Family Hemerlein Variety Show


Editorial Review

Ladies' night at the ever-popular Family Hemerlein variety show is not a ladies' night of cheap booze and DJs spinning "It's Raining Men." It's a chance to check out awesome comedic and musical talent who just happen to be women. From New York come Sara Schaefer, comic, writer and Emmy-winning "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" blogger, and Brooke Van Poppelen, who has been nominated twice at the Excellence in Comedy awards. Singer Natalia Clavier was born in Argentina but has D.C. ties as the first female solo artist on Eighteenth Street Lounge records. She has lent sultry jazz vocals to songs by Thievery Corporation and Federico Aubele, as well as recording her own album, "Nectar." Check out all three women with ringleader Matthew Hemerlein and comic Seaton Smith, who may be the funniest dude in Washington. Doors open at 7 p.m. for cocktails and chit-chat, and the performance begins around 9. The last few shows have sold out in advance, so don't wait to buy tickets at the venue.
