We're back at Wonderland on the Tuesday before Valentine's Day — just in time for you to meet someone to get bunned up with for the hallmark holiday...or maybe just so you can seek out some buns for the evening! Even if you're only tryin' to be married to the music, the evening will be full of strong drinks, mayhem and merriment, and some of the best musicians in the DC soul scene.
As always, it won't cost you a cent to get in, but we always put out the donation boxes for a different local cause each event and encourage you to give. This month is really special and close to home. Many of you know Maishäh Hendrix, who has been family to the musical community in countless ways for many years (from being in MC Lyte's Paper Thin video back in the day, to bringing Main Source to Songbyrd last month). Maishah has struggled with Sickle Cell for most of her life, and finally has found a donor for the costly marrow transplant that will allow her to live beyond the 50 years that is expected of most people with her condition. By donating, we literally will be paying for a procedure that will keep Maishah alive and amongst us to stay Trifling and Ratchet for many years to come (and one that she can't afford on her own). It's rare that we have an opportunity to actually directly save someone's life, so I hope you will all come and give generously. If you can't make Trifling Tuesday, here is a link to Maishah's GoFundMe campaign so you can donate: gofundme.com/maishah039s-bone-marrow-procedure
The house band this month will be Dante Pope on drums, Eliot Seppa on bass, Micah D. E. Robinson on keys, Zachary Cutler on guitar and Alison Carney on supporting vocals. Come out and make some music about your one true love, your love of Jameson shots, or just your love for them cheeks! We'll be Trifling all night long.
