"Some music cannot be found on a map or within iTunes categories. Some music is so original it seems snatched from the great, invisible substrata that runs below all human activity, a sound aching to be born without a flag or fixed allegiance. This is the music of Toubab Krewe," says the band of maverick indie-folk, pseudo-African jam rockers. Claims as grandiose as these might be off-putting coming from any other group, but fortunately Toubab Krewe's résumé (check them out at Bonnaroo) and otherworldy music backs the talk up. Come check out their hynotizing live show at The Hamilton this Friday. Doors 7PM, Show 8:30PM. $17 Adv, $19 Door.
The 15th production of Washington D.C. Fashion Week is almost here! Deemed “The Power of Style,” our nation’s capital is bringing you a week of international fashion kicking off September 19th through September 25th.

Here we provide your one-stop shop for scheduling, participating designers you cannot miss, and if you are new to the concept, some general information regarding the event.
Do you know what the world's deadliest war has been since World War II?
Do you also know that it is happening right now?
While newspapers do a tremendous job covering the devastating happenings in the Middle East, they seem to skim over what has been one of, if not the worst conflict of the late 20th and 21st century: The Congo Civil War.
Over the last decade, an estimated 5-6 million people have died, with 15,000 people dying daily, either from direct combat, starvation, or disease. Rape has been used as a deadly weapon against women, not only scarring them physically and emotionally, but causing them to become ostracized within their communities. Additionally, thousands of children are targeted and forced to become soldiers to fight in a war they don't even understand.
What are you doing on Saturday, August 6th?
How does a night of complimentary hors d'oeuves, an OPEN bar, and live music sound?
Then come out to STROGA in Adams Morgan, where the 2nd annual Mid-Summer Night for Dreams is happening! The event will be raising funds for Dreams for Kids DC, an organization that empowers youth living in poverty and those with disabilities by uniting them with their peers, recognizing their abilities, and allowing their voices to be heard.
The event is also a platform to welcome the organization's new Executive Director, Glenda Fu, while wishing outgoing Director Andrew Horn the best as he moves to Chicago to take over national operations for Dreams for Kids.
It's finally the middle of the week, which means it's time again to stope lamenting last weekend's end and to start planning out next weekend's agenda. If you're looking for ideas, look no further than the Rosslyn Outdoor Film Festival. To go along with this week's feature film, City Slickers, you can russle up some friends, round up a big blanket, and prepare yourself a picnic fit for John Wayne.
Here are a couple of Joonbug's suggestions for a cowboy picnic:
1. Frank and Beans. There's nothing easier than heating up a can of red beans, with a bit of tabasco sauce and chiles, served with slices of hot dogs (or for the vegetarians, veggie dogs).
The basics of being environmentally-conscientious are easy: reduce, reuse, recycle. But if you're looking to do more than the basics, how about listening to chart-topping bands and enjoying delicious farm fresh food?
Head to the Sweetlife Festival in Columbia, Maryland on May 1st, 2011.

Mc-ing. Breaking. Dj-ing; The three elements of hip hop. Besides breaking, DJ-ing has become a lost art. We label someone a DJ because they are able to press play on a Macbook and speak into a mic. It takes a little bit more than that. You have to be knowledgeable; you have to know what song will ignite the crowd.
DJ Scratch understands this. He has been a DJ for over 25 years. He started his career as the resident DJ for hip-hop group EPMD. You name the artist, he’s spinned for them. On Saturday, April 9th, 2011, hip-hop heads, hipsters, and partygoers all gathered to celebrate another victory for DJ Scratch. He was crowned as the 2010 Master of the Mix, the first reality show for DJ’s.
