“SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 24
Go-Go Returns to U Street featuring Rare Essence (with opener Jahsonic)
$15 / 7pm doors / 18+

More information here.

Go-go is the unmistakable sound of Washington, D.C. The locally bred genre, known for its relentless rhythm, used to be a mainstay in the city, particularly throughout the bustling U Street corridor. While go-go’s presence in the nation’s capital has waned in recent years, it will make a triumphant return to U Street this month when U Street Music Hall welcomes legendary go-go band Rare Essence to its stage. This will be the first time in over 10 years that the group has performed on U Street. Opening for the evening will be Washington native DJ Jahsonic. Get ready for an evening of homegrown sounds when go-go returns to U Street!”

2519 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW before

Well this is awkward I had no idea Bayou closed!?!?!! I mean I knew Bayou on the Hill had closed but holy smokes was I asleep at the wheel. Well, better late than never and here’s the deal on their replacement:

From an email:

“As you may know, we closed Bayou back in May. However, we still have the space and we’ve renovated it into a gorgeous private event space we now call Alfred House. We are using it as a private event venue that people can rent out for private parties. We named Alfred House after Alfred Mullett, an American architect who designed the Old Executive Office Building, among other federal buildings in DC. He actually lived in the rowhouse where the venue is, so that’s how we came up with the name. A fully restored 1889 rowhouse, Alfred House offers a full kitchen, two bars, and a customizable space for any kind of event. With our preferred caterers and in-house party planners, the Alfred House is the perfect spot for social events, corporate gatherings, and wedding parties.

On the weekends, we’re also using the space as a live music venue, much like Bayou. (more…)
