Sick Downtown Block Party This Sunday

UPDATE: Moved around the corner to larger parking lot at 425 K St NW. Thanks to The Triangle for the info.

OMG... it's summer already. Evidence: Temps in the 80s, Memorial Day weekend and block parties.

DC's own DURKL will be taking care of the block party portion this weekend. They're throwing one near their warehouse in Mount Vernon Triangle.

The lot at 5th and I NW was rumored for years to be the future site of this or that, including a House of Blues at one point. Alas, it's still a parking lot. But this weekend, it will be transformed into a party space for any and all who venture downtown. DURKL is a bona fide homegrown fashion house of sorts. They have a store, the warehouse on I Steet, and bring some creative flair to Washington's fairly sedated fashion scene.

The line-up is sick. Disgusting really. Among the crazy list of DJs and performers are...

*Jackie O + Lil El (from one of my favorite parties, KIDS)
*Beautiful Swimmers (helped christen U Hall)
*Stereo Faith (Sorted, Feedback)
*Nouveau Riche (Gavin Holland, et al)
*Will Eastman (Bliss)
... and more.

It's Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. As in this Sunday. A holiday weekend people, so many of you will have the next day off. Come out. Starts at 11, ends at 7. We've already had two great outdoor parties, Sweetlife, then Mount Pleasant Music Fest. So, let's keep it going. See ya there.
