When it comes to pizza, DC residents have very strong opinions. And the team here at DCClubbing is no different. There was some pretty harsh feedback regarding our list of the best Late Night food and it’s lack of pizzerias, so we’ve decided to list the best pizza spots in DC (in no particular order) according to the fanatics who have dined at them all. So CALM DOWN: here you go. And get ready to rumble, because here are the favorites according to our DC clubbers and we’re sure some kind of pizza war is about to begin:

 

Pete’s New Haven Style Apizza

pizza-petes

Location: There are 4 in and around the DC metro area, but we like the one in the heart of Columbia Heights, right next to the metro.
Why: Locally owned and outsourced to nearby farms for fresh produce, Pete’s has a fresh taste and a lot of options that have been specially designed for your satisfaction. You can order by the slice, by the pie, or for yourself – and all of their items are delicious.
We suggest: Sorbillo’s Original – a personal pizza turnover stuffed with homemade sauce, mozzarella, ricotta, and salami. It’s their salute to the “birthplace of pizza” and it is amazing. Photo courtesy of washingtoncitypaper.com

&pizza

late-ap

Location: Quite a few in and around the district, check out their website to find the one closest to you.
Why it’s on the list: To reiterate our last post: it’s basically like Chipotle but for PERSONAL PIZZAS: Choose your dough, 8 different sauces, 20 different toppings, get it fresh oven baked, and add even more cold topping options on top of that.
We suggest trying: A “Build-Your-Own” pizza. You can’t go wrong when you build it yourself. But if you want to try one of their creations, we like the Kiss & Fire – a spicy, sweet take on the classic pie.

_________________________

2AMYS

pizza-2amys

Location: 3715 Macomb St NW
Whats the bfd: The two Amys behind 2AMYS know what they are doing. And what they know is authentic Neopolitan pizza. And not just let’s-pretend-it-is-so-we-make-sales-authentic. REAL authentic. So authentic, in fact, that the Italian government has granted their pizza DOC (a traditional food worthy of preservation) because it uses the proper ingredients to create their perfect pies, as according to Italian pizza authorities (which exist).
TL;DR: their pizza is indeed a bfd. Trust.
We obviously suggest trying: The Neopolitan.  Photo courtesy of zagat.com

_________________________

Duccinis

late-duc

Location: 1778 U St NW
This place is great because: It’s the OG pizzeria. Duccini’s has been around since 1988, making it the oldest pizza delivery service in the city. Not to mention the fact that they’re also constantly ranked in the top tiers of street-style pizza slices around. Gotta give credit to the folks who have stuck around for so long while other pizzerias have tried to compete.
We suggest: one of their big slices. And we mean big.

_________________________

District of Pi

pizza-pi

Location: 910 F St NW (right across the street from Ultrabar)
Why: Happy hour pizzas! And good ones, too. (They also have a great craft beer selection, but we’re not including that in our decision since this list is strictly pizza-based). Deep dish cornmeal crust or classic thin crust – District of Pi has a cool menu that’s sure to satisfy anyone’s pizza palette.
Our fav: The deep dish Delmar. A bbq spin on the traditional pizza, complete with roasted peppers, red onion, and grilled chicken.  Photo courtesy of tripadvisor.com

_________________________

Italian Kitchen on U

pizza-ipk

Location: 1110 U St NW
Reasoning: Did you know that Seamless (the very popular online food ordering service, for those of you who don’t know) has an award called “Just Like Mom’s Food”? Because they DO. And this place won first place. An entire city worth of online food orderers can’t be wrong.
Go hard or go home: The Supremo has it all – caramelized onions, peppers, mushrooms, pepperoni, sausage, and more.  Photo courtesy of yelp.com

_________________________

Ledo’s

pizza-ledo

Location: It’s primary locations are mostly in Maryland, BUT: 7435 Georgia Avenue NW is just into the DC border, so we’re allowed to put it on this list.
Why is it on here: Have you ever tried one of their pizzas? The crust alone should be enough of a selling point (They’re square ’cause they don’t cut corners!) not just because of it’s ample rectangular size, but it’s flaky texture. They also slice their pepperoni thick and it honestly makes all the difference. You end up eating their little square slices like chips.
You need to try: The pepperoni cheese pizza. Get a size that’s big enough to share, you will not be disappointed.  Photo courtesy of yelp.com

_________________________

Menomale

pizza-meno

Location: 2711 12th St NE
Why: The owners are not only great people, but also certified Pizzialos by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, based in Naples, Italy. Basically: they are NO JOKE, you guys. And neither is their amazing pizza.
We suggest trying: the Chef’s Special “Di Ettore” because any certified pizza chef’s special HAS to be good.  Photo courtesy of washingtonpost.com

_________________________

Pizzeria Paradiso

pizza-paradiso

Location: There are actually 3, but we like the one in Georgetown at 3282 M Street NW
Why: Pizzeria Paradiso was created to give proper attention to what the owners believed to be a forgotten part of pizza in DC: the crust. “We developed a dough that would respond to our oven the way we dreamed. We let our dough rise slowly, work it by hand, lightly grace it with the finest quality toppings, finish it with extra virgin olive oil and cook it in our beloved oven.” There is LOVE in these pizzas, guys. And you can taste it.
What you should try: Anything that has both the signature crust and Paradiso sauce – the combo is amazing.  Photo courtesy of tripadvisor.com

–  OUR FAVORITE  –

Wiseguy NY Pizza

pizza-wise

Location: 300 Massachusetts Ave NW
Because: It’s NEW YORK PIZZA. A good 65% of DC residents hail from the northeast and they can attest to the authenticity of the New York pizza this place serves (and if not, then you will never hear the end of how “New York pizza is the best, though” blah blah blah WE GET IT). To be honest, this place should have been included on the late night list AND the hidden gems. Our apologies.
We suggest trying: Anything and everything. It’s all good.  Photo courtesy of dc.eater.com

Did we forget your favorite? Let us know! We love a good pizza. Especially if it’s one worth fighting for.

Reasons to Celebrate Fall

By admin in Get in Style
Wednesday, September 23, 2015, 11:00am. (Updated: 9/29/15 at 2:58pm) Add comments

Time to stop living in denial and flip flops and accept that the Summer is officially over: today marks the first day of Fall. We don’t know about you, but this fact bums us out more than the Redskins’ opener. But just like their second game, we’ll turn it all around: here’s our list of reasons to be excited for the upcoming change in scenery.

 

Pumpkin Spice everything

Hang on to your Uggs because Pumpkin Spice season is back! But Starbucks isn’t the only one in the pumkin parade, so branch out a little and try something new. Our favorites include M&M’s new pumpkin spice flavored chocatate, Krispy Kreme’s dangerously delicious doughnut version of the classic fall treat, and DC’s Hellbender Brewery’s Pitchfork Pumpkin Ale.

_________________________

Change in Scenery

fall2-foliage

When we said “change in scenery” we meant it. Literally. The change in colors in all of the gorgeous public parks throughout DC are enough to make anyone happy that Autumn is here. We suggest going for a brisk walk around the National Mall, in Rock Creek Park, or the Georgetown Waterfront before the psycho DMV weather decides to suddenly dump 8ft of snow on us. The real bonus here: it’s a totally free activity.

_________________________

Fall Concerts

fall2_476x328

We’ve already made a whole list of our favorite shows coming up in the next few months, and it is incredible. The Fall music scene is LEGIT. If you missed that one, you can check it out here.

_________________________

Cooler weather

fall2-weather

“What! No way! I love Summer weather!” LIAR. You and anyone else who has walked more than 50 feet through the district this Summer have been secretly-but-definitely dying for the heat to take it a bit easier on you. No more sweaty Metro seats, no more confusing outfits that have to somehow accommodate both 100 degree outside weather and -30 degree full-blast indoor AC, and no more cars you can bake cookies in after leaving it in the sun for an hour. Rejoice.

_________________________

Football is back

fall-football

F*** YES. Who ISN’T excited about this? It may have technically started a few weeks ago, but we’re super excited because it’s now officially in full swing everywhere. Get your fantasy team in order or set your Terp tailgate up: Fall means it’s officially football season and we could not be happier.

_________________________

Halloween

Best Halloween Parties in DC 2014

Costumes, candy, crazy parties – you can’t ask for a better combination. Halloween is one of our favorite holidays because it gives you an excuse to party ALL WEEKEND without judgement of any kind – especially this year when it falls on a Saturday. Break out your best slutty [insert occupation], lamest pun, or awesome face paint: the best part about Halloween is the prizes, so start planning now and bring your A-game wherever you decide to go.

_________________________

Thanksgiving

fall-turkey

It’s the time to gather with friends and/or family to show the love and gratitude they’ve shown you over the years (while simultaneously downing a plate and a half of everything on the table in front of you). And remember to go out the night before – it’s the biggest drinking night of the year next to New Year’s, so don’t miss out. Reunions galore.

_________________________

Hoodies

fall-hoodie

We just missed them a lot, and it’s finally cool enough out that we can wear them again.

_________________________

Apple cider based drinks (and other warm cocktails)

fall-cider

If you haven’t jumped on the hot-cocktail train, now is the perfect chance to try something new. Try a Hot Hard Apple Cider on H St at The Pug, A warm Bourbon Cider at Garden District on 14th, or a classic Irish Coffee from Tryst in Adams Morgan – they’ll warm you up from the inside out.

_________________________

Bonfires

fall-bonfire

If you don’t host or attend at least one bonfire this Fall, you will be severely disappointed. There’s nothing like keeping warm next to a fire while roasting marshmallows and throwing a few back, so gather your friends and build a pit. It not only makes for a cheap night of drinking, but a really fun one.

_________________________

We’re THISMANYDAYS closer to Christmas

fall-xmas

As of the start of Fall, there are only 92 days until everyone’s favorite holiday. That means decorations are going to start taking over aisles everywhere, awesome deals at your favorite stores will start popping up, and your neighbor’s lights from last year are basically back in season. School breaks, time off from work, and the promise of a New Year – the countdown begins!

See? Fall’s not so bad.

 

Best Late-Night Eats in DC

By admin in Get in Style
Wednesday, September 16, 2015, 11:00am. (Updated: 9/23/15 at 11:06am) Add comments

So you’ve just finished downing that last Tito’s and soda when the blinding house lights go up and it’s time to go. Now what? Go home? Please. If you’re like 99% of drinkers in DC on any given weekend (or weekday, let’s be real), your first thought is that you TOTALLY NEED FOOD RIGHT NOW. You probably don’t really need to eat, but hey – you’re hammered, craving something delicious, and have just enough stamina and coordination left in you to shove a plate full of goodness into your face before finally calling that Uber home. So here are the best late-night options the city has to offer: open until 3am or later and rated amazing by everyone.

 

Amsterdam Falafelshop

late-afs

Locations: One in Adams Morgan and one on the 14th Street corridor
Hours: Open until 3am on Thursday, 4am Friday-Saturday
Price Range: $5-8
Drunk Score: Falafel wrap and fries for $5 and change plus a plethora of other Mediterranean options (chick pea salad, pickled veggies, baba ganoush, etc) – we give this place a solid for being not only delicious, but unique. Not many places like this are open late-night in the district. Can we change that? Photo courtesy of yelp.com

____________________

&Pizza

late-ap

Locations: A lot! But the ones open late are located on K Street, Dupont Circle, and U.
Hours: The stores mentioned above are open until 4am on weekends.
Price Range: Under $10 for everything unless you want a beer or something on the side. Did we mention that? They also serve beers on tap and wine.
Drunk Score: It’s basically like Chipotle but for PERSONAL PIZZAS: Choose your dough, 8 different sauces, 20 different toppings, fresh oven baked, and even more cold topping options on top of that. A+. Actually, add another + for the bonus late-night alcohol. A++  Photo courtesy of yelp.com

____________________

NewBigWong

late-nbw

Location: Chinatown, near the Metro
Hours: 3am during the week, 5am on weekends
Price Range: Average for Chinese take out, expect to spend $8-15
Drunk Score: Besides the fact that the name makes us all giggle, the food is delicious. We’d give it an A- for it’s awesome downtown location around the corner from the Gallery Place Metro, but dropped it down to a B+ because of how full of grease and regret we feel after eating it.  Photo courtesy of newbigwong.com

____________________

Oohh’s & Aahh’s

late-ooh.jpg

Location: 1005 U Street
Hours: Open until 4am on weekends
Price Range: Slightly pricier than the normal late-night food, but totally worth it. Their late night menu features combos that will run you anywhere from $12-30 depending on how hard you want to go.
Drunk Score: Soul food that genuinely feeds your soul. Get homemade mac and cheese, fried chicken, cobblers, greens and more at this little spot that was actually featured on the Food Network. A+ for sure.  Photo courtesy of yelp.com

____________________

Ducinni’s Pizza

late-duc

Location: 1778 U St NW
Hours: Open till 3am during the week, open until 5am on the weekends
Price Range: $9-17 for slices or whole pies, but they also have wings, subs, fries, etc.
Drunk Score: For the oldest pizza delivery in DC (since 1988), we give Ducinni’s an A. Credit to these guys for staying strong through the years with great pizza and awesome service.  Photo courtesy of yelp.com

____________________

Fast Gourmet

gem-fastog

Location: 1400 W St NW
Hours: Open until 5:30am on weekends
Price Range: $5-$17 depending on how hungry you are and what you feel like eating – they’ve got amazing options that range from sandwiches to empanadas.
Drunk Score: We’ve already discussed this place in our Hidden Gems article, but it definitely deserves another bout of recognition. A+ not only for the fact that they stay open so late but also because they keep a full menu running while doing so.

____________________

The DINER

late-diner

Location: 2453 18th St. NW
Hours: 24/7
Price Range: $7-15 – and that includes stacks of buttermilk pancakes or the classic steak and eggs. Get your favorite diner staples here and for great prices.
Drunk Score: Anything less than an A+ would be doing this glorious retro-style diner a disservice. Full menu available all hours of the day and night, just like a diner should be.   Photo courtesy of yelp.com

____________________

Osman & Joe’s Steak ‘n Egg Kitchen

late-osman

Location: 4700 Wisconsin Ave
Hours: 24/7
Price Range: $8-16
Drunk Score: For it’s awesome burger-centric diner menu and it’s 24/7 hours of operation, we gave Osman and Joe’s a B+. But then we found their website and a quote that gave them a few extra points: “If you can think of it, we can probably make it.” Challenge accepted. APhoto courtesy of osmanandjoes.com

____________________

Dangerously Delicious Pies

late-ddp

Location: I Street Chinatown and H Street – but H Street is the night owl.
Hours: Fridays and Saturdays they stay open until 3:30am
Price Range: $6.50-7.50 for a handsomely sized slice, $30-35 for an enormous whole pie.
Drunk Score: Oh man. Sweet, savory, or quiche – they’ve got everything your drunk self could ever want and it’s all wrapped up in an impossibly perfect looking slice. Dangerously Delicious pies really lives up to their name. We’ve had the pleasure of a visit from one of their food trucks and let us be the first to tell you: A+.  Photo courtesy of dangerouspiesdc.com

____________________

Jumbo Slice

late-jumbo

Location: 2341 18th St NW
Hours: Every day from 11am to 3am
Price Range: $5-6 for a slice of pizza that’s far too large for anyone in a stable state of mind. Intoxicated, however…
Drunk Score: A lot of their slices’ taste comes from how drunk you are. Have you been there sober? No? Exactly. But it’s RIGHT THERE if you’re out in Adams Morgan. Our drunk selves say A, but our sober selves say C. Let’s just go with B.

____________________

Yum’s II Carryout

late-yums

Location: There’s a few Yum’s out there, but the one we like is at 1413 14th St NW
Hours: Open until 4am every night
Price Range: The same as your ordinary Chinese takeout ($9-17), except this one not only has huge portions, but also offers American fare and late-night delivery. Want some General Tso’s with a side of crinkle-cut fries and mumbo sauce? You got it.
Drunk Score: You really can’t go wrong with Chinese food after a night of drinking – it’s delicious and soaks up all the alcohol you just consumed. A-   Photo courtesy of yelp.com

____________________

Surfside

late-surf

Location: 1800 N St NW
Hours: 24 a day
Price Range: $4-7
Drunk Score: This heavy hitter comes in a small package. Surfside is located in a little shack in the middle of Dupont and serves up a killer 11pm-11am menu of tacos, quesadillas, chips, and guacamole that will satisfy even the drunkest of palettes. A+ for their breakfast burritos alone.   Photo courtesy of yelp.com

Give every one of these spots a medal for dealing with your obnoxious 4am-hungry ass and tell your drunk self we said “You’re welcome.”

 

 

10 People We're Done With

By admin in Get in Style
Wednesday, September 9, 2015, 11:00am. (Updated: 9/16/15 at 11:15am) Add comments

Famous or not, we all know them. And we all hate them.

 

1.  Miley Cyrus

tired-mileyWE GET IT MILEY. YOU LOVE POT AND YOU WEAR CRAZY CLOTHES AND YOU’RE SO INSANE ZOMG. Except your excessive pot references made you look like a desperate freshman at orientation week, the “unique” clothes you wore were blatant ripoffs of an awesome Australian clothing label, and you’re craziness is no more than a painfully scripted series of very uncomfortable moments at this point. The 2015 VMAs were like watching someone try really hard to be the “cool mom” in a group of eye-rolling kids with forced smiles. You aren’t funny, you definitely aren’t cool, and the only thing going for you is that your career’s definitive dive-bomb was nationally televised.

2. Justin Beiber

tired-justinWhy. WHY do people still care about this kid? (Okay, the song with Skrillex isn’t bad, but that’s thanks to Skrillex, not the Beibs) When you Google yourself and see that 90% of the hits include the word “douche” or some variation of it, you’ve got to know that you’ve taken some wrong turns in your life. Also, who told him that haircut was a solid choice? He should speak to his manager about it. Dear Justin Beiber, you are the worst. Love, everyone minus the screaming tweens who refuses to believe the internet.

3.  The Metro

tired-metroMother of god. Get your sh*t together, Metro. We get it – it’s not a person, but it raised all the rider rates, promised us some swanky new cars, and built new stations to extend it’s reach. What did we get in return? “Good morning passengers! Please note that there will be indefinite delays in all directions on every line due to permanent single tracking for track work that will never get done. There are no working elevators at most stations, so godspeed to all our handicap friends riding today. Also, apologies for the lack of a/c in any capacity while the Summer humidity hits its peak. Have a great morning explaining to your boss and/or teacher why you’re 45 minutes late and dripping with strangers’ sweat!”

4.  Kanye West

tired-kanyeFew people can piss off the masses with the finesse that Kanye does. Every time he gets in some sort of spotlight (or when someone else does, but he takes it anyway), he wastes precious minutes of our lives that could have been better spent getting hit by a truck. Who keeps giving him a microphone? We miss Late Registration-era Kanye, when the music hit home and it didn’t come with terrible fashion sense and a presidential campaign.

5.  Meek Mill

tired-meekHA. We almost feel sorry for him. Almost. You can’t get superdissed by Drake and then come back with a response that causes a hashtag frenzy making fun of you. #MeekBeLike DCClubbing aint even write its own blogs tho. The one bonus about this guy still desperately trying to keep afloat on twitter are the awesome burn jokes that have come out of it.

6.  Iggy Azalea

tired-iggyJust give up, Iggy. After you spat gibberish and tried selling it as a “freestyle” verse during one of your awful concerts, the world stopped paying attention to your music and more to the fact that you sound like Donnie from The Wild Thornberrys.

7.  Dan Snyder & RG3

tired-skinsIt says a lot when the worst thing about your franchise isn’t its abysmal record on the field. Between Snyder being Snyder and RG3 failing spectacularly at the one job he had to do, Skins fans have fallen to the lowest pits of fandom hell.

8.  That one kid in class who, when the teacher asks “Before we end early, are there any more questions?”, asks an obnoxious question with a very complicated answer

tired-onehandEat sh*t, kid. We could have made it to Happy Hour if it wasn’t for you. It’s probably the same person who reminded the teacher to check last night’s homework you didn’t do.

9.  That person who doesn’t seem to understand escalator etiquette

THE LEFT SIDE IS FOR WALKERS, THE RIGHT IS FOR STANDERS. If you’re going to stare at your phone to play Candy Crush at full volume you need to stop trying to walk at a glacial pace and step aside. We lost track of how many trains were missed, how many curse words were uttered, and how much time was wasted because some butthead decided to block the fast lane on the escalator while a rage-filled line formed behind them. MOVE.

10.  All of the Kardashians

tired-kardashEight years. EIGHT. That’s how long America has let the travesty of “Keeping Up” with them go on. If you haven’t caught the IQ-dropping show, no worries: their faces are everywhere anyway. Take a look at any tabloid, odds are at least one of them is plastered across the front page with some kind of new “scandal” to keep them in the spotlight they so desperately cling to. OMG A KARDASHIAN HAS BLUE HAIR NOW SEE PICS POSTED TO THEIR INSTAGRAMS THEY DEFINITELY DON’T WANT YOU TO SEE. Stfu.

 

Fall Concerts in DC

Wednesday, September 2, 2015, 11:00am. (Updated: 9/08/15 at 3:35pm) Add comments

End-of-Summer blues? We all have it, but the Fall music lineup is definitely going to cheer you up. Don’t get us wrong – Summer concerts are awesome, but the Fall ones are taking the music scene to a new level. Don’t believe us? Pshh…

 

Blues Traveler

fall-bluestrav

When: Friday, September 11
Where: Fillmore Silver Spring
Tickets: $38 through Ticketmaster

Blues Traveler may be physically smaller than when he first started out, but his vocal reach and harmonica talent is not. And the Fillmore in Silver Spring is a great place to get the run around up close and personal.

____________________

Life in Color

20150912_LIC-lineup

When: Saturday, September 12
Where: RFK Stadium
Tickets:$65 through Ticketmaster

Man, where do we start with this one. We could begin with the lineup, which includes bass favorites Adventure Club and Seven Lions as headliners. Or we could talk about the fact that it’s the East Coast’s largest paint party. But honestly? You should just trust us when we say buy a ticket and get ready to have an insane time. We suggest wearing an all-white ensemble that’ll get dyed while dancing so you can show it off at future shows.

____________________

Madonna

fall-madonna

When: Saturday, September 12
Where: Verizon Center
Tickets: $55-$200 depending on where you choose to sit, tickets are still available through Ticketmaster

This woman REFUSES TO QUIT. And that is not meant to be a slight at her because the more she does, the more she amazes. It’s your chance to see the queen of pop and reinvention at the Verizon Center for what’s sure to be an incredible show. Yeah, we said it. Don’t be a hater. We dare you to rock tights and a leotard on an arena stage when you’re pushing 60.

____________________

Echoversary

echo-3year2015-tchamibingo3

When: Friday, September 18 – Saturday, September 19
Where: Really?
Tickets: $30 per show, but if you want to go to both it’s only $50 for a joint ticket (via Wantickets).

For three years this place has been on the forefront of bringing EDM to the nation’s capital, and for three years it has succeeded in doing that and then some. Named the #2 club in the country and #18 in the WORLD, Echostage continues to bring epic acts and amazing shows of all kinds to the DMV. Two nights worth of celebrating isn’t enough, in our opinion.

____________________

Ed Sheeran

fall-ed

When:Tuesday, September 22 – Wednesday, September 23
Where:Verizon Center
Tickets: $90 via Ticketmaster (if they haven’t sold out already)

The soft spoken, sweet talking Irishman himself is going to be in DC for 2 days! Just thinking out loud here, but you should go.

GET IT? But seriously. Go.

___________________

J Balvin

with special guest Becky G100315-echo-IG-jbalvin_beckyg-2

When: Saturday, October 3
Where: Echostage
Tickets:Ticketmaster has a few left for $42 and change

Put some latin flavor in your Fall music journey with J Balvin and Becky G. As we said before, “J Balvin is known for beat-heavy performances that feature a troupe of talented female backup dancers, and his high-energy renditions of fan favorites like ‘Tranquila’ and ‘Yo Te Lo Dije’ always get fans moving!” Get ready to get down, mi amigos.

____________________

Weekend in the Country

fall-wknd

When: Saturday, October 3 – Sunday, October 4
Where: Merriweather Post Pavilion
Tickets: $55-$75 but apparently sold out

For you country lovers out there, this is your mecca. It’s also probably the best way to send-off the Summer as Merriweather is the epitome of Summer music celebrations and this marks the end of their 2015 season. If you were lucky enough to grab a ticket before they sold out, it’s time break out the cornhole, pack your your travel grill, and put all your favorite tailgate drinks on ice, because this weekend will be one for the books.

____________________

Ricky Martin

fall-ricky

When: Friday, October 9
Where: EagleBank Arena (formerly Patriot Center)
Tickets: $66 via Ticketmaster, but prices appear to be going up.

It’s been a long time since she banged, but the songs are still pulling crowds! Gotta give credit to the guy who knows what made him famous and is still willing to capitalize on it (and poke a little fun at himself in the process). For instance: The “Livin La Vida Loca Meet and Greet Package” is in existence along side the “Shake Your Bon-Bon Party Package”. Well done, Ricky.

____________________

Marc Anthony & Carlos Vives

fall-marcant.jpg

When: Sunday, October 11
Where: EagleBank Arena
Tickets: $78 via Ticketmaster

YEAH. This guy. He’s still kicking. And not just kicking – the actor, dancer, and [obviously] singer still proves he can put on a great show. This time, he’s performing alongside Carlos Vives – a long time friend and fellow performer who’s vocal stylings will get you up and at ’em.

____________________

Disclosure

20151022_disclosure-ig

When: Wednesday, October 21 – Thursday, October 22
Where: Echostage
Tickets: The second night’s show is $45 via Ticketmaster but they’re SUPER close to selling out

In case you hadn’t heard: Disclosure is great. So great, in fact, that a second show had to be added to accommodate for the demand. They initially gained mainstream popularity thanks to a collaboration with Sam Smith on “Latch” and did it once again with the recent “Omen”. Their cool, soulful electronic vibes are everything right now. Odds are both shows will sell out before you finish reading this post, so get on it.

____________________

Chainsmokers

20151031_chainsmokers-ig

When: Halloween!
Where: Echostage
Tickets: Just $25 through Wantickets

Honestly – and we aren’t just saying this because it’s Echostage and we love it – Halloween + Echostage = Spectacular. Take a venue where some of the greatest shows have come to life and combine it with one of the most colorful and crazy holidays of the year? Have mercy. AND Chainsmokers are there with a crazy tour lineup? I need to sit down. At a computer. To buy tickets.

The Weeknd

When: Sunday, November 15
Where: Verizon Center
Tickets: Start at $50 on Ticketmaster

If you haven’t heard of the Weeknd, it’s time to crawl out from the rock you’ve been living under and pay attention: this Canadian born artist began his career at the peak of the YouTube generation after dropping his mixtapes online back in 2011. Obviously, said mixtapes were FIRE because he’s now selling out the Verizon Center this November. His Beauty Behind the Madness tour will more than likely feature the recent radio-favorite hits “The Hills” and “Can’t Feel My Face”, take a listen if you’ve managed not to yet.

When: Tuesday, November 17
Where: Echostage
Tickets:$38 and change through Ticketmaster

Andrew McMahon is an inspiration. You’ve probably heard some of his musical influence courtesy of Jack’s Mannequin back in the day, but he has made a name for himself all on his own thanks to a few Emmy nods and a heartfelt song written for his new baby girl Cecilia about the impermanence of life (did we mention he beat cancer?) and his vow to protect her. We’ll give you a minute to gather yourself –sniff-theyrejustallergies-sniff– before you buy a ticket.
