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.)
- Jason Boland & The Stragglers / Cody Canada and The Departed are playing at The Hamilton if you want to inject some country music into your life and eat some delicious food at the same time.
- Kamyar Arsani, Mosno Al Moseeki, and Special K Experience are all at Bossa Bistro and Lounge for a night of poetry and Persian Indie Folk music. I have never listened to Persian Indie Folk music, but now I feel the desperate need to google it.
- The French Embassy is showing a handful of French animated shorts in honor of the DC Francophonie Cultural Festival. Please tell me there will be French New Wave cartoons. I want nothing more.
- 9:30 Club presents Hermitude is at U Street Music Hall. You all know how we feel about UHall, so make sure you show them a little love this week in celebration of their fifth birthday.
- G. Love & Special Sauce and Matt Costa are playing at 9:30 Club. It’s been eight years since their last live performance, so if you miss them tonight, it might be a while until you seem them again.
- The Summercamp Show is at the Wonderland Ballroom. Relive all your wonderful (or horrifying) camp memories! Hopefully Jason doesn’t show up. He’s got a lot of feelings about summer camp.
- Spies & Wine: Fakes, Frauds and Fun is happening at the International Spy Museum. Learn about faking documents, faking wines, and CIA drinking tips. It’s gonna be a boozy good time.
- British Indie Rock band Catfish and the Bottlemen are at DC9, but unfortunately it’s already sold out.
- Rocco Deluca, Johnathan Thomas Wright, and Old Man are playing at Black Cat. I have no idea who Rocco Deluca is but their music video for “Colors of the Cold” is kind of cool.
