Looking for the funk and some serious dancing this Memorial Day weekend? We’ve got you covered.
Saturday night: Get a healthy dose of Chuck Brown and Donna Summer memorial super sets alongside forgotten 80s boogie classics at Axel F.
Sunday night: Get down to sets from Nappy Riddem and Fort Knox Five, and witness the debut live performance of All Good Funk Alliance before the legendary Afrika Bambaataa takes the decks for an ecclectic journey through all things funky at Funk4Peace at U Street Music Hall.
Saturday Night 05/26: Axel F at Liv
Alongside the usual Jheri Curl Funk, Champagne Soul, and Lazer Boogie Axel F jams, DJ Stylus, Adrian Loving, and Jahsonic will be carving out some special extended blocks of songs for Chuck Brown and Donna Summer, and not just the tunes that everyone knows.
