DJ Jerome Farley

Native D.C. DJ returns to Town

DJ Jerome Farley returns to his native D.C. on Saturday when he will appear at Town (2009 8th St., N.W.).

Town is Farley’s favorite place to spin in the U.S. and he’s excited to be back, as the owner, Ed Bailey, tougher him how to DJ when he was a teenager.

“I’d hang out in the DJ booth and look over his shoulder,” Farley says.

Farley, who’s gay, will also be premiering a music video for Vanessa Mitchell’s new song, “Hope,” which he wrote and produced.

Doors open at 10 p.m. There is an $8 cover before 11 p.m. and $12 afterward. All attendees must be 21 or older.

New York DJ Michael Hades will open.

Inaya Day to spin at Cobalt

Recording artist Inaya Day will be at Cobalt (1639 R St., N.W.) on Saturday from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. with DJ Wayne G.

Not only does Day write for herself, but she has also written for artists such as Bootsie Collins, Randy Crawford and Missy Elliot.
