Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week
Bohemian Caverns scores a major coup this week with back-to-back shows featuring Les Nubians, the acclaimed Francophone sisters who began their love affair with America right here in Washington. The breezy Afropop and nu-soul of Les Nubians' debut caught fire on WHUR in 1998, back when Europe wasn't really showing them love. That first single "Makeda" instantly made a lot of listeners more worldly, opening them up to black music in other languages and from other shores. Les Nubians have only dropped one other album since, 2003's solid "One Step Forward," but the sincerity and fun in their music makes them a consistent concert draw. Catch late sets in the upstairs Liv space Wednesday or Thursday.
This is just one of the events profiled in this week's Nightlife Agenda column, along with Bastille Day parties, concerts by Mos Def, Femi Kuti and Two Cow Garage, a tribute to J. Dilla and a debut appearance by some rising stars of bhangra music.
