Ready for the weekend #18

With Tuesday’s Summer Solstice, the season is officially upon us. Other than BBQs and the requisite outdoor activities, what’s on deck this weekend?

The Plan

  • Friday: For Happy Hour, join TGRIOnline at U Street Music Hall for Michael Jackson is Still Alive, where four DJs ensure that the King of Pop’s memory will live forever. Best late night option is Maison (with DJ TMY and Gavin Holland); best later night option is $weat $hop (with Jackie O and Denman).
  • Saturday: Tickets are still available for oft-imitated indie rock gods Dinosaur Jr. at the 9:30 Club. For even more 80s and 90s nostalgia, Henry Rollins will be interviewing the band before the show.
  • Sunday: Drum and bass innovator LTJ Bukem stops by U Hall, presented by Anniething Goes & 2Tuff. Don’t miss one of Bukem’s few US tour dates, at one of the best venues for his atmospheric low-end sounds.

The Soundtrack

Another day, another moombahton mix: this time, it’s the latest volume of TGRI’s Culipandeo series, spun by 20-year-old Australian J-Trick. Listen how they get down down under, with plenty of exclusives including “Amplifire” by Diplo and Skrillex and “That Jeffrey” by Heartbreak and Toddla T.
