Hope everyone enjoyed a safe & amazing New Year! Let this year be a continuous progression of whatever you have set out to do. There is no limit to where you’ll end up!!
We’re kicking off the first week of the year with a pretty good lineup of events. I figured I tell you about some venues worth checking out this weekend.
Starting off with Thirsty Thursday (muahahaha, I kid I kid):
My good Homie Dj Pootie & Pretty Boi Mo will be holding it down at Muse Lounge for a one time only event! Can’t stress enough the talent & progression I’ve seen in Pootie, I’ve been a fan for the quality he puts in. A night of Top 40 and some mean latin hits?? Def should check it out! 18+ event, no guestlist. Tell Pretty Boi Mo to shout me out if y’all go, lol.
717 6th Street Northwest Washington, DC 20001-3703
Any J. Rabbit, Helicopter Showdown & AK1200 fans out there?!!! Uhall is where I’ll see you at then. Steezee Promo is blessing us with a well put show at U street Music Hall Thursday, Jan. 5th. J. Rabbit IS dubstep. I can’t even imagine how live it’s going to be. I’m new to Helicopter Showdown & AK1200 but the reason I say it’s a well put show is because they all reflect on the same kind of dope bass-filled, dirty dubstep. Get tickets here
1115A U Street NW Washington, DC 20009-7520
FRIDAY NIIIGHT (just got paid):
Badfish: Tribute to Sublime at Ramshead live! Jan. 6 Now this isn’t my typical scene, but I have amazing friends who are into the ska punk scene & these folks are highly recommended! If you’re out in Bmore, def check this out! I foreshadow a very mellow night filled with music that appreciates a phenomenal band that has paved their way through the industry and earned respect from others. Swag. 20 Market Place, Baltimore, MD
Tittsworth, Klever & JWLS at UHall Jan. 7th. Titts and Klev are collabing on this one (Kleavage) along with JWLS. I don’t have much to say about this show, I think it’s pretty self-explanatory. Titts had a great, hard-working 2011 year, dropping hits like Pendejas, and performing at major venues all over the place. Nothing like a performance at home though. Klever came through to Uhall back in September for Izumi’s Super Sweet Serial Butt Stabber Party, (Insane show by the way!) glad to have him back. Last but not least, JWLS will also be in the building, him & Billy the gent dropped a mix together earlier last year which def put me on to his music. I’ll be there, I’ll have some stickers for you so make sure to stop by :-)
Dj JD & Dj Jeff Knoxbox are lighting up the city as well at District Underground Saturday night. Not sure if you are familiar with the location, but it’s a sweet spot filled with LED lights that go along well to a bass infused dance party ;) Anyway, these two dj’s have held Dubco down, an incredible movement that consists of bloggers, artists, photographers & videographers. They recently started throwing their own events, in which I must say, I’ve attended and have witnessed the madness these two cause lol If you’re already in Adams Morgan, start your night off here, it’s open bar from 10-12 a.m. #Thankmelater
2477 18th St NW Adams Morgan Washington, DC 20009
The homie Cokez, Shiek Dyce & Jon Doe are hosting a birthday bash at Irene’s Sky Bar in Wheaton Saturday night as well, holding down the hip hop tracks. I personally know Cokes, not only does he have talent in his rhymes, but he’s also a videographer & photographer, closely associated to 1st Impressions Studio. These boys are moving fast, hope we can all keep up! Anyway, show some love if you’re around the way.
Well folks, I have nothing for you for Sunday, but I say take the day to relax, and recover from an eventful weekend! :) I sense that January is going to be filled with amazing shows, so I’ll try to keep you guys posted!
Oh, and did you hear?! Moombahton Massive 1/18 Nadastrom, Sabo, and special guests?!!!!!!!!!!!!! LET’S GO.
