I never thought I’d see Paris Hilton do anything live, let alone DJ. But curiosity sometimes makes us do crazy things, and I found myself among the EDM faithful at Echostage on Friday night, waiting for the hotel heiress-turned-turntablist to take the stage. The wait for Hilton to arrive was an extended one, leaving patrons ample time to [...]

The D.C. area is already home to the United States' largest Ethiopian population, but this week brings a surge of Ethiopian culture thanks to the 30th Ethiopian Sports Federation in North America (ESFNA) Tournament that runs through July 6.
