(Jan. 17) Everybody go dark

"Surf rock" may evoke images of huge swells, California sun and endless beaches, but that may not be exactly what you'll get tonight at Artisphere's Dome Theatre in Arlington.

(Jan. 21) Who's the Boss?

For some music that's bound to be a touch brighter, there's Bruce in the U.S.A. Saturday night at State Theatre in Falls Church. The Bruce Springsteen tribute band comprised of superfan Matt Ryan and the American Dream, may be the next best thing to the Boss.
