Sam The Man Burns is a D.C. music legend. As one of D.C.’s premier disc jockeys, he has helped shape the local house music scene since its inception back in the day at the Clubhouse—-all while inspiring generations of house heads and fellow DJs. A walking encyclopedia of records, D.C. club history and ’70s blaxploitation films, Sam is your favorite DJ’s favorite DJ. Not to mention he has been a driving force in keeping DJ Hut (formerly 12 Inch Dance Records) open and committed to supplying the local vinyl junkies with their fix.

This Friday DJ Divine and friends will be throwing a party to celebrate Sam’s birthday. The action goes down tonight at Mirrors, 33 New York Ave NE. You can bet the dance floor will be bumping, the walls will sweat and the beat won’t stop until early Saturday morning. As Sam loves to say “bring money and wash your a#$!”
