Fri., June 07, Richard March
Harlow's Restaurant & Nightclub, 10 p.m., $12
On Friday night, Richard March—2007 Sammies Critics' Choice winner for Outstanding Male Vocalist—will play one of his last local shows for two years. Shortly after the night of music (dubbed the Americana Ramble) at Harlow's Restaurant & Nightclub, he'll leave for a two-year commitment to the Peace Corps in Ethiopia that starts July 1. Joining him at this going-away show of sorts are Scotty & Sasha and Friends (featuring members of the Alkali Flats and the Poplollys) and the Americans. March's Americana-inflected folk songwriting recently got political on his latest EP Kings & Thieves, which was a duo project with Tyler Ragle. Stop by and wish him luck. 2708 J Street, www.richardmarch.com.
