The SweetBread Jim's "Potluck" Spectacular! at St. Stephens
A variety show that we approve of 100%. D.C.'s finest sideshow performer Mab, Just Mab is the master of ceremonies. Star FK Radium will play spacey, instrumental music that doesn't jam too much. Band of the hour Sweetbread Jim will pound out pop songs that make people happy. My D.C.-profiled Sampson will inevitably steal the show and convert new fans. Add in burlesque, magic and free food and beer from local powerhouses Red Rocks Pizza, Columbia Heights Coffee, Mama Chuy DC, Meridian Pint and more. This is a one-stop shop for D.C. produced fun.
