It’s well known that DC clears out on holiday weekends such as this one. If you’re lucky enough to stay in town, here’s some #DCmusic to check out!
We love live music outdoors the most, and its season is finally here. Saturday night is the season opener of the monthly Petworth Jazz Project, on the steps of the Petworth Rec Center. Grab a bite from the BBQ food truck and enjoy jazz pianist Federico Gonzalez Peña.
You always get your money’s worth at Slash Run and then some. Sunday night the burger joint hosts two out of town bands, The Ok-Ok’s and Sleepy Limbs, paired with two DC area indie rock bands, The Mild Animals and Makeup Girl.
Starr Hill Brewery and Songbyrd host a ska band Monday night, but they’re not telling us the band’s name. Could it be The Pietasters? Kill Lincoln? Eastern Standard Time? Ska is punk’s happier, brassier cousin and we are quite pleased the genre continues to thrive past its too-brief heyday. It won’t cost you nothing to find out who the band is, so don’t miss out.
