4 Out of 5 Doctors Agree
There's a heck of a lot to do this weekend and for once it's kind of spread out- The Cutaways at Quarry tonight (see below) and a couple of bands tomorrow night.
(Unlike July 31 which I don't even want to talk about)
Anyway DC seems to be full of musical reunions/ re-inventions these days, but the 4 Out of 5 Doctor's show at Jammin Java is pure reunion with all four original members coming out. For those too young or with flickering memory synapses-the band was something of a pop sensation around here before they broke up in 1983. They got back together only once in 1991 for a show at the now defunct Bayou in Georgetown. This time The Doctors are celebrating their thirtieth anniversary with a show and a newly remastered CD. The music starts at 7- two sets- $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
And for those with leanings in a somewhat different direction- The Junkyard Saints will do their cool funky thing at Surf Club on Sunday as well.
Relax-see a band- see three- that's what summers are all about.
