Washington, DC 20001
4-7 Happy hour (drink discounts & free admission for this portion) 7 Braxton Cook Quartet 8:30 Butcher Brown 10 Marc Cary’s Rhodes Ahead
The music at this show is focused on dancing, and on jazz’s evolving relationship with electronic music: Headliner Marc Cary (pictured) uses his Rhodes Ahead project to explore the connections between jazz, go-go, funk, electronic dance music, house and hip-hop. Cary grew up playing in go-go and jazz bands around the D.C. area before moving to New York and touring the world with Betty Carter, Abbey Lincoln, Roy Hagrove and others. At this show he performs across the street from the 9:30 Club, and just steps from U Street, Rhodes Ahead will be joined on the bill by two up-and-coming bands that have roots in D.C. and have recently begun playing around the country: Butcher Brown the Braxton Cook Quartet.
