And the winners are…

The Best Venue award went to Howard Theatre for the third consecutive year. Because of this, the U Street corridor jewel was inducted into The Fab Awards Hall of Fame, joining DJ Quicksilva.

Founder of Howard Theatre, Chip Ellis, accepted the award and spoke about the importance of Howard Theatre. Chip told the crowd that D.C. has to remind people that Howard Theatre is just as important as the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, especially because it opened 25 years earlier. Also, many acts that claimed they were discovered at the Apollo, played the Howard first.

AJ said that although Unique Society hasn’t been throwing parties that long in D.C., they are proud that they have successfully resurrected the day party in the District.

It took only 30 votes for DJ Heat to win DJ of the Year for the second year in a row. Last year, Heat became the first female deejay to win the coveted award. The radio personality told the intimate gathering that she’s been deejaying since the age of 13, and is excited to represent female deejays in such a male dominated field.
