Summer camp relationships have an uncanny way of extending beyond camp boundaries. Some people make lifelong friendships, others marry—and some form jam bands. That’s the case with the McLovins, a Hartford, Conn., four-piece that started making music in 2009 after meeting at various local music camps. Since all four members have different tastes in music, their compositions vary from simple folk-rock arrangements like “Samson” to more meandering jams like “Tokyo Tea”; live shows are dotted with extended covers of Phish tracks and roots anthems like the Band’s “Up on Cripple Creek.” Read more >>> The McLovins perform with the Beirds at 8 p.m. at Gypsy Sally’s, 3401 K St. NW. $10–$14.
