Robbin Thompson, Steve Bassett, The Atkinsons

Bit of a slow week as everyone recovers from the holidays or, as in my case, keeps the holidays going with more relatives this weekend.  Everything going on is going on Saturday night.

At The National on Saturday is friend and former bandmate of Bruce Springsteen, Robbin Thompson Band together with Steve Bassett.  Tix are $25 Reserved Orchestra, $20 Reserved Balcony, $20 GA standing adv/$25 day of show.  Doors open at 7, show starts at 8.  This evening will feature accoustic songs from The Robbin Thompson and Steve Bassett album “ Together “ and full band sets of music performed by The Robbin Thompson Band, Steve Bassett and several other guests musicians.  I would get there when the show starts so you don't miss anything.  Here's Robbin doing his song "Orange Moon" in Annandale VA this past July:

And here's Steve Bassett with the Mystic Soul Bubbas doing "Sweet Virginia Breeze":

Also on Saturday, Americana band The Atkinsons will perform at The Tobacco Company.  The show will start at 9:30 and is FREE.  Here's The Atkinsons performing a couple tunes at Cafe Diem in March of last year.

And that will about do it for this week.  Since we are a little bit short, here's Big Head Todd & The Monsters doing "Circle" on Letterman in the early 90's.

Have a great weekend!
