DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House and Techno Events in Washington DC October 3 to October 6

Just about recovered from Blisspop Disco Fest last week! It was amazing to warm up the floor for Sam Burns, Cerrone, Jellybean Benitez, DJ Boring and Honey Sound System. Major thanks to everyone at U Street Music Hall for inviting me to play. It was a really well run event, and it was great to see so many people of all ages getting down to some proper disco grooves. I, for one, really enjoyed digging deep in my collection for disco vibes and leaving the house music at home for once!

This weekend, we’re back with episode #057 of the DC House Grooves Show on Underground Quality Radio with me, Andy Grant, Ramirez and Katrina Mir. This time around, we’re switching up the format a bit. Rather than the usual B2B2B, one of us will headline the show, with the support from the other two. For episode #057, Katrina Mir is getting the spotlight, headlining the show after a warmup from me and Ramirez. We’re excited to explore this new format, and looking forward to hearing what each of us brings to the table when given the chance to really throw down! Tune in from 10pm ET this Saturday using the links below.

Before this week’s listings, another quick reminder about The Get Down Halloween Adventure, taking place deep in the woods October 25 to 27. Featuring an amazing local line up from a whole bunch of different crews on two stages, a haunted house, costume contest and overnight camping, tickets are only $30. That’s right, only $30 for a full weekend of music, including camping. Best of all, Andy Grant, Katrina Mir, Ramirez and Kochi are all on the line up, as well as friends of the family Damon Bradley, Heather Femia, Symmetrical and many more. So if you’re up for a fun weekend that’s a little bit different with no bullshit and no pretensions, join us out in the woods October 25 to 27 for The Get Down – A Halloween Adventure.

DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House and Techno Events in Washington DC May 2 to May 5

Huge thanks to everyone who came out last Friday to kick off my birthday celebrations with me and Katrina Mir at Jimmy Valentine’s. I really appreciate you all making the effort! I, for one, had an amazing time playing records and shuffling around the dance floor 🙂 We’ll be celebrating my birthday in earnest this Thursday night May 2, when I’ll be joining Jubilee and Ramirez behind the decks at Playlist at Eighteenth Street Lounge. Packing some amazing tunes, it’s going to be a beautiful evening, so let’s have some fun on the patio! Hoping to see some DC House Grooves readers on the dance floor.

Just a quick post this week, as I need to get all my music organized for tomorrow. Lots of great stuff happening this week at all the usual spots, Eddie C at Eighteenth Street Lounge on Saturday being the highlight, plus a whole load of cool happenings around Catharsis on the Mall. If you’re up for something different, head over to the National Mall and check it out. I’m not particularly in the know about Catharsis, but between Hearts Collective at the Asgard Dome and Sunset and Chill at Catharsis on the Mall amongst other things, looks like there’s plenty to keep you grooving.

Before I get to this week’s listings, here’s a great little slice of after hours acid, techno, house & breaks from our very own Katrina Mir. Something to listen to as you plan your weekend dance floor strategy.
