Yeah, I didn't get tickets for tonight's Foo Fighters gig at D.C.'s Black Cat. By the time I read the announcement and got dressed, the club was already posting to social media that the line was long and that people shouldn't even bother getting in line.
Since I'm not going to the gig I'll be at home watching the Washington, D.C.-centered episode of HBO's Foo Fighters Sonic Highways. There's a preview below.
But obviously that show is not the only place to learn about D.C.'s rich musical history. Scott Crawford's much-anticipated Salad Days doc is finally close to being ready.
The film will be premiering at DOC NYC on November 14. After that, it's coming to Silver Spring's AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center. There are 3 screenings in December. Check out the AFI Silver website for more details.
And if that isn't enough, there are a few Salad Days gigs at Black Cat coming up where a reformed Soulside is going to take the stage joined by Dot Dash and Office of Future Plans.
If you've ever read my blog before then you know all about Dot Dash. Office of Future Plans is J. Robbins from Jawbox and G.I. and his crew.
In the run-up to the release of Salad Days keep updated via the Facebook page for the film:
