The members of Dizzy Miss Lizzie’s Roadside Revue have entertained local theater audiences with a popular Fringe show about the reclusive Brontë sisters and raucous musical adaptations of classic stories like The Oresteia. But the theatrical side of the Roadside Revue has been on hiatus for more than a year while its founders, Debra Buonaccorsi and Steve McWilliams, focus on their roots rock act, the Hummingbyrds. Sprinkled among their covers of Everly Brothers and Tom Petty tracks are string-heavy, folk-tinged originals influenced by Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris. Tonight, the Hummingbyrds join a group of other local songwriters to celebrate the first anniversary of Georgetown Americana venue Gypsy Sally’s. The Hummingbyrds sound a bit somber, but accompanying acts like Jonny Grave and Justin Trawick will lift moods with their driving roots-music sets. Expect to leave your table and flutter your wyngs to the dance floor. The performance begins at 8 p.m. at Gypsy Sally’s, 3401 K St. NW. $10–$14. (202) 333-7700. gypsysallys.com.
