Remix Your Weekend: Lots of free stuff around the District
GU Jam Sesh holds first show: The newly-formed community for Georgetown University musicians is sponsoring its first show Saturday. The performances begin at 8 p.m. and end at 10 p.m. because of D.C. noise regulations and will feature Mellen, The Ripples, and Dagos, all student musicians and bands.
Rosslyn Jazz Festival: This year’s festival will be held in Gateway Park, less than a quarter of a mile from the Key Bridge, on Saturday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. The event will feature Pancho Sanchez with James Carter, The Soul Rebels, Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens, and Kenny Rittenhouse. If you’re skeptical about jazz concerts, it’s free, which is a great reason to go in and of itself. Read about it in this week’s Voice as well.
(Food) Truckeroo: Truckeroo is having its second-to-last monthly food truck festival today from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. The event, taking place at the Fairgrounds across from the Navy Yard Metro station, will feature 20 food trucks and live music. It’s free to enter, but you’ll probably have to pay for food. 11th Annual King Street Art Festival: The Alexandria festival will take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The free event will feature painting, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, photography, and more.
