DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC March 28 to March 31

Spring is finally here, looks like the weather’s gonna be warming up this weekend, and things are really starting to heat up out there on the dance floor here in Washington DC. This week sees the welcome return of Daytime Discothèque, which celebrates its third anniversary on Sunday with a fantastic line up including Tilman (fine records ), Trev-Ski ( Live Set ), Juan Zapata, Samantha Francesca, Hot Coffee & Tom Fee. I’m all about that live set from a man like Trev-ski. Can’t wait! It’s a BYOB joint, and they’ll be firing up the grill, so it’s bring your own meats and veggies, too. A proper family fair all round. Needle drops around 1pm, so if you’re up for some quality Sunday afternoon vibes, grab your ticket now. No door sales, so don’t sleep! Hopefully lots more to come from the Daytime Discothèque crew over the summer; looking forward to the kick off this Sunday.

So what else is happening this weekend in the District? Quite a bit, as it happens. See below for the full list of flyers for all the best underground house and techno events in and around DC, Thursday through Sunday, and click the section headings to see a list of the event pages over on Facebook. Thursday night in particular looks nuts, with Playlist at ESL, Black Coffee with Neko Berg at U Street Music Hall, Groove Machine live electronic showcase at Studio Ga Ga and Loco Dice at Flash. Friday, Article 003 at Backbar looks like a good time, then on Saturday check out head to Jimmy Valentine’s with a bouquet or two of flowers for Spring is for Flowers with Chadwick, Sid Waters and Sarah Myers, or maybe Ten Tigers Parlour for Buster, Juan Zapata & DJ Lantern.

Alternatively, The Elders will be making a long overdue return to DC to spin at Allegory, or you could head to El Techno to catch the DMV Deep crew. There’s also another incredible line up at Flash, and another edition of Werk Ethic with Ken Lazee and Nick Garcia at U Street Music Hall. All quality choices! Sunday is all about Daytime Discothèque, but if dreamy desert vibes are your jam, season 3 of Sunday Love keeps rolling at Flash with Sunday Love’s Road to Catharsis featuring Concret, Symphonic, Heather Femia and Kryptik. This week, they’ll also be opening up the club level for Love Bazaar, and indoor marketplace featuring all sorts of wonders you won’t want to miss. Feels like the start of something special! See flyer below for details.

Sunday night, as it tradition, all roads lead to Eighteenth Street Lounge for Sam Burns weekly residency and another edition of Sundays Rooftop with Detroit’s Daniel Andres and Benoit out on the patio. Always the best way to wrap up your weekend on the dance floor. Anyway, that’s everything for this week. Don’t forget to tune in to the DC House Grooves Show on Saturday night, and I’ll see you at the Daytime Disco on Sunday.

Very little time this week, so I’ll need to make this quick. Before I get in to this week’s happenings, I want to give a quick mention to a worthy fundraiser that I hope you can contribute a few bucks towards. Andrew Prince aka DJ Amp, a major contributor to the electronic music community in Baltimore and DC, had around $20k’s worth of sound gear stolen from him last week from a venue in Baltimore. Andrew provided sound for our Beats Maneuver events at Public Bar last summer, and it was always a pleasure working with him. Andrew is gives so much to the community, supporting many different events and crews, and it really isn’t right that this happened to him. That equipment is his livelihood, and it really sucks that someone would do this. It is a testament to the local music community that a fundraiser set up to replace the equipment has raised nearly $10k in less than a week, but there is still a ways to go. if you can spare even a few bucks, please consider donating. Andrew is good people, and it’s not right that this should happen to him. A few bucks from everyone will help make things right.

Donate to the Fundraiser for Andrew Prince

Also, here is a list of the equipment that was stolen. If you hear of anyone trying to sell this gear, get in touch.

DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC November 29 to December 2

No time to pull together a proper post this week, just time for a flyer dump. See below for promo images for all the best events in Washington DC this weekend, Thursday through Sunday, and for those of you on Facebook, you can click the link at the top of each section to see the list of Top Picks with event links.

My dancing shoes are still firmly on the shelf due to my recent injury, so I’ll be taking it easy weekend. Still hoping to make it up to Baltimore on Saturday to catch my brother from another mother DJ Jus-Ed (Underground Qualityplaying open to close at Darkroom in Baltimore for the Kowli and  Sticky Fingers crews. It’s gonna be hard to resist the temptation to dance with Jus-Ed at the controls, but I’ll do my best. If you haven’t yet caught Ed working his magic on the dance floor, I highly recommend this one. Real house music to move your soul. Get there at the start and don’t stop dancing till the lights come on. I promise you, this will be a dance floor journey to remember. Advance tickets are just $20, and its BYOB, so you can bring whatever refreshments you like. Limited space on the dance floor, so don’t sleep on this one!

Been slacking off on the mixes recently, too. To make up for it, how about the recording of me, Ramirez Katrina Mir going B2B2B working the Grand Ancestor sound system opening up for Turtle Bugg at Late Night Maneuvers here in Washington DC on November 2? Two hours and 20 minutes of quality underground grooves served up fresh from the wax.

 

Here are this week’s DC House Grooves Top Picks. The flyers should have all the info you need, but Facebook users can click the title for each day to see the list of event pages. All quality events, listed in no particular order. For those of you not on Facebook, Google is your friend. I might just stick to this format moving forward. Let me know what you think. I’ll be back next week with more of the same, so if you’re looking for info on all the best underground house events in Washington DC, you know where to find it!
