Please Make It Stop
Taxes and Death. Here we go again. Nothing puts a pall on a weekend like the thought of sitting down with yourself, adding up what you are worth and forking part of that over to Uncle Sam (who we think might drink a bit despite his best intentions to take care of business). Still distractions abound this SATURDAY with a rather astounding mix of music on a single night -mostly for free.
Chopteeth brings its multinational groove to IOTA in Arlington with enough people in the band to make it a party wherever they go. Over in Bethesda there are two shows to check out: long time local rockers The Loggers plan to take over Parker's and for all you Dead heads, The Black Muddy River Band is over at the Mussell Bar taking no prisoners. If you want to go a little further afield, you'll find Cream inspired GHZ at Outta the Way Cafe in delightful downtown Derwood- well worth the drive if you can find it on the map. Last but certainly not least check out this hardcore line up featuring Scream playing a benefit at St Stephen's Church in Mt Pleasant:
All shows are tax free and non deductible unless you happen to be a band member. No cover at Outta the Way, Mussel Bar and Parker's. IOTA $15. Scream just $10- a benefit for DC Jobs With Justice so
if you donate more you can write it off next year.
