DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House and Techno Events in Washington DC Thursday August 15 to Sunday August 18

Big love to everyone who joined us at El Techo for the DC House Grooves 5 Year Anniversary celebration last Friday, and to everyone who joined us on the dance floor at the warehouse for an epic after hours session. I, for one, really needed that! Eternally grateful to the team at El Techo and to Team Zapata and the Sticky Fingers Collective for hosting us. We really appreciate it!

This Saturday, we’ve got a very special edition of the DC House Grooves Show on Underground Quality Radio, with special guest DJ Aakmael joining me, Ramirez and Katrina Mir in the DC House Grooves studio. We can’t wait to hear Aakmael doing his thing at DC House Grooves HQ. It’s going to get deep! The needle drops at 10pm ET on Saturday August 17. Head over to the Underground Quality Live YouTube channel and set a reminder. You won’t want to miss this one!

DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House and Techno Events in Washington DC Thursday August 8 to Sunday August 11

OK, so remember a few weeks back I posted about the 5 year anniversary of DC House Grooves Top Picks? Well, we’re finally getting around to celebrating! Join me, Andy Grant, Ramirez, Katrina Mir and Kochi this Friday at El Techo for the DC House Grooves 5 Year Anniversary celebration, the perfect way to get your Friday night off to a great start. If you’re familiar with El Techo, then you know the drill. Quality eats with serious beats are the order of the day, all washed down with some amazing summer cocktails. Even better, they now accept Rooam for your tab, so you can get crazy and worry about the bill later 😉 As always, the DC House Grooves crew will serving up the finest underground house music fresh from the wax, so you can get warmed up for a night on the dance floor. I hope you can join us!

For a taste of what to expect at our celebration on Friday, check out Episode #053 of the DC House Grooves Show on Underground Quality Radio with me, Ramirez and Katrina Mir. Mark your calendars and make sure you tune in to Episode #054 on Saturday August 17 at 10pm ET, when our special guest will be DJ Aakmael. Can’t wait to host Aakmael in the DC House Grooves studio. It’s going to be one serious session!

Before I get into this week’s listings, a quick mention of a forthcoming event from Grand Ancestor, Roam, Sequence, Sticky Fingers Collective, Sleaze, Team Zapata and TNX billed as DC24. On September 20th and 21st, the above mentioned crews are getting together for an epic 24 hour event featuring a killer line up of local talent, a warehouse party overnight with a day party on the Saturday, kicking off at 10pm, and keeping the grooves going until 10pm the next day. Great to see all the crews getting together for such an epic event! Advanced tickets are available now, and you can see the full line up below. Hopefully it will be an huge success and DC House Grooves will be invited to join in the fun for the next DC24 😉

Rewinding back to this weekend, and I’m excited to be back at everyone’s favorite dive bar Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club for Limited Edition 005: The Truth. Looking forward to throwing down the underground wax with DJ Stereophonik open to close. No cover, so if you’re down for some great tunes delivered over a Martin Audio sound system, reasonably priced drinks and amazing company, join us at Jimmys and let’s get emotional.

Below you’ll find galleries for events at Flash and Eighteenth Street Lounge over the weekend, then flyers images for all the best underground house and techno events in Washington DC, Thursday through Sunday. I’ll leave it up to you to make your own decisions on what’s worth your time. So many quality events, it’s hard to choose! Whatever you end up doing, though, if you’re up for a dance on Sunday, head to Eighteenth Street Lounge for Sam Burns‘ weekly residency and the closing event of 10 Years of Deep Secrets with Joaquin “Joe” Claussell. Unlike the usual Sunday events on the patio, advance tickets are required for this one, so if you plan on going, make sure you grab yours at https://www.residentadvisor.net/events/1278992.

One last thing before this week’s Top Picks, the recording of DC House Grooves Show Episode #052 with me, Andy Grant, Ramirez and Katrina Mir. Check it out, and if you like what you hear, tune into our next show live on Saturday August 3 at 10pm ET. Also, we did a full track list for this one, which you can find over on SoundCloud. Some Underground Quality promo action on this one. Not to be missed!

Ok here are the event listings for this week. Hope to see you at Jimmy’s on Friday! Have an amazing weekend, and check back next week with info on all the best underground house and techno events in and around Washington DC, Thursday through Sunday.
