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

Featured

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!

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.

DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House and Techno Events in Washington DC Memorial Day Weekend 2019

Memorial Day Weekend is here again, the weekend where many of the DC heads skip town for Detroit for Movement Festival and all the associated shenanigans, me and Katrina included. if you’re headed to Detroit, hopefully I’ll see you around. Just remember, it’s DC tradition to be there front and center for Eddie C‘s sunrise set at OK Cool! at TV Lounge. Hope to see you all there!

If you’re sticking around, there’s lots of good stuff to choose from to keep you grooving. With all the big headliners booked elsewhere for the weekend, the holiday weekend provides a great opportunity for locals to take over our favorite clubs, so I highly recommend Friday night at U Street Music Hall with Strikestone!, Hot Coffee, Samantha Francesca and Kundalini on Friday, then Resident Nights vs. DMV Deep at Flash on Saturday with Markinthedark, Jacq Jill, Saad Ashraf and Kundalini.

Sunday night sees Jimmy Valentine’s celebrating its 12 year anniversary with a long list of local favorites. Always a family affair at Jimmy’s!

See below for the full list of events over the holiday weekend, Thursday through Sunday, and don’t forget, Facebook users can click the link at the top of each section to see the full list of event pages. There may or may not be a post next week, depending on what state I’m in after going through the Detroit blender. We’ll see what happens 🙂
