Dimitri From Paris joins All Good Funk Alliance and The Sol Power All Stars tonight at U Street Music Hall
An absolutely amazing night of house music, from the afro- and Latin-flavored deep sounds of The Sol Power All Stars (complete with live percussion, as always), to the funky electronic-tinged house of All Good Funk Alliance, to the classic, deep, and soulful house that Dimitri From Paris calls his stock-in-trade. This is a do-not-miss night!
