Welcome to your daily Hit List featuring the shows, events, gatherings, and so on that will keep your social life slightly above average!
And if you’re not about anything we show you now, there are tons of other events to check out on our AGENDA (side note: promoters/venues: posting events in the AGENDA is free and open to all-so please use it.)
- Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will tear it up at Echostage with openers Letts. Go see this army of indie musicians get folky.
- Coming off his debut record Ratchet, Shamir will turn up U Street Music Hall with his own crazy brand of electro-disco. Read our interview with him HERE.
- Whiplash screens for free, outside as part of the Adams Morgan Movie Nights at the Marie Reed Elementary School Field.
- Plus if you’re out in Baltimore, Third Eye Blind will play an acoustic show that’s free if you pre-order their new album in-store at The Sound Garden. Once again, that’s Third Eye Blind at Sound Garden in 2015.
- The second annual “Hail to the V” celebrates some of the most accomplished women in DC’s food and beverage industry, with guests Hilda Staples, Aggie Chin, and more. Make sure to buy your tickets ahead of time.

- The Preservatory Project presents “an archive of the voices of the urban dance community” of DC and Maryland, if you want to become acquainted with the best dancing of the DMV. Plus it’s free!
- Or if you want to thrash, the Dillinger Escape Plan will tear down the house at Rock and Roll Hotel.
- Millennial Week is upon us, so if networking is more your style (because, you know, the economy) and you’re an entrepreneur, the StartUp Lounge will provide an excellent forum for engagement with other professionals and financial advisors.
- Speaking of Millenials, our very own Svetlana Legetic is giving the opening remarks at this very classy Urban Institute “Millenials and the Remaking of US Cities” event tonight. Stop by.
- If you’re hungry after a long day and want to learn how to cook a light summer meal (while turning those leftovers into an awesome meal the next day) Prequel will teach you just that.
- If none of that did it for you, consult our Your Best June round-up.
