DC music lovers, welcome to our brand new twice-weekly feature Don’t Stay Home. There are many great roundups of live music in DC, but none give the proper love to actual #DCmusic that we think our town deserves. As always, Hometown Sounds gives you all the DC music and nothing but. Here are the shows and events we recommend this weekend:
Have you made it to the new Pearl Street Warehouse yet? Friday night is a great opportunity to check out The Wharf’s cozy new venue with Aztec Sun bringing the party funk and a not-to-be-missed opening set from jazz-gogo mashup band The JoGo Project.
Love & Solidarity Collective, formerly the Lamont Street Collective, hosts a musical, visual and interactive arts experience called Heart Warming 2018 featuring Ocean Childe, Stephanie Mathias, Whitney Tallarico, Skaii, Skyline Hotel and house band allthebestkids. Plus handpoked tats by kate!
This pre-Valentine’s Day Sunday night is pretty quiet for live DC music, so we say head over to Politics & Prose at 5 PM to celebrate the release of the fifth annual volume of District Lines, their print-on-demand anthology of poetry, art, fiction and essays by DC-based contributors. Hear readings from some of the writers and get your copy signed.
