Local record store owners take a spin behind the decks at Beyond in April

Beyond, the weekly downtempo happy hour in Dupont Circle, is celebrating its first anniversary by hosting some of DC’s favorite record store managers. Som Records’ Neal Becton, Red Onion’s Joshua Harkavy, and Crooked Beat’s Holly Tegeler will be taking over Beyond in the month of April. During the month of April, each of these esteemed DJs will have an evening in which to showcase their skills and personal vinyl collections.

Beyond, the Dupont Circle weekly Extended Happy Hour event takes place every Wednesday from 6PM to 11PM in the Upstairs lounge above Skewers and Café Luna restaurants at 1633 P St NW (at the corner of 17th St and P St). More info here. (Via

TVD's Daily Wax | The English Beat "What Is Beat?"

Feel that? It's the reins of a 'theme week' coming loose, lightening the blog load in favor of some old skool freestylin'. And what better way to inaugurate this non-theme theme then a handful from the always appreciated English Beat. I hear quite a few toes tapping in office cubes this morning...

The English Beat - I Confess (Mp3)
The English Beat - Doors Of Your Heart (Mp3)
The English Beat - Save It For Later (Mp3)
The English Beat - Too Nice To Talk To (Mp3)
The English Beat - Can't Get Used To Losing You (Mp3)

(BTW - 300th post. My.)
