Bridging the Gap ~October 5th, 2020: Eighteenth Street Lounge

OverPage-0.jpeg

Call this show a tribute.

I just found out (a little late) that the Eighteenth Street Lounge in DC has closed indefinitely. Another casuality to the COVID shutdowns. This was one of my favorite bars in DC, and it's style and selection was one that I shaped a lot of DJ sets around. It was always on my gig bucketlist, but sadly never came to be. So this session of Bridging the Gap will feature music from the ESL music the record label founded by Eric Hilton, co-founder of the bar and Thievery Corporation, and will dig into the world and jazz inspired lounge.
