Washington Wizards Introduce The Free Friday Night Concert Series


There are many things in life that people enjoy spending their money on, but two of those things that comes first to my head are live concerts and sporting events. We already know that with the way that that the economy has been working as of lately, inflation has impacted both of these industries, making costs of either event, well costly.

The Washington Wizards are helping take the brunt off of that ordeal by offering you the chance for a buy one get one free type of deal. Starting in December, the franchise is kicking off its Friday Night Concert Series, which is a totally free concert after specific games at the Verizon Center.

The first of the advertised shows takes place on December 31st, when four-time Grammy Award nominated artist Tank and DJ Quicksilva will tipoff the concert series with a performance that will also feature a special guest appearance by four-time Grammy Award nominee Johnny Gill of New Edition.

Other acts throughout the months will be:

Jan. 6 – Backyard Band, Team Familiar, and DJ Rico
Mar. 17 – Bell Biv Devoe, and DJ Money
Mar. 24 – Erica Campbell and DJ Enya

Again, these shows are totally free, but only with the purchase of a game ticket for that night’s Wizards game. For ticket information call 202-661-5050 or visitwww.washingtonwizards.com/concertseries.


The 2016 Summer Spirit Festival Becomes A Two Day Event August 6-7th


The DMV brings you numerous musical festivals each year, and one of them that we look forward to the most is the Summer Spirit Festival, which is slated to take place at the Merriweather Post Pavilion on August 6-7, 2016. Yes everybody, you read that right, they have NOW made this a weekend long event! In past years, we were only restricted to a Saturday afternoon full of fun and good music. Each year’s lineup is always solid, but this year might be one for the books. With two days full of music comes two big headlining acts, and who else is there to set off a weekend of soul and spirit filled fun than Jill Scott and Erykah Badu. They’ll be joined by other supreme talents like Janelle Monáe, The Roots, and Daley, Kindred The Family Soul among many more.

Last year, we were graced with the return of Floetry, Erykah Badu, Anthony Hamilton, Estelle and others as the headliners of the show, and they certainly brought the house down.

Tickets for this event will go on-sale Friday, April 8th on Ticketfly or at the Merriweather Box Office.
