Let’s Look Back…at some fliers

Every month, Fatback throws down a nasty funk fest in honor of sweaty pork, and a lot goes into that. The right vibe. The best people. Power Jamz. The gear. The invitations. The BBQ sauce. The mixes. The blog posts. The pig snorts. The love. Etc. Etc. One thing we always do too, is make […]

Fatback Royalty: Aretha Franklin, The Queen Of Soul

At its roots, Fatback’s musical sensibilities lean heavily on funk and soul; a couple of pretty general terms that can conjure up many different ideas for many people. But on everyone’s Venn diagram, Aretha Franklin resides smack dab in the union of those two fantastic circles.

Two weeks till the Fatback 5 year blowout

With a mere two weeks to go until the final Fatback bash we have been spending every spare moment in training. Bacon in the morning. Bacon at night. Bacon toothpaste. Bacon underwear. Bacon weights in our shoes… you get the idea, BACON EVERYTHING. Last weekend the crew ventured out to a training camp deep […]

Fatback: The Last Bite

After five long years of bacon-infused, high-heart-rate dancing, the Fatback medical team has given us an ultimatum: cut back on the pork and partying or risk dying a deliciously, salty, sweaty, death on the dance floor.

Just for you DC.

This Saturday: Fatback Returns to its Roots at Dahlak!

We’re doing things a little different this month… Read on.
5 years ago, in a small Eritrean restaurant on U St called Dahlak, Fatback was born. Once a month, we’d clear the tables from the dining room, set up our turntables and dance until the windows fogged over. Drunk nightwalkers stumbling down from AdMo would peer […]

Happy New Year! It’s 2013!

Fatback Mix Vol. 49- Felines in Fir

Here’s a little something for your hips to work with through the holidays. Our old chums (James, Stevie, Michael, Otis…) left some familiar chestnuts, while some Fatback noobs dropped off some jams to make sure they got in before the New Year.
