11th & U Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20009
8 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Experience the rapture of Sister Bohemia. Hosted by Simone Jacobson of Words, Beats, & Life , this event is a must-see, featuring musical guests, Tamika “Love” Jones and Carolyn Malachi.
Tamika Love Jones, a DC native and representative in her own right, charms music lovers with a gospel-jazz tonality aimed to touch the soul. Invited to work with the likes of artists Faith Evans, Mya and Grammy Award Winner, songwriter, Denise Rich, Jones is no stranger to the prospect of stardom; still, she walks her own path, performing at live festivals, private events, and especially community affairs, where her music moves the hearts and hopes of many.
Moving and shaking her audience, not to mention the jazz genre altogether, is Smart Chicks Inc. founder and poster chick, Carolyn Malachi. Having finished a February tour in sunny South Africa, only to bring a hot spell to Georgetown’s Blues Alley, the trailblazer makes her way to Bohemian Caverns, where the day is hot, but the night will blaze. Also a Maryland-DC dweller, Malachi continues to advance theRevenge of the Smart Chicks movement with what she calls a “haute-eclectic-soular-blues.” Great-granddaughter to jazz pianist, John Malachi, and acclaimed activist as well, Carolyn Malachi is nothing short of a headliner.
