Nicole Saphos is a remarkable young bassist/vocalist whose distinctive brand of songwriting is well-known — and well-respected — on the D.C. jazz scene. Her songs are playful and engaging, but they have a tendency to dance into thoughtful, and even plaintive, territory.

Saphos brings her trio to Local 16 on Friday, August 23 and Saturday, August 24 for two nights of original music. For the Spotlight each month we turn a cozy room at this U St. bar and restaurant into a pop-up jazz club. The shows will each feature two sets, one at 7:30 p.m. and one at 9:00. Tickets are $5, or FREE for students. One ticket is good for both sets.
