The Holiday Weekend: Sunday and Monday

Holy Fuck By James Mejia

As the weekend winds to a close, the BBQ scene heats up and the shows start to wind down. However, there are still a few things to see before we have to return to work on Tuesday.

Between Sunday and Monday, The National play three shows at 9:30 Club in DC. You know you love them and you know the shows are beyond sold out.

Austin's Loxsly hit Galaxy Hut in Arlington with local super group Finer Designer, featuring members of Greenland and Len Bias. The Beanstalk Library make their long awaited return at IOTA and are joined by In Technicolor and Typefighter.
