Stay Amped: A Concert to End Gun Violence
The Anthem, 901 Wharf St. SW; Fri., 7:30 p.m., $50-$175.
Rock band Fall Out Boy headlines Friday’s concert at The Anthem that benefits Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund and Giffords — and coincides with Saturday’s March for Our Lives. Lizzo, above (the indie hip-hop artist behind the song “Good as Hell”), rapper G-Eazy, pop singer (and G-Eazy collaborator) Bebe Rexha, country singer Cam and DIY artist Alex G round out the bill. Surprise guests and student gun violence survivors are also expected to appear.
Courtney Marie Andrews
Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW; Fri., 9 p.m., $12.
Americana artist Courtney Marie Andrews celebrates the release of her new album, “May Your Kindness Remain,” Friday at the Black Cat. The record, also out Friday, is a mix of stark country songs and soulful, twangy rockers — all driven by the Arizona native’s distinctive (and impressive) voice.
Gypsy Sally’s, 3401 K St. NW; Sat., 9 p.m., $15-$18.
Portland, Ore.-based Fruition has often been called a bluegrass band, but on fifth studio album “Watching It All Fall Apart,” released last month, the group’s sonic palette has expanded well beyond that traditional style. There are straight-ahead rock songs, country-ish ballads, upbeat pop songs and plenty of soul — including the highlight “I Should Be (On Top of the World),” which acts as a showcase for co-lead singer Mimi Naja.
