Confluence of Events

On this day, 1 year ago, I noted here that there was an unholy amount of good things to do in the DC area over this very weekend.

Here I am one year later about to write the same thing. What is it about this weekend that makes everyone schedule their awesome events during it? Could it be the last hurrah of summer?

This weekend we’ve got 3 album release parties and two festivals lined-up.

1. Tonight @ the Black Cat – the Soft Complex & Cedars album release concert – $10

2. Saturday night @ DC9 – the Two If By Sea album release concert – $10

Both of the above concerts featuring my adorable sister-in-law on Cello.

Then we’ve got –

3. Saturday night @ the Market 5 Gallery – the Curly & Rocket “Electricshow” release party that our boy Wayan pointed out – $20

Plus –

4. All day Saturday in B’More – The Virgin Festival featuring all kinds of festival circuit standards like the Chili Peppers, The Who, and Gnarls Barkley – $97.50! (outrageous!)

And then my pick for the winner of the weekend –

5. All day Saturday in Fredricksburg – The second annual Wall of Sound Festival featuring the best in underground American shoegazer – 23 bands for $10!
