Infamous Stringdusters, Oregon Hill Funk All Stars, No BS Brass Band, DJ Williams Projekt

Lots of local bands this weekend as everyone stays close to home for the Easter holiday. No BS! Brass Band will be at The Camel with M Law and the Modern Prophets of Jazz. Show starts at 9 and it's $7 to get in.

Over at Tobacco Company Friday night, DJ Williams Projekt will funk you up. Show starts at 9 and there is no cover. You can check out their full set from the Canal Club on 3/1 here. That balding dude with the beard and glasses is totally getting down. At about 3 minutes, our cameraman leave balding, bearded, glasses dude behind and hits the front of the stage.

Three Sheets to the Wind will be tearing up The National Friday night as much as a yacht rock cover band can tear things up. OK, maybe they'll just be smoothing your ass over. They'll do a set of Hall & Oates' greatest hits and then a set of Yacht Rock greatest hits. Sweater Band will open and the whole thing gets under way at 7 PM with doors and 8 PM with music. Tix are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Here's Hall & Oates doing "Adult Education" live in 1984 with the great GE Smith in the band.

If you are tripping on Friday night, go immediately to Cary St. Cafe to see King Solomon's Marbles, the Grateful Dead cover band. The show will start at 10 and it's $7 to get in.

Saturday night, bluegrass band The Infamous Stringdusters will perform for your pleasure at The National. Doors open at 7, show starts at 8. Whitehorse is opening. Here they are in DC last year. This ain't your granddads bluegrass. This is kinda scary.

If you are looking to do a non-traditional Easter brunch on Sunday, get the funk out with the Funky Brunch at The Camel. Brunch will be served from 11 AM to 5 PM and the funk will be served by The Oregon Hill Funk All Stars staring at 2 PM.

I'm off to see if my NCAA Basketball pool pick (Indiana) can pull it out. I'll leave you with Chewbacca jamming to Phish:

Have a great weekend!
