Take a core of David Kitchen (lead guitar, rhythm guitar, vocals), Royce Burton (rhythm guitar, vocals, diatonic harmonica, chromatic harmonica), and Julie Edgeworth (lead guitar, rhythm guitar, vocals, keyboards), add a slew of other D.C.-area roots-music vets (Eric Rose, Dave O’Brien, Nick Ruggieri, “Big” Al Sevilla, and Seth Kibel), and what do you get? A band called American Song, whose eclectic repertoire includes everything from vintage country hits to rock ‘n’ roll and pop standards. American Song’s demo CD is a good (albeit brief) sampler of its wares: the three-part harmonies on “Runnin’ Wild” are rich and full, and Edgeworth brings a sexy blues presence to “Red Red Robin.” There’s also a sweet rendition of “Mona Lisa.” American Song’s tour of nifty vintage Americana begins tonight at 8:30 p.m. at IOTA, 2832 Wilson Blvd., Arlington. $7. (703) 522-8340. (Ken Roseman)
