DC: A Tribute to Frankie Knuckles and a Celebration of the Underground w/ Amir Alexander, Sam “The Man” Burns & Joe L

04/26/2014 @ 9:00 pm - 04/27/2014 @ 3:00 am



FORWARD and Bump ‘n Grind are happy to welcome Amir Alexander to Zeba for his DC Debut. Amir currently lives in Berlin, but is and has been a mainstay and champion of the Chicago Underground House scene for years. As proponents of the underground for over 10 years in DC, thinking through our Frankie Knuckles tribute and FORWARD’s perspective theme.

Frankie pioneered the underground in Chicago, creating a scene and lifestyle for thousands where there literally wasn’t one. He created a refuge for those that walked on the fringe, those that needed a safe place to express themselves emotionally/physically for hours on end. Amir is carrying that torch, carrying that flame and will be showcasing and juxtaposing the Chicago Underground’s legacy and perspective via three turntables for our beloved DC community.

Bring your open mind and heart. Wear those shoes and duds that inspire you to move and prepare to shimmy your way across that baby powdered dance floor as we welcome Amir Alexander to DC for a very special edition of Bump ‘n Grind!
