks for Thanksgiving Weekend, including all the pre-Thanksgiving parties Wednesday night.¬† Katrina Mir and I are taking things easy over the holidays, but you can catch us on another edition of the¬†DC House Grooves Show on¬†Underground Quality Radio¬†this Saturday night alongside the might¬†Ramirez. As always, we’ll be streaming video a multi-camera feed live from the¬†Rave Basement¬†here in Washington DC on the¬†Underground Quality Live¬†YouTube channel. If you’ve not checked out our show before, here’s the video of our last show to whet your appetite. Deep vibes guaranteed.

Here are the links for¬† Saturday’s show, which kicks off at 10pm ET:

Out and about, I’d recommend kicking off the weekend tomorrow night at¬†Give Thanks with¬†Juan Zapata,¬†Samantha Francesca and¬†Itzjack at¬†Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club. Lots of great events to choose from on Wednesday, but¬†Jimmy‘s is your best bet for quality underground vibes to get Thanksgiving started off right.

Usually on Thanksgiving itself there aren’t any decent events to give you an excuse to get out of the house and avoid those post-Turkey blues, but this year you can head to¬†Public Bar for¬†Saeed Younan‘s¬†Sintimate Rooftop Sessions¬†with¬†Technasia,¬†Saeed Younan and¬†Alex Eljaiek. Rumor has it, they’ve got a sexy new disco ball lighting up the rooftop, so get dressed up in your best disco threads and get ready to throw some shapes. Advanced tickets are just $10.

Firiday night, head to¬†Flash for the amazing¬†Jan Krueger¬†with support from¬†N/UM & Solomon¬†Sanchez, with¬†Philip Goyette in the Green Room and Samantha Francesca and DSD in the Flash Bar. One of my favorite DC clubbing memories was hearing a mental set from¬†Jan Krueger¬†at¬†Jimmy Valentine’s, as paint chips rained down from the ceiling onto the turntables. Good times. I can only imagine what¬†Jan is going to do with¬† Flash‘s¬† amazing¬†Funktion One¬†system.

Saturday night, after listening to the¬†DC House Grooves Show,¬†head back to¬†Jimmy Valentine’s for the first edition of¬†Super Tuff!¬†with Mart√≠n Miguel, Hot Coffee b2b DSD¬† &¬†M. Vaughan. If you haven’t checked out the first release on¬†M. Vaughan‘s¬†Super Tuff!¬† label, I can highly recommend it, with great tracks from¬†Jesse Bru,¬†DJ Aakmael,¬†M. Vaughan¬†and¬†Moony Me, and with the super solid¬†Super Tuff 002¬†just released, things are looking bright!¬†Definitely an exciting label to keep an eye on, and I expect¬†Super Tuff¬† at¬† Jimmy’s¬†to deliver the goods. Do it!
