Blessings and Light! Some Souls Church welcomes all sinners (even minorities) to get the pews sticky at Church Night the second Wednesday of every month at Wonderland Ballroom!
Rejoice in favorite hymns like “Tainted Love” and “Like a Prayer.” Receive the holy sacrament of shots-n-tots communion. Revive your community of friends by coming together at the same time.
Church Night features hole-some entertainment that appeals to the average drunk parishioner. Revered Dr. Stevedore Maybelline Bidet Esq. delivers the good news with a fervor he usually only reserves for cats, while Youth Minister, Kathy Piechota, keeps the congregation up to date with important church news. Listen to special music by a local solo musician. Watch Him reveal his intentions through the body of a burlesque extrordinaire. Laugh at a very funny children’s comedian; the kids love it! At the end of the service, dance the night away to a popular rock group!
The North Country
Combining American roots rock and roll with the lyrical earnestness of folk, The North Country brings to DC a musical and spiritual call to arms that is both sophisticated and imminently listenable. The North Country are musical traditionalist, operating under the mindset that in an age of endlessly processed and commodified music there is still no substitute for thoughtful songwriting and tasteful musicianship. Whether playing a house show in a sweaty basement in Petworth or on the main stage at The Black Cat The North Country bring the same level of enthusiasm and intentionality that will leave you with no choice but to have a good time.
Jonny Grave is a Bluesman from Washington DC. Growing up in a musical family, Grave was introduced to the sound of American traditional folk music early on. At age fifteen he found himself learning slide guitar techniques from old blues records. The distinc sound that Jonny Grave's music conjures is a resurrection of sorts - The music of R.L. Burnside, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Robert Johnson and Bukka White all find a way into Grave's playing style. His repertoire of sound is made up of new arrangements of older blues and deeply rooted originals.
