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

OK, on to more positive things. Another great line up of events here in Washington DC this weekend, and as always, you find all the flyers below, Thursday through Sunday. The DC House Grooves crew will be at it again this weekend on Underground Quality Radio with another edition of the DC House Grooves Show. The show kicks off at 10pm ET on Saturday, tune in on the Underground Quality Live YouTube channel, or the Underground Quality website.
Other than that, a quiet weekend for me and Katrina Mir. No gigs lined up for the foreseeable future, but we’re keen to get out there, so please get in touch if you’d to add some DC House Grooves to your party. You know it makes sense!
