DC Jazz Loft @ Rhizome

Rhizome, 6950 Maple Street NW, Washington DC

This month’s installment of the DC Jazz Loft features bassist/vocalist Nicole Saphos and vibraphonist Chris Barrick, two respected young musicians starting to make waves on the District’s scene.

Like always, things get going at 7 p.m. at Rhizome DC, just steps from the Takoma Metro stop. There are no tickets, just donations collected at the door ($10 suggested) — 100 percent of which go to the performing artists. The event is all-ages. And all musicians who come out are encouraged to bring their instruments; the night will end in an open jam, and anything can happen at the loft.
