Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week
What is it about the beginning of September that makes everyone want to throw a music festival? Okay, it's Labor Day, that last gasp of summer when people might be looking for any excuse to head outdoors. That makes sense. But even the weekend after the long weekend is festival-filled. If reggae's your thing, then get to Crossroads today for the One Love Festival. The all-day, indoor/outdoor affair will have plenty of music and vendors to meet your Jamaican needs. Dancehall stars Buju Banton and Beenie Man are the big names on the bill, but don't sleep on S.T.O.R.M., one of the area's strongest reggae bands. And yes, the irony of Banton -- who has run into controversy for some not-quite-tolerant lyrics of his -- headlining the One Love Festival isn't lost on us.
This is just one of many highlights in this week's Nightlife Agenda column, which also has details of our favorite bar band's album release party; a free show by local DJ legend Scott Henry; the Superstars of Jazz Fusion; a Bethesda bar crawl; a solid concert with local indie rock bands; and the swinging Harlem Renaissance Orchestra.
