Nightlife Agenda

There's something for every taste this week: A mix of rising indie-rock groups (Title Tracks, Casper Bangs) and scene veterans (Tommy Lepson, Eric Brace and Last Train Home) play tribute to the artists of the British Invasion at Strathmore over two nights. '80s hitmaker Jellybean Benitez -- producer of Madonna's early hits, remixer of Whitney Houston, Huey Lewis and the "Flashdance" theme -- takes the decks at U Street Music Hall. Trombone Shorty brings the sounds of Treme to D.C. Plus the Crystal Method pays Fur a visit, Public Enemy's DJ hosts a free after-party, a new club opens its doors and local clubs are swamped by garage rock.
