Don’t Miss: DJ Questlove @ Howard Theatre, 9/24/16

This weekend, DC takes up many celebrations for the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, including a free music festival near the museum — a festival that will include The Roots.

Later on Saturday, Sept. 24, Roots drummer Questlove will turn to his moonlighting job as DJ, and he will play a late-night set at the Howard Theatre. Questlove has visited DC as a DJ quite a few times, and if you’re in New York City, he’s often found in his DJ regular residency at Brooklyn Bowl.

But not every DJ gig by Questlove goes as smoothly as it does at the Brooklyn Bowl! Case in point: To mark Questlove’s 45th birthday earlier this year, Okayplayer TV animated a story by Questlove of a time when Prince replaced him with a screening of the movie “Finding Nemo.” Watch the story (animated by Hectah) via YouTube:

Rest assured Questlove has nothing but love and admiration for Prince, despite his humorous tale! And you will undoubtedly hear beats from many of the other artists with whom Questlove has worked, perhaps including Erykah Badu, Joss Stone, Justin Timberlake, and D’Angelo, among others.

Mind you, Questlove has owns an incredible vinyl collection of more than 50,000 records that he keeps in his own personal climate-controlled library. So he can basically pull out the unexpected at a whim.

So keep the celebration going late on Saturday with DJ Questlove. Tickets are available online!

Don’t Miss: Sam Feldt @ 9:30 Club, 9/30/16

Sam Feldt started his music career in 2013 at the age of 20! And here in that short time, we are all dancing to his music. A year after his debut, the Dutchman signed with Spinnin’ Records and released his first track on the label.

In 2014, he grabbed our attention with his remix of the Sander van Doorn and Firebeatz release “Guitar Track,” which received almost two million plays on Soundcloud (250,000 plays in one week!) and a #1 Hypem spot.

Sam really drove it home with his 2015 release “Show Me Love,” a track that characterizes his signature sound of “beautifully built melodies, loads of atmosphere and emotion packed in a tantalizing, often laidback groove, ” according to his label.

In advance of a new release, Sam is spinning at the 9:30 Club with Bakermat on Friday, Sept. 30.

Listen to a preview of “Runaways” by Sam Feldt and Deepend featuring Teemu (available Oct. 7!) on Soundcloud:

So far in 2016, Sam released his first extended play, Been a While, and singles “Shadows of Love” (featuring Heidi Rojas) and “Summer on You” (with Lucas & Steve featuring Wulf). The young DJ is unstoppable!

At the 9:30 Club, Sam is joined by fellow Dutchman Bakermat, who recently released the single “Living” featuring Alex Clare from the album of the same name.

Tickets are available online.
