This show is for the "moonlighters" among us: Washingtonians who split their time between full-time jobs and part-time passions. We'll meet a veteran Capitol Hill aide who moonlights behind the hostess stand at her new Georgetown restaurant. We'll hang out with some parents who really just wanna rock and roll all night, and we'll chat with people who've actually made their hobbies and side jobs their primary pursuits.

[Music: "Every Little Bit Hurts" by John Davis from Title Tracks]
