Want to live socially, rock locally, and support some great DC-area bands? Pay $25 and score a ticket to The Capitol Groove Fest on July 28 presented by mus-x (a $50 value). Declared "the most welcome addition" to DC's "25 Best Summer Concerts" by The Washington Post, this noon-to-11 p.m. barrage of dance-happy beats features seven local bands, two DJs, and a traffic jam of mouthwatering food trucks (including Pinkberry) -- all just a Metro hop away at the Fairgrounds at Navy Yard. Bob to hip-hop and soul act Pants Velour, rock out to stylings of headliner Drop Electric, and groove to the smooth sounds of NE newcomers Redline Graffiti (some of our personal favorites) -- with premium sound provided by Pick-Up Productions. Want access to the elevated party deck and private bar? Shell out $50 and score a VIP ticket, sponsored by KegBus, DC's premiere party bus service (a $100 value). Sweet summer tunes and curbside cuisine inside the city limits? Now that's something to dance about.

"Capitol Groove... is a modest entry onto the festival scene—the confirmed bands are all local, including atmospheric rockers Drop Electric, young techno DJ Lightwaves, and electro-rock newcomers Redline Graffiti."

At the Venue


An open-air venue completely unlike any other, the Fairgrounds at Navy Yard is located across from the Centerfield Gate at Nationals Park and constructed from nearly 100 brightly colored shipping containers—all refurbished. Who knew industrial architecture could be so cool? The venue’s main stage is complemented by three wraparound bars and enough parking space for more than 20 food trucks. And not only does the block-long lot host concerts, but art fairs, carnivals, and farmer’s markets, too. No matter what’s going on here, it’s always interesting.
