“Punk-adjacent” songwriter Anna Connolly celebrates the release and vinyl pressing of her debut album After Thoughts tonight at Dew Drop Inn. Her live backing band features Teething Veils’ Hannah Burris, Don Godwin and Devin Ocampo of The Effects, and the evening’s bill also includes a solo set from Panini Girlfriend and Fugazi bassist Joe Lally with Jerry Busher and Anthony Pirog. So much punk cred at this show.
Come on, do you really need us to tell you to go to the rescheduled H Street Festival on Saturday? The Rock & Roll Hotel hosts their annual Brodown Throwdown event featuring Mystery Friends, Loi Loi, Ardamus and Of Tomorrow, while the Pie Shop hosts Frass Green, VVOVVEE and more.
On Sunday the Dew Drop Inn hosts a day long festival of awesome DMV music to support Rock The Vote’s efforts in the upcoming election, which you may have heard is rather important. Come rock out with FuzzQueen, Thaylobleu, Pagan Reagan, Bal Boheme, Flowerbomb and a whole lot more.
