Bloombars Tonight! (3222 11th Street, NW)

“If you came to our 3rd Bloom last summer, you’ll recall how the Makepeace Brothers (They are brothers, and their last name is Makepeace) brought the house down and lifted everyone up with an unclassifiable eclectic mix of bluegrass, jazz Brazilian, African world rhythms, and Celtic, their sounds are as worldly as their messages.”

Whether playing for thousands of Jason Mraz’ fans during last spring’s “Music Magic and Make Peace” Tour or performing an intimate party in Toronto, Canada, this acoustic trio rocks the house. www.myspace.com/makepeacebrothers. SHOW STARTS AT 9:00pm”
