We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?

When Carol Noonan sings “I will love you,” it’s a lock that the time-frame is “till the end,” but this non-Nashville country-rocker and her band can make such routine sentiments percolate, if not resonate. There are no twists on the new Noonan Building & Wrecking, but the septet does quite well by the straight-ahead. Noonan opens for the Austin Lounge Lizards at 8 p.m. at the Birchmere, 3901 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria. $15. (703) 549-5919. (Mark Jenkins)
