Hey, isn't the Super Bowl this weekend? Are the Redskins playing? No? Impossible! Anyways, there's a decent degree of debauchery around the city this weekend, so long as you're into 1960s rock and roll bands and neo-classical R&B. Football blows.
* Blue Öyster Cult @ the State Theater, "from the ultimate in early metal anthems 'Cities on Flame With Rock & Roll', to the extraordinarily menacing and elegantly creeping doom of '(Don't Fear) The Reaper', to the stylistic triumph of 2001's 'Curse of the Hidden Mirror', BÖC proves over and over that you can indeed mature without losing your cosmic edge." [State Theater]
* Brazilian Carnaval @ Ultrabar, "the biggest party on earth, the most exciting time of the year, the most stereotyped event of the planet is coming to Georgetown. Come eat, drink, dance and be merry, in true Brasilian Carnaval style." [Ultrabar]
* Emily King @ the Black Cat, "from banging around on a guitar in her apartment to performing on the local folk club circuit at such noted venues as the Bitter End and CBGB's Gallery, Emily's musical vision grew. It soon encompassed hip-hop as she met producer Chucky Thompson, a member of Bad Boy Entertainment's famed Hitman studio team who had recorded smashes with the likes of the Notorious B.I.G. and Mary J. Blige." [The Black Cat]
* The Super Bowl @ the Crossroads, "the Crossroads is showing the game on its big-screen TVs, but we're more interested in the free Caribbean buffet and drink specials that are being offered from 4 pm on." [WP City Guide]
