Library Basement Show: Meet the Bands

A glimpse into the life of D.C. musicians

It’s time. The third installment of the Library Basement Show is just around the corner (Thursday, Feb. 19) and we have some information to quell your anxious show-going selves, eager to get back to one of the year’s best (FREE) music venues.

The MLK Jr. Memorial Library basement will host Laughing Man, Maloso and Peoples Drug for a seriously excellent show. But who are these creative individuals you ask? Well, the librarians asked them a few questions on topics they believe are incredibly important:
