Tomorrow is the first of our annual Going Out Guide Weekend Concerts at Carter Barron Amphitheatre. The show will be headlined by Maimouna Youssef, an ascendant local 26-year-old R&B/soul/jazz/hip-hop star. Read our profile on her and listen to songs from her debut EP, “Black Magic Woman.” Also performing will be Antone “Chooky” Caldwell and Weekend’s own Jess Righthand.

There are two ways to get your free tickets:

Pick them up at The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, or swing by the Carter Barron box office, 16th Street and Colorado Avenue NW, beginning at noon. Tickets go fast and are limited to four per adult.

There are no scheduled rain dates. Picnic areas are available in the park around the amphitheater. For more information, call The Post at 202-334-6808 or the Carter Barron concert line, which will have updated information on weather-related cancellations, at 202-426-0486.
