Each summer The Post and the Weekend section host Weekend's Weekends, a series of free concerts featuring a variety of music from top local talent in our community. The concerts are held at the Carter Barron Amphitheatre in cooperation with the National Park Service of the National Capital Region. This year, we will present three concerts: A Nu-Soul Night on June 17, a Rock Night on June 24 and a Big Band/Small Band Swing Night on July 8.
Nu-Soul Night will feature alternative rhythm and blues band Oktbrwrld, soul crew Zwei with Sol Edler and neo-soul songbird Deborah Bond with her band, Third Logic.
Rock Night will feature Duke University-bred but locally based acoustic rockers Kenin, power-pop singer-songwriter Niki Barr and modern-rockers Rotoglow.
Swing Night will feature the Brooks Tegler Big Band and the J Street Jumpers in a program tracing that dance-inspiring jazz craze from its heyday in the '30s and '40s and jump blues side trip in the '50s and on into the '60s.
Carter Barron Amphitheatre is at 16th Street and Colorado Avenue NW. Free tickets for Weekend's Weekends will be available on the day of performance at the Carter Barron box office beginning at noon. Tickets will also be available starting at 8:30 a.m. the day of the show at The Post at 1150 15th St. NW. There are no scheduled rain dates. Picnic areas are available in the park around the amphitheater. For more information, call 202-334-6808.
