FRIDAY With over 30+ DJs and live performances by The Get ‘Em Mami’s AND The Clipse, My Crew Be Unruly is the place to be on Friday night. Baltimore’s Pradox will be filled to the brim with all 3 rooms going until 5 AM. Add to that the FREE BEER and FREE HOT BREAKFAST to boot. this is bound to be the party of the year. Seriously, with so many DJs and more suprises to be announced, I wouldn’t be surprised if your Grandma gets added to the bill. Get your $15 tickets here. (Paradox, Baltimore – 1310 Russell St, Baltimore, MD)

FRIDAY For those who aren’t making the trip up to Baltimore, you should check out my homie DJ Stylus as he joins DJ Louis P and DJ Kimozaki at Gallery in Silver Spring (1115 East West Highway). They’re bringing a completely different and laid back vibe back to the DC area. No velvet ropes or bottle service here. Check it

SATURDAY If you’re still in Baltimore and recovering from Friday’s My Crew event, then you should definitely check out Artscape, which bills itself as “America’s Largest Free Arts Festival.” In addition to the tons of art, there will be live performances on 3 stages and competitions. A very good look.

SATURDAY Before Clipse rolls over to Sneaker Pimps and after My Crew, they will be at Commonwealth for an in-store meet and greet. If you know about Cmon’s in-stores, then you know it’s going to be a good look.
