Tonight is the kickoff of District Sounds, a monthly concert series curated by Washington Post music critic Chris Richards at the Hill Center. In addition to a live performance, each edition features a 30-minute conversation between Richards and the featured artist.

February's chosen act is the indie-pop group Cigarette; you can listen to the band's new album "Gush" on Bandcamp. Future participants include jazz bassist Kris Funn and Grammy-nominated singer Carolyn Malachi.

We're giving away a pair of tickets for tonight's show, which begins at 7 p.m. All you have do to win is tell us which local musician or band you'd like to see onstage telling stories and playing songs. We'll announce the winner at 3 p.m.
