Yes, Virginia, There Is a Maryland
It's a native thing. If you grew up in Virginia you think that Maryland is a scary place to navigate. Conversely, if you grew up in Maryland, it's Virginia that confounds the GPS of the mind.(Washington natives can go either way although sometimes a rare bi-state phobia will set in resulting in a fear of leaving the block.)
For those of you who have managed to triumph over panic-or perhaps own a phone with the equivalent tracking skills of Sakagawea- there are two shows- one in each state to ponder this Friday.
First off Roaddog (not your father's cover band) will be rocking the doors off El Puento de Oro in Wheaton, Maryland.
If the thought of Wheaton makes you weak at the knees, then check out Clare and Don's Beach Shack in Falls Church, Virginia. The Black Muddy River Band brings the Dead back alive, and that's gotta be better than those Red Rock cassette tapes some of you still have hanging around.
Either way, don't let bi-state phobia get the better of you. Get out and support our local music scene whether it's to the East or West...just remember DC is best.
