Hometown Sounds is your only source for quality #DCmusic every single day. As is our custom, here are our live music picks for the coming week.
We are fully into tonight‘s Fort Reno lineup. Sara Curtin has graced our Millennium Stage series, Honey capped off our last podcast with the superfun song “F*ckboys” and Tired all the Time rock out with “quality solutions for client demands in a dystopian world”. As always, the fun starts at 7:15 PM.
We can’t say it any better than Capitol Lab Band, a 17-piece big band that plays originals by band members and hits from the modern repertoire. “There are only 2 options for your Tuesday night entertainment. Get rained out with thousands of strangers at the All Star game, or stay cool and dry while eating a delicious dinner and listening to big band jazz. We happen to think our option is better.” That’s 7:30 PM at Mr. Henry’s on Capitol Hill.
Drink coffee after dinner and stay up laaaaate on a weeknight to celebrate the release of the new EP Cissy by DC’s beloved troubadour Seán Barna at Comet Ping Pong this Wednesday night as part of their Scorched Earth Summer Series. Buy this now because you only have two days to learn all the words for singing along. You also get a taste of the San Diego music life with touring band The Donkeys.
The lineup for this Thursday’s Night of 1000 Cakes at Fort Reno was blank for a while, leading to much speculation. Now the full list is posted, and it’s definitely not the usual 3 band bill. Come see what Taffety Punk Theatre Company, Jerry Busher, DC Public Library, Chris Richards, John Davis, Betsy Wright, Jason Hutto, DJ Baby Alcatraz and more will do to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the prolific summer concert series.
