First-ever Atlanta Weekender continues through Sunday

31 Aug

For those who want to mix in a little house music with their Dragon*Con and Black Gay Pride plans, consider the Atlanta Weekender. It officially kicked off yesterday.

Atlanta’s finest house and soul music DJs — Kemit, Kai Alce, Salah Ananse and Ramon Rawsoul — are the main attraction, although guests from out of town, including Baltimore’s Karizma who is spinning at Sound Table tonight, will represent as well.

The big event is Sunday’s House in the Park, which moves to Grant Park from Perkerson for the first time.

Here’s an excerpt from my buddy Carlton Hargro, who wrote about it for Creative Loafing.

By now, most dance enthusiasts are aware that Labor Day in Atlanta means it’s time for another installment of House in the Park. This annual outdoor celebration of music and fellowship … featuring the turntable powers of Ramon Rawsoul, DJ Kemit, Kai Alce and Salah Ananse has become a destination for house heads from all over the world for almost a decade.

Check out the full story, which includes a Q&A with Weekender founder Ananse here.

You’ve got about 2 hours left to get $10 tickets to Spread Love tonight at 595 North. It’s back to the big venue for the return of ’80s Boogie Night. Kemit and guest DJ Daz-I-Kue are on the decks. Plus, they’ll be shooting a video for one of my favorite songs from Kemit’s upcoming album, “Fortune Teller” featuring Eric Roberson. So come to dance and come looking fly if you want to!
