Marlee in the Mixx

Funk/soul
Marlee in the Mixx is one of U Street’s best kept secrets, even though the band is hard to miss. From its perch in the front window of Indulj, the band and its high energy sets pull passersby off the street. With nine members no older than 23, the band deftly handles covers of everything from Teena Marie to Kendrick Lamar, as well as a solid repertoire of originals. U Street is a bustling boulevard of a new D.C., and Marlee in the Mixx fits into the new cosmopolitan vibe; the band also is a throwback to the era of live performers woodshedding nightly to perfect a unique sound. Marlee opened for Big K.R.I.T. at the Fillmore last year, so catch the band before it’s consistently filling big venues. They play two extended sets between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m.
10 p.m. Fridays (until 2 a.m.)
