Spend Sunday in the sun with drinks and DJs

Craig Hudson/For The Washington Post - Marvin’s extended rooftop bar creates a large, comfortable spot to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon with good music, cheap drinks and a lively crowd.

By the time Sunday afternoon rolls around, I often realize that I’m not ready for the weekend to end. Yes, I have to be back in the office in less than 24 hours. Yes, I probably should clean the bathroom and do some vacuuming.

On the other hand, the sun is shining and I didn’t suffer through that never-ending winter so that I could sit on my couch. I want to be outside, listening to good music, having a drink and hanging out with friends.

Out on the Deck 
With Keenan and Smudge

3 to 8 p.m. Marvin, 2007 14th St. 202-797-7171. www.marvindc.co

For the sixth straight year, DJs Keenan Orr and Lucas Smudge helm one of the most irresistible parties in Washington. Sunday afternoons at Marvin are always full of good-looking people sipping $4 mimosas, $5 Absolut Peppar bloody marys and $6 glasses of wine and rail drinks until the sun sets. The music is just as diverse as the crowd: Orr might drop DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince’s “Summertime” or A Tribe Called Quest’s “Electric Relaxation,” while Smudge’s playlist ranges from Public Enemy to ZZ Top.

The bearded Smudge, who looks like a member of a metal band, and the slight, stylish Orr appear to be the classic odd couple — “I’m the straight white DJ and he’s the gay black DJ,” Smudge jokes — but you can hear just how much fun they have playing off each other. They were first paired at the Rock and Roll Hotel in 2008 and have worked together since. Their primary gigs are elsewhere: Orr regularly spins at Cobalt, where the Washington Blade named him “Best DJ,” and in New York City; Smudge holds down the main room at Eighteenth Street Lounge on Saturday nights but also pops up at Velvet Lounge and Little Miss Whiskey’s.

When they get together on Sundays, magic happens. Their retro jams elicit some dancing, though most people are content to grab a seat, gab and flirt. The atmosphere is comfortable — the fall 2011 expansion that merged Marvin’s rooftop with the deck at the neighboring (since closed) Blackbyrd Warehouse turned a long, narrow space into a wide terrace with two large bars, twice as many seats and standing room to spare. Throw in affordable cocktails and a lively crowd, and you’ve got an upscale, enjoyable summer party.

- Sleazy McQueen -
As owner of the record label Whiskey Disco, Sleazy McQueen has helped to give the ‘Nu-Disco’ scene an element of referential class. With remarkably well produced re-works and originals, the Sleazy sound combines the dirty fun of seventies funk with the hypnotic rhythms of deep house. As a dj, he has travelled from Asia to Europe, both Americas and a constant tour of the United States. His music productions have been licensed to over 100 releases, remixes & edits on labels worldwide, including, but not limited to; Bearfunk, Virgin, Compost, Paper Recordings, Siesta & Glenview Records.

Joe L has maintained a consistent presence on the house and disco circuit in DC for over 12 yrs. Responsible for the ELM and Hometown Heroes parties, his contribution to the dance scene has shifted from event promotion to maintaining his 5 year residency at PUSH and now Bump’nGrind. Expect everything from House, Disco, Funk, and sometimes breaks when this veteran takes to the decks.

- Keenan Orr -
Entranced by DC’s underground rave culture, Vienna, Va. native DJ Keenan (aka Keenan Orr) burst onto the area’s house music scene in the mid-nineties. In 2003, Orr began working at Metatacks Studios, the only studio in DC dedicated to Electronic Dance Music. Here, Orr became involved with XM Satellite Radio, where he and fellow DJ Dimitri Max hosted a show called “Launch Pad.” On air for two hours every Sunday night, Launch Pad was broadcasted to over four million listeners across the U.S. and Canada. Armed with the ability to read a crowd and plan accordingly, Orr is currently focusing on using music to bridge the gap between the splintered scene of DC. Bouncing from Chicago House, Baltimore Club, Electro, Disco and classics of the 80’s and 90’s, Orr has landed residencies at a number of clubs around the city, including Cobalt, Marvin, and Rock and Roll Hotel. In 2010, DJ Keenan was named the DC DJ of the year by Washington City Paper.
