At 7 p.m., Hill Center will host a free discussion with Washington-based composer/drummer Nasar Abadey, leader of the jazz group SUPERNOVA. At 8 p.m., Abadey will perform for a ticketed crowd ($15 in advance, $20 at the door), and proceeds from the performance will go to the Frager’s crew.
D.C. Jazz Fest runs through June 16 at venues across the city.
Correction 3:20 p.m.
An earlier version of this post listed the wrong date for the event. It is set for June 12.
Roll Call After Dark is about what Washington does when it's not at work.
The District of Columbia is a cultural capital where you can you get your kicks from movies projected on the National Mall, lectures on vermouth or Russian avant-garde art. There's always something to do.
