Editorial Review

We have to admit that we paused when we got an invite to a Donovan House rooftop pool party called "Unknown Pleasures.” Joy Division is probably the last thing you want to listen to while drinking a beer poolside on a summer day, you know? But fear not: This is another dance party organized by Chris Price, of the local FFWD label, and he’s promising everything from Larry Levan to LCD Soundsystem for your listening pleasure. With no cover charge, happy hour drink specials and one of the best views in Washington, consider this house/post-punk/punk-funk party a must-do. Just get there early, because capacity is limited.
