There’s only 3 days of fun to be had before the weekend hits. Make them count by checking out our DC music picks this week!
The open mic night at Clarendon’s Iota was the gold standard for many years. Though the legendary club is no more, the free-for-all’s final host Alex The Red Parez keeps the spirit alive at Rhodeside Grill down the street in Arlington. Two signups at 7:30 and 10 PM if you’ve got a song or two inside you, and don’t miss this week’s featured artist Andrew Pfeiff of reggae bane FeelFree.
The Black Cat Backstage remains one of the best spots hosting DC rock bands of all styles. Thursday night is a 3 band bill with psychedelic explorers FuzzQueen, art-rock songwriting from Sam Cooper & The Sleepwalkers and classic post-punk from Social Station.
