Welcome to your daily Hit List featuring the shows, openings, and ritual gatherings that will set your social dial to MAX FUN.

And if you don’t dig our picks, there are tons of other events to check out on BYT AGENDA (side note: promoters/venues: posting events on AGENDA is free and open to all-so please use it. )

  • Ava Luna is playing DC9, which means you should probably go and get ready for some soulful electro tunes. (The song below is so good. So good.)
  • Grammy award winners / Smithsonian Folkways recording artists Max Baca and Los Texmaniacs are the new worldwide ambassadors of Texas Roots music and tonight they play The Hamilton. Sweeeeeet.
  • Of course I am always in support of wizardry, so I highly suggest heading to Black Cat for Muggle Mondays. Tonight they’ll be showing Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (so basically badass snakes and shit) PLUS they’ll have butterbeer specials.
  • Emeli Sandé, songwriter extraordinaire (Rihanna and Alicia Keys, anyone??) is playing Howard Theatre tonight:
  • The free exhibit InstantDC just opened at Vivid Solutions Gallery and features instant photos from some very talented local photographers. Definitely something to keep on your evening’s radar.
