Jazz Corner This Wed-COME EARLY 6PM!
Come out Wednesday night (3/8/06) for a wonderful night of sonic liberation in the form of the best weekly Jazz night in DC! Jes Grew Productions' DJ Birdman is back this week with a heaping helping of the best jazz you will hear, and as usual it's taking place at the local U Street watering hole and lounge, Cafe Saint-Ex/Gate 54.

This week The Jazz Corner will be starting an hour early, and the good folks of the Cricklewood Massive bring you iPod Night at 9pm, following our program. We will see ya there, oh.... and I promise more blog entries on a regular basis!
