One of the D.C. area’s earliest Irish folk revival bands, the Hags, stages its second annual reunion show tonight. Around a dozen musicians and singers were Hags at one time or another, but this evening’s cast features only some of those legends: Debi Smith (pictured), Grace Griffith, Ivy Harper, and Terry O’Neill. The re-constituted Hags will revisit a hefty portion of their old repertoire, but also plan to include a few new items. Smith starts the evening with a set of Irish folk songs, and Griffith’s trio Connemara presents Irish and Scottish tunes on guitar, fiddle, voice, and harp. At 8 p.m. at the Birchmere, 3901 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria. $12.50. (703) 549-5919. (Ken Roseman)
