July 4: The 19th Street Band

The 19th Street Band has become a Friday and Saturday night staple at The Hamilton, and tomorrow night is no different. You can swing by the music venue at 9 p.m. for an Independence Day concert featuring this D.C.-based band, which blends together folk, Americana, country and rock ‘n roll. The trio has opened for the likes of Toby Keith and the Rascal Flatts.

July 5: Callaloo

This Saturday you can take your kids to the National Children’s Museum in Fort Washington for a storytelling session with local author Marjuan Canady, who will be reading her new book Callaloo: A Jazz Folktale, with help from illustrator Nabeeh Bilal. The story follows a little boy named Winston who goes to Brooklyn to get ingredients for dinner. But reality gets a bit distorted when he’s magically transported to his grandma’s house in Tobago, where he encounters mythical creatures. There will be steel drums, singing and puppetry.

Music: “Something” by Johnny Arthey Orchestra
