There’s something about that feeling you get when you’re with your people, singing your favorite R&B songs, reminiscing and shaking off the stress of a long week. Something that shouldn’t be limited to just a section of a DJ’s set. On this Saturday, April 20, The Set is coming to Dallas with one rule: All R&B, All Night.
The Set is a fast-growing D.C.-based event series that regularly brings together 800 young Black professionals and R&B music lovers over a carefully curated mix of R&B from the 80s, 90s, 2000s, and today. Now, as it launches its national tour, it has its sights set right here on Dallas, Texas.
A collaboration between Usual Suspectz, The Wave, and In Da Booth, The Set is one of the few events that provides R&B vibes exclusively, without limiting itself to a specific decade. Whereas some R&B parties have a tendency to highlight other genres throughout the evening, this one delivers on its promise, giving R&B the attention the genre deserves.
And if you weren’t sure about your attendance yet, The Set brought in Dallas’ very own DJ NiteCrawler to administer the vibes for the evening. As one of the best DJ’s in both Dallas and Washington, D.C., you can be sure that you and your people will be singing all night long.
If you haven’t heard, NiteCrawler don’t miss. Adjust your notes, if necessary.
In times like these, we all could use more good times and more of the right kinds of vibes from both our people and our experiences. We work too hard and sacrifice too much for anything less.
Besides, if it don’t feel like a 90s R&B song, do we even want it?
Gather your people and head to RBC this Saturday for the best R&B experience the city has seen yet. Tickets are only $10 and can be found HERE.
