Editorial Review

Raheem DeVaughn is Washington's most prominent and powerful R&B singer, racking up Grammy nominations and critical acclaim for his smooth, Marvin Gaye-esque soaring love ballads and social commentary. Listening to his records is no substitute for seeing him live, especially in front of an adoring Washington crowd. Get your holiday weekend off to a soulful start with an unplugged performance at the Park at 14th. It's free with a pass from the Park's Web site, and cocktails and sliders are $4 before 7 p.m.
