New York City
Creative Collab Tour featuring Matthew Espinosa @ The Howard Theatre
$25 / $30
Jerrod Carmichael @ DC Improv
"The Carmichael Show" debuts August 26 on NBC, showcasing one of the most promising young talents in comedy. Jerrod comes from North Carolina, made his way to LA and conquered its comedy scene. He’s sharp, relaxed and plugged-in – the prototype for a next-generation stand-up comic. Jerrod headlined the club in 2014, and we’re happy to have him back this year.
Angie Stone @ The Howard Theatre
$42.50 / $50
If Angie Stone had her way, she'd sit down next to every single one of her fans and pour out her heart - and soul - to them. She'd empower them with hard-earned wisdom; lessons learned from her very own heartache and happiness, mistakes and triumphs that led her to three Grammy Award nominations, two Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards, and four Top 10 R&B albums (with her The Art of Love & War going all the way to number one). And with her new album, Rich Girl, the neo-soul songwriter has done just that, delivering a powerfully intimate collection of songs that wrap themselves around you like a warm embrace full of love and compassion, strength and wit. "I spent a lot of time over the past few years working with other people, writing with them, working with producers. And then one day I realized that while I was doing everything I could to help them succeed and watching them grow, I was losing pieces of myself in the process." she explains "I shaved a lot of my originality off when merging with so many other people. Fans weren't getting Angie Stone. They were getting Angie and so-and-so. I knew I had to get back to my own music and skills. It's time for Angie to do Angie." That journey returned Stone to her songwriting roots, determined to record an album where making great music and sharing her soul were the only things that mattered.
Loose Ends feat. Jane Eugene @ The Howard Theatre
$30 / $35
One of the top British dance and urban contemporary trios in the early '80s, Loose Ends formed in London. They were originally called Loose End, and included Carl McIntosh, Jane Eugene, and Steve Nichol. Virgin signed them in 1981, and their debut was written by Chris and Eddie Amoo of the Real Thing. The group changed its name to Loose Ends in 1983, and signed with MCA in America in 1984. Their single "Hanging on a String (Contemplating)" topped the R&B charts in 1985, and they repeated that achievement in 1986 with "Slow Down." Their last hit was "Watching You" in 1988, which reached number two. The group shuffled its lineup in 1990 for the release of Look How Long, with McIntosh now joined by Linda Carriere and Sunay Suleyman. McIntosh also produced several artists, notably Caron Wheeler.
