We took a look at the Adams Morgan location here. From a press release:

When Adam Eidinger and Alan Amsterdam opened Capitol Hemp Clothing and Accessories on April 20, 2008, they never imagined it would be less than two years before they would open a second store at 519 H Street, NW. Now the DC duo are pleased to announce they will host a major event at the Rock N Roll Hotel!! On the evening of Tuesday, April 20, 2010. The event is expect to demonstrate the strong support in the DC community for Capitol Hemp which regularly showcases undiscovered artists and designers, gallery openings and special events.

The Anniversary concert will demonstrate Capitol Hemp’s deep committed to Washington, DC’s musicians, artists and activists. “We’ve assembled an all star line-up of some of DC’s most exciting musical artists,” says Adam Eidinger. Doors open at 8pm, the show begins at 9pm and its an all ages event. Tickets are only $10

Eight piece reggae band SEE-I is going to get the revellers dancing with their unique blend of soul, funk and 70’s dancehall grooves. Featuring 6 members of Thievery Corporation, SEE-I really is a “Homegrown” super band! Nationally touring act FORT KNOX FIVE is bringing their 5 piece live band with vocals by DC rapper ASHERU of Boondocks theme song fame. FORT KNOX FIVE is debuting this live show for the DC massive before they are off on the festival circuit for the summer. Rounding out the bill are DC’s rudeboys of funk NAPPY RIDDEM. The two Rastars themselves, REX RIDDEM & MUSTAFA AKBAR are brining their live show to the party. This is a concert not to miss, and a celebration to remember.
