Enjoy your last weekend before finals with some dance music and yoga in a beer garden.
Up for a challenge? DC9 Nightclub invites you to put your phone down for an hour or two (scary, I know) and reconnect with good music. DJ Sean Morris is hosting the event, where attendees can buy $2 drinks from 10:30-11:30 p.m. on the second floor. The event is 21+.
DC9, 1940 9th St. NW, 10 p.m.
Dark & Stormy
If you’re not too intimidated, check out an alternative dance party that features the darker side of electro music. But be warned: This party will not feature any pop music. DJ Shea Van Horn will be playing new-wave, electroclash music that might make you feel – you guessed it – dark and stormy.
Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW, 9:30 p.m., Tickets $5.
Georgetown French Market
