Back in the Day


Editorial Review

"Back in the Day" is the perfect name for the lineup of DJs at the Trinidad and Tobago clubhouse tonight, as the list of performers is a guaranteed blast-from-the-past for anyone who went clubbing around D.C. in the '90s and the early part of this decade: Scott Henry, the founder of Buzz, whose mixes were essential listening for anyone who loved house and rave music; Slant, one of the foremost progenitors of drum'n'bass nights with the 2Tuff collective; and Ray Casil of the house-heavy Drive Safe Crew; Buster, who threw (and spun at) underground parties with the Snowball Collective. Even if you weren't around when these guys were ruling the scene, this looks to be one heck of a party. The cover is $10 before 1 a.m., which is your clue how late the beats will be working.
