Monday night is the easiest night to stay in. Everyone is heading back to work. Venues close after busy weekends. It can also be one of the more rewarding to go out on the town.
There’s no pressure, there are few lines, and the mood is pretty relaxed — the perfect set of circumstances for discovery and pleasant surprise.
Perhaps to reward the Monday seeker, the Black Cat has what is likely to be a pretty interesting show tonight with Tallhart, a band whose aw-shucks-let’s-party vibe belies a deep lyrical and melodic repertoire.
Doors for the Backstage show open at 8 p.m. at 1811 14th Street NW. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased here.
From Indian Lakes will open.
Also making an appearance will be Makeshift Prodigy.
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.
