More Pie, Please
Rain and lightning cut short last Sunday's free "Weekend's Weekends" concert, forcing local ska favorites the Pietasters to play an abbreviated set. We'd like to make it up to you, with another free Pietasters show Sunday at 7:30 at Carter Barron Amphitheatre, 16th Street and Colorado Avenue NW. They'll play their speedy brand of horn-driven pop (with punk/ reggae/swing overtones) after Eastern Standard Time opens. Pick up free tickets at the Carter Barron box office Sunday starting at noon (last week's tickets won't be honored). Call 202/334-4748.
