Both quality events with solid all local line ups where you can see in the New Year with like minded heads.

Ok, I’m out of time. You’ll find my full list of Top Picks for the weekend below. Every one a winner! No Meet the Locals Podcast this week, but here’s the embed of the last DC House Grooves Show on Underground Quality Radio with me and Katrina Mir. 2 hours of quality deep grooves. Next show is on Saturday January 6.

I’m planning on taking a break from this weekly post in the New Year, but I’ll be posting the good stuff on the DC House Grooves Facebook Page. Make sure you Like us and subscribe to notifications to learn about all the events you need to know about. See you on the dance floor!

DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House & Electronic Music Events in Washington DC Christmas Weekend December 21 to December 24

The results are in, and I’m happy to announce that Andrew Strain is the winner of Round 2 of the DC House Grooves Flash free ticket giveaway for New Year’s Eve at Flash with  Archie HamiltonChez DamierEddie CM.A.N.D.Y. [Philipp Jung & Patrick Bodmer],  Matthew Dearpunisher and many more. Please check your Facebook messages for details on how to collect your prize. If you’re reading this and you’ve missed out in Round 1 and Round 2, you’ve got one more chance to win a pair of free tickets worth $120. For round 3, I’m going back to the tried and tested prize draw approach from Round 1. Just click the link below, fill out your full name and email address, and we’ll pick a winner at random on Wednesday, December 27 at 7pm. Please make sure you use the name on your ID and a real email address, as the winner will be notified by email.

I want a chance to win a pair of tickets to FLASH NYE 2018

If you’re planning on going to Flash on New Year’s Eve and don’t have your tickets already, I recommend you grab yours now rather than leave it to chance. $50 tickets are still available which is a great deal for 26 hours of serious vibes from some of the best in the business.

Lots of great parties being announced as we approach New Year’s Eve. I’ll be posting everything up on the DC House Grooves Facebook Page as I hear about them, and I’ll be including them all in a very special New Year’s Eve edition of DC House Grooves Top Picks next week. Always a good move to get your tickets well in advance for New Year’s Eve, as many events will sell out.

Still waiting on a few Meet the Locals podcasts that have been promised to me, so you’ll just have to make do with the recording from last Friday’s all vinyl WTF?! Show with me,  Kochi Katrina Mir. Five hours of quality grooves served up fresh from the wax.

 

Fairly quiet out there this weekend, what with people leaving town for the holidays and all, but there’s still some good stuff going down. If you’re into music production, I recommend heading to Headroom at Flash on Thursday to hear what local producers have been up to, then head upstairs to catch the Transit crew taking over Preview Happy Hour up in the Green Room. Later on Thursday, the patio at Eighteenth Street Lounge is the place to be for Playlist with Jubilee Ramirez.

Another amazing Friday night line up at Flash, with Halo Varga, Nu Zau & Sepp & Jubilee in the main room, Alan Nieves, Wade Hammes, Zamkov & O. Martinez in the Green Room and Hugo Zapata, Samantha Francesca & HOT COFFEE in the Flash Bar. Well worth your time. Before heading to Flash, make sure you stop by El Techo across the street for a drink and a bite to eat while Markinthedark and Sarah Myers keep things warm and toasty behind the decks.

Saturday night, we’ll be at it again on a very special festive edition of the DC House Grooves Show on Underground Quality Radio, with me, RamirezKatrina Mir. Not exactly sure what’ll be so festive about it. Maybe I’ll wear a Santa hat or something. I can guarantee quality, deep, underground vibes to either get your Saturday night off to a great start or close out your Saturday night if you’re staying in.  Out on the town in DC, the  Beautiful Swimmers‘ holiday party at Ten Tigers Parlour looks like your best bet, with our hometown heroes at the musical controls open to close.

Beautiful Swimmers All Night Long at Ten Tigers Parlour

For those who know, word has it there’s some quality afters action to be found, but it’s all hush hush and off the record. The really big news on Saturday, however, is Deep Sugar‘s Dance for Peace Holiday Party at Baltimore Sound Stage with all your Deep Sugar favorites Ultra NatéLisa MoodyWayne Davis, The Elders & a very special guest appearance by Kenny Bobien. If you’ve been missing your Deep Sugar fix, this is your chance to get down with the crew at what promises to be a memorable Christmas shindig. Don’t plan on going late, DC style; the party starts at 6pm and goes until 2am. You’ve got to be fashionably early for this one!

Deep Sugar "Dance For Peace" Christmas Party with Ultra Naté, Lisa Moody, Wayne Davis, The Elders & Kenny Bobien at Baltimore Soundstage, Baltimore

With Eighteenth Street Lounge taking Sunday off due to Christmas Eve, all roads lead to Public Bar for Christmas Eve shenanigans at Sintimate Rooftop Sessions with Joeski B2B Saeed Younan and opening sets from  Sabeel Chohan & Fred Mas.

Wherever you end up this weekend, have a very Merry Christmas, and I’ll see you back here next week for our New Year’s Eve special. See you on the dance floor!

DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House & Electronic Music Events in Washington DC November 2 to November 5

Seems like every week I write that I’ve no time to write a decent post, but this week I really mean it! Just back from Romania, heading to Berlin tonight, so I’m gonna have to make this quick. Wish I had more time to give all the cool stuff the coverage it deserves, but this week you’ll just have to make so with my Top Picks list. Having said that, please make an effort to head to Eighteenth Street Lounge on Thursday to wish the Playlist crew a very happy second anniversary. Two years of quality deep vibes on the patio at ESL from my brothers  Jubilee Ramirez. This Thursday, Kochi and Neko Narko will be joining them to celebrate, and I strongly recommend you do too!

Friday night, you’re spoiled for choice, with Derrick Carter at Flash and Eddie C at  Eighteenth Street Lounge, but the really big news on Friday is ROAM XIV, with the ROAM crew celebrating their 4 year anniversary with Detroit legend Robert Hood (Underground ResistanceFloorplan) and local legend Buster, with support from residents DJ Lisa Frank Sami. You heard that right: Robert Hood, after hours, warehouse. It has been amazing watching ROAM grow in just four years from a small house party to Washington DC’s premier warehouse event, and I can’t wait to see what the future brings. This could well be the best ROAM yet, possibly the party of the year here in DC. All the smart kids have grabbed their tix already, but third release are still up for grabs for $25. Space will be limited, so if you want to celebrate 4 years of ROAM on Friday night, plan ahead and grab your tickets now!
