This is the kind of weekend that requires a clone or two to fully appreciate. Failing that, be prepared to make some tough decisions. (Image via #ffffound)
- Friday: BYT takes over the Newseum, so the city should be relatively hipster-free tonight. Deep Sugar DC, featuring Ultra Naté and Lisa Moody, handles Red Friday duties at U Hall. Alternatively, TMY and Vanniety Kills check their french for Maison at Napoleon. Late night, get slushied at Sweat Shop with Denman and Jackie O at the 9:30 Backbar.
- Saturday: Baltimore collective Wham City invades Subterranean A for a night of comedy. At the same time, Painted Face and Miami Horror play electro-pop live at U Hall; stick around for the Japan benefit afterwords.
- Sunday: Catching a DC Rollergirls bout at the Armory is always a blast. Also, Sunday is the perfect day for a matinee: skip Sucker Punch and see Paul.
Helping bring together the Culipandeo moombahton mixes (with DJs A-Mac, David Heartbreak, and Melo) was one of the most rewarding parts of co-editing True Genius Requires Insanity. My partner-in-crime Marcus Dowling took care of this one on his own, and it’s a killer.
Lithuania’s Boyfriend is pushing the boundaries of moombahton, both sonically and geographically. The DJ, who first came to my attention when he flipped Heartbreak’s “Chavvi,” drops a mix that is full of moombah-offshoots, including plenty of moombahsoul. The movement continues!
