We’ve got DC music for you to check out every night this week. Why stay home?
Galaxy Hut has a killer beer selection and two DC bands worth checking out tonight. Passing Phases are formerly known as Glue Factory, and Mildewdz features members of Jumpin’ Jupiter, United Mutation and DT & The Shakes covering Flamin Groovies, MC5 and more.
This Tuesday night bill at the Black Cat Backstage is a total slam dunk. Sara Curtin and her eponymous band are vets of our Kennedy Center Millennium Stage series, and this will be their final show before Curtin welcomes her twins into the world. Lauren Calve has also played our Millennium Stage series as a core member of Run Come See and is a powerful solo artist in her own right. And we still adore Honey‘s unmissable tune “F*ckboys”.
Trumpeter Joe Herrera pops up everywhere around DC, playing with See-I, The Harry Bells, Eastern Standard Time and countless jazz groups small and large. This Wednesday he leads his quartet called Remix in a special Halloween Monster Mash-Up set at Blues Alley.
Here’s what you do: text your friends and tell them you have a cool under the radar spot for happy hour on Thursday. Meet them at the Luce Center sandwiched between the Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian American Art Museum at 6 PM, buy a round of drinks and enjoy the neo-soul sounds of Jenna Camille.
