There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
Update: shows postponed to March 12 and 13.
In the same way you can trace a surfeit of September birthdays to the whoopee-facilitating December chill, you can also attribute most births in May 1972 to the release, the previous fall, of Al Green Gets Next to You. The record, with its four gold singles, including “Tired of Being Alone” and the title-negating “I Can’t Get Next to You,” established Green as a sexified churchman still capable of hard-groove funk—and moved him away from the white-group covers that stuck out on his first record. (For those keeping score, he still covered a Doors song.) Hopeful fornicators will no doubt find the confluence of snow and Green an adequate excuse for defiling the cab on the way home from Constitution Hall.
AL GREEN PERFORMS AT 8 P.M. AT DAR CONSTITUTION HALL, 1776 D ST. NW. $70. (202) 628-4780.
