Last week, this piece took a vacation as I escaped to New York. In DC for the holiday weekend?

- Friday: It’s a TGIF for dancing. If you’re 22 or younger, head to the 411 Warehouse for the last Wild North of the season. Older than that and you should be at U Hall as the Beautiful Swimmers crew hosts Theo Parrish for Red Friday.
- Saturday: As mentioned earlier this week, both Menya (with Sherell Rowe and Lemz) and Christoph Andersson (at Bliss with Will Eastman and Mr. Bonkerz) will be performing on U Street. Can’t go wrong with either of these.
- Sunday: There’s a fully-loaded concert double header. The Kills, Cold Cave, and The Entrance Band play a sold-out crowd at 9:30, and hip-hop saviors Big K.R.I.T. and Freddie Gibbs take over U Hall.
Clockwork’s resident space disco expert Chris Nitti put out an hour-long mix of spring sounds titled simply “April.” Nitti’s profile is rising for a reason: add an encyclopedic knowledge of house music to a talent at seamless mixing and you can’t go wrong.
