Editorial Review

If you've been to the quasi-underground Soca parties at the Trinidad and Tobago Clubhouse in upper Northwest or wound down low at the Caribbean Carnival parties at Zanzibar on the Waterfront, you've danced to tunes spun by Spyda the DJ. A Barbadian native who has become a D.C. fixture, he's bringing his favorite dancehall and rockers to Patty Boom Boom this weekend - Vybz Cartel, Beenie Man and much more. (Get a preview on his mix page, spydathedj.podomatic.com.) Spyda is on the decks until 3 a.m.; get there early to beat the inevitable lines.
