Sick of sleazy opulence? Worn down by the strains of sweet talk and looking pretty? Now and again, the pleasures of the nightlife game can suck the swagger from any player. Even pimp legend Iceberg Slim sometimes felt teased, tormented, and brutalized. In these cases, slap therapy must be applied immediately. It must be swift, unexpected, and land straight on the spot where your jaded soul lives. And theres no sweeter dose than Grand Groove, upstairs at Jazid the last Wednesday of every month.
From 11 p.m. to 4 a.m., its a 21-and-older correction session with DJs Sire Esq., Sharpsound, and Mr. Brown dropping quality funk, hip-hop, broken beat, and more. Bonuses include special guest DJ Neville C of Washington, D.C.s Som Records, plus a live downstairs set by Latin Grammy-nominated Xperimento. And even for the stone-broke, theres no excuse to stay home. Free cover and four-dollar shot specials are standard
