You can take a trip back to the heyday of hot jazz with Chaise Lounge tonight.
Chaise Lounge
You can take a trip back to the heyday of hot jazz with Chaise Lounge tonight.

(April 21-22) From Johannes Brahms to goth synthrock
Not every city gives you goth synthrock drenched in the imagery of Edgar Allen Poe and Brahms’ Requiem within a twelve-hour window. Luckily, this one does. You’ll find all the heavy, moody rock music you need at Darkness for Doggies / Coldness for Kitties — that’s a benefit for The Washington Animal Rescue League held Saturday night at St. Stephen’s Church in Columbia Heights. And Maestro Norman Scribner leads his Choral Arts Society of Washington for the last time in Requiem Sunday afternoon at The Kennedy Center.

(April 19) The musical equivalent to lounging
To keep things eclectic, Chaise Lounge brings lush sounds reminiscent of the early 60s to BlackRock in Germantown tonight. The local hot jazz band celebrates its new album with some fresh selections and favorite standards.

(April 22) Uncharted harmonies
For something a little more experimental, four musicians tinker with their very different toys Sunday night at Back Alley Theater in Northwest Washington. Expect to hear unfamiliar sounds coming from a saxophone, violin, cello, and an electric guitar.

Music: “In Walked Mo” by Chaise Lounge
