First Friday Dance Parties are back at the Columbia Pike Branch Library!

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!

  • November 1 - De Sanguashington offers a variety of Colombian rhythms including vallenato, cumbia (popular folk music from Colombia’s Caribbean region), and tropi-pop (a blend of traditional musical forms with foreign Latin genres, such as salsa and merengue). Gaiteros de Sanguashington has emerged as one of the premier Colombian bands in the Washington, D.C. area, recognized and beloved by the Colombian and Latino community and those who enjoy international music.
  • December 6 - The Grandsons are moving and shaking into their 3rd decade in the world of rock and roll! Recently, the group released their first ever holiday CD, Christmas with The Grandsons, and headlined at the world famous 930 Club in Washington DC. The roots rock quartet has performed extensively throughout the US, and has even toured internationally in Germany, France, Canada, Taiwan, and the British & US Virgin Islands. In 2012, the band received an Arts Envoy grant from the US State Department to perform for a week in El Salvador.
