The Dig


Editorial Review

Truth be told, the Trinidad and Tobago Clubhouse is one of the simplest venues around, but it's also one of our favorites. There's a huge ballroom on street level, a low-ceilinged basement below, a tiny bar and a cranking sound system. It's like having a great house party at a rec center, really. The no-frills venue is perfect for the latest installment of the Dig, an ongoing series that shows off some of D.C.'s best (and most disparate) DJ talent. Saturday's episode features the electro-hip-hop sound of Nacey from Nouveau Riche, house beats by Juan Zapata of the Everybody Loves Music crew, and the one-two party punch of Meistro and Deep Sang, the Dirty Bombs collective who've just dropped a fresh new mixtape chock full of house, '90s hip-hop and dance classics. They'll have you sweating it out in no time. Downstairs, it's a heavy drum'n'bass session with Locals, Illeffect and special guest HipGnosis. Admission is $5 before midnight and $10 afterward. The party's open to everyone 18 and over.
