CONCERT SCENE


A big thank you to all The Scene Bisnow friends who joined us at The Park at Fourteenth last night for one of the great parties of the year! You'll see our coverage in tomorrow's issue. Meanwhile, don't forget to check out hottest weekend spots in the "Where to be Scene" section of each Thursday's edition.

 

You deserve more than just an iPod playlist for your Metro to work. Washington has its fair share of halls and nightclubs, so we've compiled a concert guide to keep you jammin' into the New Year.

 

CONSTITUTION HALL (1776 D St. NW)

No one knows how to rock like the Daughters of the American Revolution. Their hall is an all-seated venue that draws a wide variety of acts. More intimate than the Verizon Center but with a bigger name than The Black Cat, Constitution Hall is a happy medium. Located near the State Department so you can pregame with Condi.

UPCOMING SHOWS:
Oct. 20th Jason Mraz, 7:30pm
Oct. 22nd Aretha Franklin, 8pm
Nov. 10th Kings of Leon, 7pm
Nov. 11th & 12th Smashing Pumpkins, 8pm
Dec. 9th John Legend, 8pm

 

THE BLACK CAT (1811 14th St. NW)

U Street isn't just about jazz. The Black Cat offers DC's truest underground music scene. See bands you haven't heard of yet and plenty you'll never hear of again. Comprised of 3 different rooms with full service bars so you can easily grab a Red Stripe before moshing.

UPCOMING SHOWS:
Oct. 21st The Aggrolites, Everybody Out!, 8pm
Oct. 26th Little Brother, Dirty Water, 8pm
Nov. 7th The Gutter Twins, Afterhours, 9pm
Dec. 29th The Damned, Theo and the Skyscrapers, Electric Frankenstein, 8pm

 

LINCOLN THEATRE (1215 U St. NW)

This historic 1,250 seat venue has seen its fair share of all-time greats. Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, and Ella Fitzgerald have all graced the stage. It continues that fine tradition with a wide-range of musicians and comedians.

UPCOMING SHOWS:
Oct. 25th and 26th Dakshina Dance Company, 8pm
Nov. 13th Anthony Hamilton, 8pm
Dec. 12th Artie Lange, 8pm

 

9:30 CLUB (815 V St. NW)

Quite possibly DC's hottest music spot, the 9:30 Club routinely packs its small, all-standing floor. Acts big and small walk through the doors, and scalping tickets is a must when your favorite band sells out in 6 minutes. (Dsclaimer: Scalping tickets is against the law and not a victimless crime. Ticketmaster's children have to eat too, you know.)

UPCOMING SHOWS:
Oct. 18th Cold War Kids, 8pm
Oct. 23rd-25th The Black Crowes, 8pm (7pm Thurs.)
Oct. 29th-30th Slightly Stoopid, 7pm
Nov. 28th They Might Be Giants, 8pm
Dec. 1st & 2nd Vampire Weekend, 7pm

 

VERIZON CENTER (601 F St. NW)

It's a sports arena, so be prepared for a cavernous space. It may be the only place to catch huge acts, but from the nosebleeds, Springsteen may as well be a roadie with an American flag bandana tucked in his back pocket.

UPCOMING SHOWS:
Oct. 31st Coldplay, 7:30pm
Nov 3rd The Who, 8pm
Nov 20th The Eagles, 7:30
Dec. 14th Trans Siberian Orchestra, 3pm & 7:30pm


WHERE TO BE SCENE TONIGHT
 

TONIGHT:
CELEBRITY DJ SAMANTH RONSON AT LOTUS (1420 K St. NW): Get there early to dance the night away—just don't say anything bad about Ronson's gal pal, Lindsey Lohan.

FREESTYLE FRIDAY:
DINNER AT TABAK (1336 U St. NW): Global warming has blessed us with terrific fall weather, so take advantage on this Mediterranean bistro's open-air atrium. For more beatiful evenings, put down the compact fluorescent bulb and get outside.

LIVE SATURDAY NIGHT:
MODELS AND BOTTLES (Sun Lounge, 1219 Connecticut Ave NW): In the words of R. Kelly: "You see I order one bottle, then I [enjoy the company of] one model/Then I order more bottles, now I got more models."

LAZY SUNDAY:
LATE BRUNCH AT TOWN HALL (2218 Wisconsin Ave.): Afterwards walk directly across the street to Breadsoda for billiards and the 'Skins game at 4:15. Their Happy Hour is seven days a week. http://www.breadsoda.com/

CHILL FLICK o' the Week: Oliver Stone's riotous comedy, "W." We wonder who will star in the sequel, "O."
