La La La Land
Is the news making you feel like plugging your ears and howling? Turn off the radio. "Throw out your TV" as John Prine likes to say. This weekend DC will rock. (And if you can't wait, The Thrillbillys start the shake down at JV's Thursday night. )
On Friday both Comet Ping Pong uptown
and the Velvet Lounge downtown have multiple bands going all night. See poster above for bands at Comet. See U Street for Purple Orange, Trajectories, Hello Dharma and Herschel Hoover, .
Saturday night? Good god y'all. The variety is amazing. Buddy Holly fans? Rave on at Bethesda Blues with multiple bands including Ruthie and the Wranglers, Billy Coulter, The Rock a Sonics and David Kitchen playing tribute to the day the music died.
Long hairs? One way out is The Allman Others at New Deal Cafe in Greenbelt.
Punk rockers? Find the mosh pit at IOTA.
And last but not least, Carnival season is well under way down South. Kick it in gear up here with Little Red and The Renegades. The fais-do-do happens at Hank Dietle's in quasi Bethesda on the Pike.
