Description

Concerts on the Lawn - Library of Congress

The Library of Congress and Washington Performing Arts’ Mars Urban Arts Initiative will co-host the second “Summer Concerts on the Lawn” outdoor musical performance series. The performances will be presented in conjunction with the "LOC Summer Movies on the Lawn" — a six-film series which showcases iconic films from the Library’s National Film Registry — on Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm from July 11 through Aug. 15 on the north lawn of the Library’s Thomas Jefferson Building, across the street from the U.S. Capitol. The film screenings will follow the musical performances at sundown.

IS IT RAINING? In the event of rain, the concert will still take place in the Coolidge Auditorium, inside the Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress, at 7pm. The film will be cancelled or rescheduled.

So we look forward to seeing you, rain or shine!

Samurai Champloo 15th anniversary event

The Bytes & Beats 15th anniversary concert of Samurai Champloo is a very influential and unique anime-hip hop experience. It celebrates the best of African American, Japanese, Eastern, and Western cultures combined by throwing a concert that pairs some of the most relevant, upwardly mobile influencers in the anime-inspired hip hop & lo-fi hip hop alongside emcees who worked directly with Samurai Champloo soundtrack composer/producer Nujabes. The show creator Shinichiro Watanabe, and key collaborators such as Nujabes and Fat Jon merged the worlds of anime and hip hop fans like never before. This provided a springboard for the now massive lo-fi, Chill hop, and underground hip hop movements.
