D.C. native Lida Husik may be among our most prolific musicians, but unfortunately for us she has usually birthed her creations elsewhere—New York and San Francisco—so we don’t see her here too often. Husik has recorded folk as Red Emma, space folk with the legendary Kramer, modern pop on Fly Stereophonic, and dreamy dance/electronica in collaboration with U.K. techno wizard Beaumont Hannant on Green Blue Fire and Evening at the Grange. Husik is in town for a month or more, making her next album on 14th Street. It will be “another electronic record, a dance record at WGNS.” Tonight’s show, in which her studio collaborators will back her, Husik says, will be a “fun, off-the-cuff gig” of “standards and old stuff,” rather than techno material. If only we could get her to stay put a little longer. With headliner Danielle Howle and opener Laconic Chamber at 8:30 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1831 14th St. NW. $5. (202) 667-7960. (JD)
