After numerous false starts, it looks like spring has finally sprung. Let’s see what’s on the agenda that won’t require you to be inside (for too long, at least).
- Friday: Head down to Subterranean A (good new DC venue or best new DC venue?) for an evening of laughter – the succinctly titled Comedy Underground. After that, Matthew Dear puts down the guitar and gets back in the DJ booth for Red Friday at U Hall.
- Saturday: Is there anything better than eating delicious food at a street fair? Taste of 8th takes over Barracks Row from 1-4PM, as twenty area restaurants present their signature dishes at reasonable prices. While you’re in SE, you might as well keep it martial and head from the Barracks to the Armory for the DC Rollergirls.
- Sunday: Take it easy Saturday night because the first Sunday of the month is always a good one. The folks behind Forward Fest are taking over Yards Park, and if you haven’t been to Tropixxx at Velvet Lounge yet, what are you waiting for?
A couple of moombahton minimixes should do the trick. First up, the preview for Dave Nada’s moombahton compilation (Blow Your Head, Vol. 2, out May 31st on Mad Decent), and then the promo mix for the forthcoming EP by Billy the Gent, Long Jawns, and DJ JWLS. Dale!
