Baile Funk Comes to DC
by Winston "Stone" Ford
The first time I saw Diplo spin, it was at Dragonfly last year. The dude is fire, but let’s just say that the crowd was more interested in looking pretty than trying to dance. (It’s a DC thing, trust me.) Hopefully he’ll get a better reception when he plays Black Cat, but somehow I doubt it.
It’s all good though. Diplo will be spinning his brand of balie funk along with Brazillian DJ’s CSS (warning…worst website ever) and Bonde Do Role. Although the hipsters will most likely sit by the bar, this black dude will definately be on the dance floor.
Event takes place this Sunday, June 23rd. Doors open at 8:30. Tickets are $13 advance, and $15 at the door. Hit me up if you’re swinging by.
