To put on a house show in D.C. is to invite a pitched battle with cranky neighbors, exhausted moms, and police officers who will remain unmoved by your passionate attempts to “keep the scene alive” and have every right to tell you and your friends to shut up. And to book one on a Tuesday is really asking for some pain.
But the Lighthouse—on 1421 Buchanan St. NW—is willing to try it anyway.
Tonight they’ll be hosting a mammoth five-band bill featuring Baltimore’s excellent traveling drum circle Teeth Mountain as well as Yellow Crystal Stars, Prince Rama, Family of Love. And last but not least, Dickhearse.
Music starts at 7 p.m. and lasts until the neighbors’ patience is exhausted.
