You’ve read our newspaper. You’ve commented on our blogs. You’ve craft faired at our craft fair. But have you been to our shows?

This Friday, Washington City Paper is hosting the fall edition of our regular all-ages concert series with the Luce Foundation Center at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and if you’ll suffer us a little back-patting, our local lineup is on point.

On the docket is Laughing Man, a quartet with a tight, experimental new EP out (Be Black Baby, which we reviewed in our Oct. 10 issue) and a sound that culls from the worlds of R&B, math rock, and post-punk; and Furniteur, whose synthy brand of space disco is made for moody head-bobbing in headphones or on a dance floor.

Lucky for you (and for us, and for the bands), Atlas Brew Works will be doling out free samples of its D.C.-made craft beers. If tiny tastings aren’t enough to satisfy your post-work appetite, you can hang out by the cash bar for a full selection of snacks and drinks.

Halloween costumes are not necessary, nor particularly encouraged, but will be tolerated. The Luce Unplugged show starts at 6 p.m. this Friday, Oct. 24, in the Luce Foundation Center on the top floor of the American Art Museum. RSVP on Facebook and say hey at the show!
