DC Highlife Stars - Groovin' on the Pike: After Hours at the Library

First Friday Dance Party at Columbia Pike

Visit the Columbia Pike Branch Library on the First Friday of each month from 7 - 9 p.m. for an after-hours, all ages dance party!

  • February 2 - DC Highlife Stars - DC Highlife Stars have been lighting up dance floors across Maryland and DC with their irresistible blend of music from West & Central Africa, along with original compositions that bring the party into the here-and-now.  The vibe is just relaxed fun, but with world-class groove masters slinging deep-pocket bass & drums, percolating double-helix guitars and earthy harmonies all so you can forget your troubles and dance.

  • March 2 - Two Ton Twig - Honoring a time and spirit when music was more raw and honest, Two Ton Twig references the past while charging headfirst into the future. Built on a foundation of classic bluegrass instrumentation, this string quintet combines emotion and depth with their raucous and carefree attitude, to form a wholly original sound. The result is both captivating and foot-stompin' fun.

  • April 6 - Rene Ibanez & Cubano Groove - From boogaloo to Latin-jazz, Cubano Groove will have you up and dancing! The band has deep roots both in Cuban music and in DC's broader music scene. Featured at the 2016 DC Jazz Fest, the Band was a mainstay at the club HR-57 (at both the 14th St and H St locations), performing with icons such as Cuban pianist Chuchito Valdes.
