Editorial Review

Norman Jay has been a DJ in London for almost three decades, moving from spinning at legendary early-'90s warehouse parties and helping introduce the UK to house and "rare groove" music on pirate radio to spinning on his own BBC show, running a soundsystem at the Notting Hill Carnival -- the biggest street party in Western Europe -- and working with Giles Peterson to launch the Talking Loud label. He's done so much for dance music, in fact, that Queen Elizabeth II honored him by making him a member of the Order of the British Empire for "deejaying and services to music" in her 2002 Honours List. In short, he's a godfather. But tonight's appearance at Eighteenth Street Lounge will be Jay's very first visit ever to Washington. In short, do not miss it. DJ Moose kicks off the night.
