I was at a back yard party with a live band recently, and I sat next to a man who was lamenting the lack of music in the DC area. (Boy, did he pick the wrong seat!) He was immediately supplied with a DC ROCKS lecture and quite possibly a card. But it is true- music might be harder to find if you are of a certain age that grew up with newspapers in the hand and no internet. Or then again maybe you just aren't looking in the right place.
This Friday King Soul is playing at a venue I was unaware of- Seventh Street Landing. It's a relatively new waterside park in Southwest DC where you can find farmer's markets, art markets and live music, too. Set times run from 6-8:30 p.m.
Then on Saturday The Loggers are reconvening at Parker's in Bethesda. Go up and talk to those guys, and you'll learn a lot about what small town Bethesda used to be like, and if you remember Bethesda in the Sixties and Seventies, you'll be hearing familiar tunes.
Or if you prefer a slightly more urban venue, psychedelia garage style Blankus Larry and friends will be squirreled away in the back of Comet Ping Pong on Connecticut Avenue. 10 p.m. Saturday.
One thing that hasn't changed with the internet is rock posters. An art form in itself.
