DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House and Techno Events in Washington DC November 14 to November 17

Featured

Apologies to anyone who checked DC House Grooves last week for your weekend listings. Had too much on my plate last week, so took a week off. Back again this week, feeling refreshed after an amazing time dancing to Theo Parrish at Darkroom in Baltimore last Saturday. It was amazing to see all the heads out in force to hear a true master throwing down, open to close. It really was as good as it gets! Kudos to Feroun and the rest of the Darkroom crew for curating another amazing event.

Before I get into this week’s listings, a quick heads up: next Saturday, November 23, Flash is hosting another edition of Resident Nights, where locals take over all three floors of the club. On the club level, our very own Katrina Mir will be throwing down an all vinyl set alongside Peter Kaufmann and Kaylasoul, while in the Green Room, Sam Burns brings the heat with support from Just Chad and Kochi and Jandro hold things down in the bar. Looking forward to another amazing night at Flash, and I hope to see you all there. Support your locals!

Before I get into the listings for this weekend, major thanks to everyone who came out to Flash last Friday and celebrated Katrina Mir‘s birthday with us! What an incredible night in the Green Room! I don’t think we’ve had a better night a Flash in all the years we’ve been played there. Thanks also to the whole team at Flash, to the management for booking us, and to all the bar and security staff for making sure everything went smoothly. We can’t wait to do it again! For those who couldn’t make it, we recorded the whole night, five hours of pure vibe served up fresh from the wax by me, Andy Grant, Ramirez and Katrina Mir.

If you don’t feel like making the trip out into the woods for The Get Down this weekend, there’s plenty of amazing events closer to home to keep you grooving through the weekend.
