Friday Night Eclectic returns to Strathmore in January
Strathmore's Friday Night Eclectic returns on Jan. 21 and boasts a lineup that should appeal to concert-goers who usually spend their weekends on U Street or H Street instead of North Bethesda. The weekly concerts at Strathmore's mansion feature an impressive array of local talent in hip-hop, indie, Latin and folk.
The series kicks off with performances by local rappers X.O. and RAtheMC, who made two of the five best hip-hop albums to come out of D.C. in 2010. Other artists scheduled to perform include the aptly named Funk Ark (Feb. 25) and salsa dance-floor kings Sin Miedo (April 8), both veterans of this past summer's Going Out Guide concerts at Carter Barron. Bellflur (Feb. 11) appeared on our best local rock list; Junior League Band (March 4) was among the best of local alt-country.
All concerts start at 9 p.m. and cost $12 ($10 in advance). You can snag $2 PBRs during a pre-show happy hour from 8-9. View the full schedule here.
