DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House and Techno Events in Washington DC June 13 to June 16

Another big weekend here in the District, and DC House Grooves has everything you need to plan your weekend on the dance floor. It’s an especially big weekend for us, as we’re celebrating the 50th episode of the DC House Grooves Show on Berlin’s Underground Quality Radio. We’ve been broadcasting every other Saturday for nearly two years now, and with each show, the vibe’s been getting stronger. For episode #50, we’ve put together something a little bit special. Joining me, Ramirez and Katrina Mir in the studio is none other than DC legend Sam “The Man” Burns (Underground Soul Solution, Eighteenth Street Lounge), along with the amazingly talented Candice Mills on live vocals. We’re honored to have two powerhouse local talents joining us to help us celebrate a very special occasion. But wait, there’s more! We’ll be giving away two FREE copies of the latest release on Underground Quality, the Jus-Me EP by DJ Jus-Ed which were dropped off at the studio when the man himself visited a couple of weeks ago.

So what about this weekend? A major feature here in Washington DC this weekend is the 6 year anniversary of Flash nightclub, and to celebrate, they’ve put together yet another epic line up of world class talent, international and local, and each night they’ll be kicking off the evening with a complimentary glass of champagne. I can’t believe it has been six years since Flash opened its doors. I, for one, have so many great memories at the club, both on the dance floor and behind the decks. Check the flyers below for the full line up, Thursday through Sunday. Each night looks amazing, like a weekend music festival, all under one roof.

Here we go with another weekly post featuring all the best events in Washington DC. Nearly five years of weekly posts, and we’re still going strong! DC House Grooves coming in hot at Eighteenth Street Lounge on Thursday, with Katrina Mir joining Jubilee & Ramirez behind the decks for Playlist. With a fresh delivery of wax in her record bag, she’s not planning on taking any prisoners, so do yourself a favor and head to ESL at 10pm to catch one of DC’s finest up and coming talents doing what she does best. Always a revelation when Katrina Mir gets behind the decks.

Friday night, I recommend checking out Club Cuttlefish at Ten Tigers Parlour with DC Voices, Control Freq and DJ Freeze, or perhaps Minesies with Che & Baronhawk at Jimmy Valentine’s. Flash also looks on point, with Cap, N/UM and Jus Nowhere in the main room, J Swink and Charles D in the Green Room and Philco & Tommy Cornelis in the Flash Bar.

Saturday night, kick off your evening at Flash to catch the mighty XDB making his Flash debut alongside Galcher Lustwerk and Navbox. In the Green Room, Benoit & Luke hold things down open to close, with Steve Seagull, Throe and Mike Harvey in the bar.

Sunday afternoon, Sunday Love at Flash and District Inferno with Sam Burns at El Techo are both worth checking out, then on Sunday night, all roads lead to Eighteenth Street Lounge for ESL Sunday with Sam Burns’ Underground Soul Solution and Good Buddies with Samantha Francesca and Philco.
