Hometown Sounds is taking a short breather next week, so today we’ve got a bonus size lineup of #DCmusic picks for your holiday weekend.
Head up to College Park’s MilkBoy ArtHouse tonight for a night of modern bluegrass and folk music. By And By describe their sound as “Arms Wide Open Bluegrass & Americana”, and Rock Creek Revival are right up that alley too.
H St. NE’s Rock & Roll Hotel has a strong lineup of DC indie rock Saturday evening. You should already know Paperhaus from their many years of hosting DCDIT house shows. Park Snakes channel goth and post-punk vibes, while Bacchae represent the agitated punk youth.
On July 4th Union Stage hosts an independent music and skate festival called either Brokechella or Moechella. We’re not quite sure. But you can get a preview of the music Sunday evening at Dew Drop Inn from a wide swath of the DC music scene, including Karen Culi, +E, Mr. Daywalker and a new band called Barefoot Lefty.
The 50th anniversary Fort Reno season kicks off Monday evening at 7:30 with a fantastic lineup of Lotion Princess, Time is Fire and Des Demonas. Invite your coolest friends to check out DC’s premiere outdoor music series.
There was a time when go-go music was pushed out of DC’s city limits. Now you can hear that distinctive go-go beat at one of the most swank venues in DC, The Hamilton. Tuesday night the lineup of Rare Essence featuring Jas Funk and E.U. featuring Sugar Bear unites two of the longest running go-go acts for a night of true DC satisfaction.
Come on, it’s the Fourth! Go watch fireworks!
