Doin' It In the Park

By Rhome Anderson

Outdoor jams are a real summertime treat, and I'm not talking about the kind that involve pumping a stereo on your deck while the grill smokes and beers are quaffed (although that's a beautiful thing too). I'm talking about taking the boom from a great PA system and moving it outside, where breezes take the place of cigarette smoke and a light show is replaced by sunshine. It's where you can actually see the faces of your fellow dancers and strike up some conversation without shouting. It's where scenesters can share the energy of the music with folks that might normally ride a couch on a Saturday night, and where old club heads can bring their children into the mix.

We get this kind of jump-off in D.C. at occasional Meridian Hill Park festivals or the yearly Eastern Market Day. But for the second year in a row, BodyRock Productions is bringing it to Arlington this Saturday.

Summer Sessions 2 features nine hours of the metro area's hottest electronic DJs, including notables such as Christine Moritz and Juan from the house music duo East Coast Boogiemen.

This will probably be the last opportunity to sweat it out under the sun before a night of clubbing requires patronizing the coat check, so bring on the bottled water and comfortable sneakers.
