BBQ Street Jazz Flower Children and More
Once upon a time when I was expecting my first child, it wasn't pickles and ice cream I craved so much as baby back ribs in a sweet and spicy sauce that was worth the drive to Richmond. The BBQ hunt is an ongoing adventure, and I haven't tried Acre 121, but they advertise low country BBQ and live music in Columbia Heights. This Saturday night the Bumper Jacksons are throwing a CD party complete with burlesque dancing. Not sure how many young bands are out there doing "traditional street jazz, ragtime and pre-war country," but this sounds like a real show. Cover $10 and a free CD at the door. 9 pm
Meanwhile up at Clyde's in Chevy Chase, the ever reliable Vi-Kings are inviting you out to their summer party to get everyone into that beach-ey frame of mind. Their musical energy is dedicated to bringing back things psychedelic and that flower power decade. No cover.
And look for Doug Stevenson and the Spades tuning up and honky-tonking in the beer box alcove which constitutes being on stage at the Quarry House. This signless joint is quite literally underneath it all on the corner of Bonifant and Georgia in downtown Silver Spring. Free.
