DC House Grooves Top Picks Halloween 2017 Edition October 26 to October 29

Welcome to a very special Halloween edition of DC House Grooves Top Picks! Why so special, you ask? Well, it’s special because I’m filing this week’s edition from Cluj-Napoca, capital of Transylvania, which I’m visiting on day job biz. The fact that I’ve even found the time to do it when I’m not even going to be around for any of these events makes it kinda special! I’ve just got a few minutes for a quick post before I head out into the Transylvanian night (a lot less exciting than it sounds), so let’s make this count. If you read last week’s DC House Grooves Top Picks Halloween Preview 2017, then you already know about all the good stuff and have no doubt already bought your tickets, but this post right here also includes full details of all the other good stuff happening over Halloween weekend. Sadly, the planned Church of Freaks party on Friday night has been canceled due to events outside of the promoter’s control, but there’s still plenty more events to choose from to get your freak on this weekend. On Friday, I recommend checking out Foundation Fridays at Flash, then sticking around for Detroit Swindle with Martín Miguel, with The Ghost in the Green Room and Silicon Based Lifeform featuring Discwoman‘s Juana, Ron Jackson, Doctor D & Darius Twin in the Flash Bar. For afters, head to Nomads Only DC‘s warehouse event featuring Maxi Stores, Navbox, Edo & Taiga. Early bird tix are still available for just $10 if you move fast.

Also on Friday, for all you heads needing your Deep Sugar fix after last week’s Haunted Beach House event, there’s a Deep Sugar pop up after hours at Factory 17 in Baltimore on Friday with the girl squad Ultra Naté Lisa Moody. You know it makes sense!

RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/130375854387122/

Saturday night, my Top Pick for a freaky fun time is to head to Jimmy Valentine’s Annual Halloween Bash with Kochi, DJ Ramirez, Lyssa, Katrina Mir, Tim Jackson & Jandro at Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club. This annual costume mandatory party is always a crazy night… just make sure you’ve got your costume sorted! Advanced tickets are just $15, or if you’re up for a boozy do, it’s just $70 for top shelf open bar all night long! Best deal in town if you’re planning on really going for it!

My last highlight for Saturday night is for those of you who can’t face the warehouse party crowds and want to get away from it all with some proper house party vibes. If that sounds like you, then seek out off the record Halloween with Luv Jam, Dj Nav & Samantha Francesca. I’d like to tell you more, but it’s, ya know, off the record. Seriously, though, Luv Jam! Nippy vibes until the sun comes up.

Sunday’s highlights include Sundays Rooftop with Detroit’s PunisherBenoit, on the patio at Eighteenth Street Lounge, while Sam Burns and Baltimore legend Teddy Douglas hold things down in the gold room, and the second edition of Saeed Younan‘s new party at Public BarSintimate Rooftop Sessions Halloween Edition with Cocodrills, Bell & J Tek Sami%Suyung at Public Bar. Both great options for closing out an incredible Halloween weekend!

Below you’ll find my full list of DC House Grooves Top Picks for Halloween weekend, along with event flyers, event links and ticket links where appropriate. Before getting into that, though, here’s the full recording from last Saturday’s Resident Nights at Flash with  Charles MartinAndy GrantAlex Eljaiek and Oliver Caine, which had to be one of the best nights I’ve ever had at Flash Huge thanks to everyone who came out, to Navid for inviting us to play, and to everyone on the team at Flash for making everything run smoothly on the night. You guys rock! Already looking forward to next time 🙂

OK, here’s all my Top Picks for the weekend, Thursday through Sunday. Time to make some tough choices! Come back next week, same time, same place, for full info on all the best underground house and electronic music events Thursday through Sunday. DC House Grooves has all the good stuff!

15% discount off advanced tickets… make sure you’re one of the lucky 15! If you caught Joe‘s six hour set in Baltimore earlier this year, you know what’s up, and you’ve probably already got your tickets. If you didn’t, then now’s the chance to make up for it!

Destination Boat Party with Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell

If you can’t make it to Joe‘s epic set on the Soundwaves boat, then head to Eighteenth Street Lounge on Sunday night, where Joe will be wrapping up Sunday night at Sundays Rooftop on the patio with DC House Grooves Show and Playlist resident Ramirez, while Sam “The Man” Burns and Smudge take care of business on the other floors. The perfect way to end an epic weekend.

ESL Sunday with Sam “The Man” Burns, Smudge, Joe Claussell & Ramirez at Eighteenth Street Lounge

That’s how to wrap up the weekend, but there’s plenty more leading up to it. I’ve listed all my  Top Picks below, Thursday through Sunday; if it’s in the list, it’s worth your time! Major highlights include the latest edition of ROAM in a new warehouse space in northeast DC. ROAM XIII features another amazing line up headlined by Dekmantel’s Call Super with local support from DC heroes Beautiful Swimmers, ROAM residents SamiDJ Lisa Frank going back to back & the debut of Control Freq (1432R’s Zemsuyung & Club Cuttlefish’s Sleepy G). If you’ve heard Control Freq‘s recent contribution to the Extended Family podcast, you’ll be eagerly anticipating this debut. I mean, Randomer mixed into Mariah Carey and making that shit work!

 

Advanced tickets are highly recommended, and at $20 are a bargain for the  ROAM experience. You’ll save yourself some money, too; price will be higher on the door.

If you’re ROAMing on Saturday, make sure you leave something in the tank for Saturday, with amazing events such as Mark Farina Sam Burns at U Street Music Hall and another edition of The NeedlExchange Residents Night at Zeba Bar. Pick of the bunch for me, though, is Nomads Only with Andrey Pushkarev, Jubilee, Tom & Taiga, bringing the vibe on the epic Grand Ancestor sound system at a warehouse location in northeast DC. Get in there early and dance through sunrise on Sunday. Early bird tickets are only $15, and there are some still available at time of writing. Grab yours now before the price goes up!

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC April 6 to April 9

Need to get through this quickly this week, as I’m off to play at Tiger Bomb at Ten Tigers Parlour tonight with Katrina Mir, and I still haven’t packed my record bag! If you’re reading this on Thursday morning, too bad, you missed it. If you’re reading this on Wednesday night, then hurry on over to Ten Tigers Parlour for quality hump day underground grooves. Tiger Bomb at Ten Tigers is the go to spot for curing those midweek blues with a spot of dance floor therapy. Check the full April line up:

Another party you need know about is Midnight Project in Baltimore with the legendary Joe Claussell performing a six hour set with support from Benoit Feroun. The last Midnight Project with Joe was the stuff of legend, culminating with the man himself joining us on the dance floor at 9am after an unbelievable musical journey. Believe me, you won’t want to miss this one! To add to the magic, Eddie C is also in Baltimore earlier that same night with support from one of my favorite locals Joe L and Sticky Fingers Collective‘s HOT COFFEE, and you can buy a combination ticket to both events for just $25. But wait…That’s not all! Use the link below to get a 15% discountDC House Grooves is always looking out for you!

One last thing before I get to this week’s listings, mark May 12 in your calendar, as that’s the date of Flash‘s recently announced mystery event Flash [OFF]. As of now, the line up is a mystery; all we know is it’s at a brand new warehouse space in the District. Flash‘s events are always pretty special, so if you know what’s good for you, you’ll grab the $20 Tickets of Trust. Flash‘s special events always feature well curated, top tier international and local talent. Don’t sleep, though! Once the line up goes public, the price goes up.

Advanced tickets to Flash [OFF]

DC House Grooves Midweek Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC Wednesday July 29

Just checking in with a quick midweek update. The big news tonight is Transit‘s Extreme House Makeover, with an great line up of local heavy hitters, featuring Rich EdwardDJ NavJoe L and Juan Zapata! That’s a huge line up for a Wednesday night in Fairfax, and if you haven’t made it out to Transit yet, this is the night to do it.

If you don’t feel like venturing out in to deepest, darkest northern VA, then Flash is your best bet. The Nü Androids crew will be staging another takeover, with Secondcity (Dirtybird) holding things down on the main floor with local support from Yomimbi, while down in the bar, the Groov Fellas crew take control open to close.

Check back tomorrow, when I may or may not have a DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up for you. In the middle of moving house right now, and I’ve got a large record collection to box up. If I get that done, I may have time to throw something together 🙂
