Weekend Pick: Gramatik at 9:30 Nightclub

Gramatik describes himself as a “part-time musician and full-time comedian,” because he never takes his music seriously. But anyone who’s heard his debut album Beatz and Pieces, Vol. 1 knows the catchy hooks and infectious beats are no joke.

Selling 80,000 tracks on Beatport.com is no laughing matter either. Gramatik’s skills as a producer are only surpassed by his comedic skills, making it impossible to tell what he’s best at: making people dance, or making them laugh. Born in Slovenia, Gramatik currently resides in NYC, but will be hanging in DC this weekend at 9:30 Nightclub.

Come join the party for an uproariously good time! Show is 21+.

When: Saturday, April 5th, 9pm

Where: 9:30 Nightclub, 815 V St. NW, Washington, DC
