The impact from D.C’s notorious parties and DJs of 90’s rave revolution were felt near and far. Artists such as Deep Dish, Scott Henry and Charles Feelgood were on the tip of the tongue of your average party kid. The legendary party ‘Buzz’ was named “best party” four years in a row by URB Magazine. The same holds true today. With a vibrant club world and the uniquely diverse underground, Washington, D.C still holds the pulse of the domestic dance community. Shades of house, techno, breaks, bass and rave keep the mixed dance-floors bumping weekly. We’re honored to host a cross spectrum of D.C’s veteran contributors for the next installment of the As You Like It / Fault Radio’s Coast to Coast sessions. As You Like It hopes to contribute to maintaining a domestic network, connecting us now and building toward a post isolation world. Take a moment and learn about each of the of our guests and join us August 23, on FaultRadio.com.
For this month’s edition of AYLI Coast to Coast, the artists will be accepting tips to their personal Venmo accounts. The artists have decided to donate 50% of all tips collected to be split evenly between two organizations:
SYMAL — a DC based organization that services the needs of LGBTQ youth by creating leadership development opportunities, after-school programs, and counseling services to empower them and educate their local community.
The Innocence Project — the goal of this organization is to exonerate the wrongly convicted through DNA testing and reform the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.

We know that it’s a trying time for everyone’s finances and especially for the nightlife community who rely on the box office to cover expenses. If you’re able, please donate to the artists and/or As You Like It via PayPal firstname.lastname@example.org. Each artist’s Venmo details are listed above. Any amount will help, $1, $3 or $20.
