The annual D.C. Jazz Festival wraps up this weekend on Sunday, and there is still plenty of time to take in some great acts at Washington’s biggest music event of the year, whether it be the Dana Leong Trio’s “hi def Yo Yo Ma” mash-up style at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue tonight at 8 p.m.:
or The Roots and their unique brand of hip-hop funk playing Saturday at the Southwest Waterfront’s Kastles Stadium at 6 p.m.:
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.
