Craig David first captured hearts with his 2000 singles, the smooth “Fill Me In” and play-by-play serenade “7 Days” from his debut album Born To Do It. But David never planned on fading into total obscurity, remembered only as that one R&B guy from the early aughts. So, he created TS5, a performance series in which he plays more like a wedding DJ than a former star. It began a few years ago as a pre-party hosted at his Miami penthouse home, Tower Suite 5. Now, he takes his show on the road, performing sets as a DJ that feature everything from old school R&B anthems to house music, all while serving as the MC, singing and working the crowd. It’s a party you don’t want to miss. Read more >>> Craig David performs at 7 p.m. at U Street Music Hall, 1115 U St. NW. $20. (202) 588-1889. ustreetmusichall.com. (Jazmin Goodwin)
