Yesterday's posting about the "Led Zeppelin Played Here" screening should have read December 11 at the Shaw Library -NOT December 7. The wrong date may have appeared in your email, but it is corrected now on DC ROCKS' site.
"Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true..." indeed.

Richard M. Nixon was inaugurated president. The Beatles checked out their new basement studio at Apple, and Joe Namath made the cover of Sports Illustrated.
What might have happened at the Wheaton Youth Center?
Ask local film maker Jeff Krulik, or better yet, go see the product of his quest for the Truth. "Led Zeppelin Played Here" will be screened at the Shaw library NEXT Wednesday, Dec 11 at 7 p.m., or at the Takoma Park Community Center Thursday Dec 12 at 7:30 p.m. Both screenings are free.

This Thursday you may or may not find yourself sitting down with a bunch of people, drinking and eating and laughing. Or you might find yourself sitting with well meaning relatives, resisting the urge to scream or, in quiet desperation, steal a glance at your time piece.

Too much going on this weekend as usual. I'm still trying to get to Gypsy Sally's in Georgetown; everyone I know that has gone there really likes the place for live music. This Saturday David Kitchen will be in the house with a great line up: Jack O'Dell on drums, Anthony Pirog on guitar, Jon Combs on bass and Ariel Francis on keys. David's a very talented songwriter and musician, and doesn't get to play his own music as much as I wish he could. David's opening for Randy Thompson- another gifted local whose band includes his son (an amazing guitar player according to David) and fiddle player Ricky Simpkins who also plays with Emmy Lou Harris and Robert Plant. Check out this new club and all this music for just $12.
Film maker and musician Rohit Colin Rao will be going solo with his indie rock sound at the Velvet Lounge this Saturday. Rohit's a busy guy. His award winning full length independent film "Utrasonic" was an all local production, shot here in DC and made with a DSLR camera. Rojit co-wrote the script, produced and directed this project, and made the movie as soon as he could afford that camera. He creates websites by day and still has time to play guitar- and- he's planning on getting a new album out next spring. The Velvet Lounge is a place where you can meet a happening guy like Mr Rao. No back stage pass required.

This poster is not exaggerating. Two of the best guitar players I know in this burg are on the same bill at JVs Friday. And bass player, Claude Arthur plus Jack O' Dell on drums? Someone call the fire department- JVs will be smoking.
