The perfect distraction from the passing thought of more flurries is the dream of summer in our fair district. With the Nats’ home slate and potential debut of a pitcher Rachel (and apparently team) are embracing as “Jesus,” Half Street will be a hot spot all through the dog days.
In addition to the usual baseball, as announced late last month, Dave Matthews Band will be hitting the field once graced by the Pope and Billy Joel (not simultaneously that I’m aware of) for an excellent mid-summer concert. Tickets for the July 23rd concert go on sale tomorrow morning, and with support from the increasingly popular Zac Brown Band plus the appeal of Nationals Park concert, you can be sure they will go quickly.
The link to the public sale was a little bit of a challenge to find, but this Live Nation page should be updated at 10 a.m. tomorrow when the tickets open up. With any hope, any additional snow will be gone by July, but I’ll leave that prognostication to the Capital Weather Gang.
