Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week
Victor Manuelle has played at Constitution Hall, hosted the Latin Grammy Awards and performed a cappella at the legendary Celia Cruz's funeral. And Friday night, you can see him at ... the Hilton Hotel in Tysons Corner. Seriously. Manuelle, known as "el Sonero de la Juventud" or "the Youth's Sonero" because of his popularity with younger salsa fans, has become one of the biggest stars in the world since his unlikely debut. (He jumped onstage with famed vocalist Gilberto Santa Rosa on a dare and managed to impress the sonero with his phrasing and improvisation.) While he's dabbled with reggaeton and other new styles of Latin music, Manuelle has stuck to romantic salsa ballads and classic dance floor-packing numbers. Brush up on your steps before heading out tonight; since it's in a hotel ballroom, this won't be a laid-back all-seated concert. Manuelle's rousing vocals will have the crowd moving all night long.
This is just one of the events Fritz, Rhome and David discuss in this week's Nightlife Agenda column, which contains our picks for this weekend's Six Points Music Festival concerts, a double feature of "The Goonies" and '80s trivia night, a stylish trip to the Rock and Roll Hotel and a new outdoor weekend happy hour in Glover Park.
