DC Statehood Concert at Black Cat

Friday August 26 the Black Cat in DC is hosting a huge show to benefit the cause of DC statehood. Today, DC is considered a district not a state, so capital citizens have a representative in Congress that can not vote. All proceeds of the night go to DCVote.org to fight taxation without representation.

At 9pm the massive show starts with over 70 musicians. Boat Burning headlines the night, as they are a DC based "maximal minimalism" ensemble known for powerful, evocative music. One of my favorites Joshua Palace is also playing. Another DC area native, Joshua's new sound is neo-noir electronic soul.

Courthaus Social Anniversary

When the forgettable Velocity 5 announced it was leaving its Courthouse location, we had to wait years until Courthaus Social took over its spot in 2015. It was worth the wait, and worth checking out their first birthday party on Saturday May 21.

To celebrate, they are having their one year anniversary Haus party starting at noon on Saturday. They will have ten different breweries' beers at happy hour from 12pm to 7pm and live music starting at 10pm. Courthaus Social will continue their happy hour the following day and will last all day Sunday.
