The benevolent All-New Genetically Altered Jug Band is not exactly what I hoped it to be. I was thrilled that I might be writing about one of the Sci-Fi Channel’s bio-terror quickie films or one of those plastic-surgery-gone-awry shows on Discovery Health. Alas, there will be no screenings of DinoCroc or Trash Can of Skin contemporaries. ANGAJB is, in fact, a real jug band, a jug band with a flower-print-shirt-to-band-member ratio of 3:4. And band members Special Ed (banjo, guitar, vocals), Rockin’ Ron (washboard, percussion), Gutbucketeer (washtub bass), and the ominously nicknamed Bags (trumpet, vocals) are available to play at your picnic, block party, zany wedding proposal, zany wedding, or divorce proceedings. The ANGAJB plays at 6:30 p.m. at the National Zoo, 3001 Connecticut Ave. NW. Free. (202) 673-4717. (Andrew Earles)
