Success! You're on the list.

Well, they can’t all be good music nights. You could see Blondie, sure, at Fillmore Silver Spring for $48. Forty-eight! Yikes. And sadly, Mitch Winehouse (yup, father of Amy) has canceled his show at Blues Alley. If you’re looking for something arty and sexy, Snarky Puppy—-featuring a bunch of sidemen from the bands of Erykah Badu, Snoop Dogg, and others—-could be interesting (at Rock & Roll Hotel).

But fuck it: Just go see Arts Desk faves Cigarette. They’ve got a DIY show tonight.
