We know it’s been a tough week for some of you. Cold, rainy, frustrating, bleak. Live music is the balm for your souls. Here are our #DCmusic picks for the weekend.
The Wharf’s Pearl Street Warehouse is doing the most to fill the void left by last year’s closure of Iota. Tonight a couple of veteran Americana rock bands grace their stage, The Walkaways and Roof Beams, as part of the Smithsonian Year of Music.
In 2017 we were honored to host Grammy-nominated hip-hop legend Kokayi on the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage. Now in 2019 he’s back on the Terrace Gallery stage as part of the #KenCenHipHop Festival this Saturday night for two sets. Do not miss this fantastic opportunity to see one of DC’s finest beatsmiths and rappers.
The studio and practice space 7DrumCity has become one of the most important focus points of the DC music community. Sunday at the Wharf’s Union Stage they host a Pop-Up Festival with an astounding 11 bands affiliated with the studio and its potluck jams and Flashband showcases, including Lovejet, Higher Numbers, The OSYX, Smokin’ On Planes and more. If you’re a musician looking to get more involved, you can’t miss this event.
