This weekend brings the final performances at legendary D.C. jazz venue Bohemian Caverns. An institution at 11th and U streets for 90 years, the club officially closes its doors March 31, as Washington City Paper first reported.
On today’s Morning Edition, I talked to some folks who have been intimately involved in the space since Omrao Brown and his partners took it over a decade ago. Listen to the story here.
This weekend’s gigs at the Caverns are mostly sold out — except for a just-announced Sunday night jam session with The Young Lions. Tickets are still available for both sets. If you want ’em, act quickly.
