Young Dro at D.C. Star
The Grand Hustle rapper and friend of T.I. contributed to the great catalog of songs about leaning (see "Gangsta Lean" and "Lean Back") with his 2006 hit "Shoulder Lean." He performs that track, and others, tonight at D.C. Star. Big-B opens. Doors open at 9 p.m. Ladies free before 11 p.m.
Beer gardens aren't just for pre-gaming before watching the Nats lose: Check out the Yards Park Concert Series, which kicked off May 13, tonight, and experience free live music and sips from the aforementioned Yards Park beer garden. Monster Band provides the tunes. Free. 6-8 p.m.
Protect-U, with Bluebrain and Painted Face, at St. Stephen's Church
Listen to electronic music and support a good cause! All proceeds from this show benefit the Brain Injury Association of Washington, D.C. $5. 7:30 p.m. All ages/no alcohol.
This annual event has raised millions for the National Kidney Foundation, in part because well-seasoned meat and rock are just an irresistible combination. Just go easy on the spicy stuff so you won't end up suffering through heartburn during Weezer's set. Papa Roach, Panic! at the Disco open. $35-55. Gates open at 11 a.m.
Another benefit concert! Soundbites, a night of music and eats, supports D.C. Central Kitchen. There will be performances from go-go pioneers Trouble Funk, indie band Ra Ra Rasputin, and food from, well, pretty much every tasty restaurant in town, including Jaleo, Taylor Gourmet, Policy, Mie N Yu, and more. $40, doors open 5 p.m.
