DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House and Techno Events in Washington DC June 27 to June 30

Fun times at Late Night Mischief on Saturday! I haven’t dance that much since Rick Wilhite kicked my ass in Detroit a few weeks back. DJ Nav set the vibe just right with a quality early set, then Aakmael delivered the goods with a solid 4 hour set of proper house music, with our very own Katrina Mir taking things up a notch keeping us grooving until sunrise with a seriously banging set. Always a good time with at Late Night Mischief! Huge thanks to the Sticky Fingers Collective & Team Zapata for inviting Katrina Mir to play, and for being such amazing hosts. Can’t wait until the next one.

You can catch Katrina Mir alongside me, Andy Grant and Ramirez on Episode #51 of the DC House Grooves Show on Underground Quality Radio this Friday June 28 at 10pm ET. Tune in for another quality show featuring quality underground house music served up fresh from the wax. We’ll be putting the brand new Technics 1200 Mk7 turntables through their paces for the first time on Saturdays show. Can’t wait to take them for a spin!

Another quality line up of events this weekend in and around the District. Playlist with Jubilee and Ramirez is the best way to kick off your weekend with quality house music on the patio at Eighteenth Street Lounge on Thursday, then on Friday, after listening to the DC House Grooves Show to get you in the mood, I recommend Sequence.820_Headless Horseman, where the Sequence crew will be rocking a new two room spot with an amazing line up including Headless Horseman live, Jacq Jill, Juana and Damon Bradley in the main room, and Theta Flux live, Ben Jenkins and Associate in the Isolated Paradise ambient room. Advance tickets are recommended, but tickets are available on the door with RSVP.

Plenty of great choices for Saturday night. If you’re in the U Street area, I recommend checking out Symmetrical‘s Fractal Love 3 party at El Techo, which runs from 12pm to 1.30am with an amazing line up of locals to keep you grooving all afternoon and into the night. Looks like a lot of fun!
