      Description

      Washington D.C. has been known as a national center for the arts and for amazing performing arts centers like the Kennedy Center and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The Velvet Lounge isn't like any of those places, but it does schedule excellent local performers specializing in psych, punk, and rock. As anyone that has bought tickets to performances at the Velvet Lounge knows, the focus here is on excellent music, inexpensive drinks, and great people.

      The Velvet Lounge sets itself apart from the other bars and clubs on U Street by keeping it simple. Bands play upstairs to frenzied crowds while those looking for relief from the crowds can linger downstairs, and there's nearly always someone interesting to talk to. Drinks are simple and inexpensive; people looking for elaborate, $10 organic cocktails will be out of luck. The schedule of performers will never feature a big name star, but will feature talented, popular musicians that are at the heart of the local music scene. Audiences looking for a nitty, gritty live music experience should check out the frequent happenings at the Velvet Lounge.

      Check the schedule above to see what performers (and maybe parties) the Velvet Lounge has lined up for this week, or just stop in to one of Washington D.C.'s most authentic live music venues.
