Join WTMD for the final First Thursdays Concert in the Park of 2012 on Thursday, September 6th in West Mt. Vernon Park. This show promises to rattle the cobblestones, shake the Washington Monument, and rock the park with a triple-threat lineup.
The Nighthawks — Since 1974 this legendary DC-based blues and roots rock band hasn’t slowed down one bit. Their latest release, Damn Good Time, is “one of the best roots records of the year from a bunch of blues-tinged roaddawgs who still know how to rock.” — Grant Britt, No Depression
The Tom Principato Band — Also from Washington, Tom Principato has been known for firing the smokin’-est blues notes from his Telecaster. “He’s been leaving mouths agape with his classy yet searing guitar pyrotechnics over the United States and Europe for the better part of four decades.” — Hal Horowitz, Atlanta Creative Loafing
The 44’s — Rising stars on the U.S. blues/roots scene, this Los Angeles band evidences a genuine gift for creating blues in the moment while at the same time showing loyalty to a remarkable blues-and-r&b tradition that goes back decades.
The show starts at 5:30 and runs till about 8:45. Food and drink are available and you’re welcome to bring lawn chairs, your own food, and friends for this free show. For more information about First Thursdays Concerts in the Park, click HERE.
