Not to be missed!
This weekend, we’ve got a DC House Grooves double header at Flash, with me, Andy Grant, warming up the club level for local hero Micfreak and Detroit legend Mike Huckaby, and with Collette & Pete Moss in the Green Room and the District Drop Inn crew in the bar, it’s sure to be an amazing night of music.

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!
Back to this weekend, and you can catch me, Andy Grant, and Katrina Mir throwing down some laid back jams to socialize to at everyone’s favorite speakeasy Allegory at Eaton this Friday, open to close. Excited to explore the deeper reaches of our USBs! Wherever you’re heading on Friday night, stop by for a drink with us at Allegory. No cover!
Then on Saturday night, we’re at it again with Episode #060 of the DC House Grooves Show on Underground Quality Radio with special guest Baronhawk Poitier (TNX), Andy Grant, Katrina Mir and Ramirez. We’ve been wanting to get Baronhawk on the show for some time, and I can’t wait to hear what he’s got lined up. Tune in from 10pm ET this Saturday!

Then on Sunday, all roads lead to Eighteenth Street Lounge for Sam Burns‘ weekly residency and Sundays Rooftop with Detroit’s Daniel Andres and Benoit. Daniel always delivers the goods, so don’t sleep on this one! No cover, so definitely the best value option for Sunday grooving!
