Around Town: All Things Go Fall Classic 2016 @ Yards Park, 10/8/16

Things are shaping up quite nicely for the All Things Go Fall Classic, the one-day concert festival from All Things Go, scheduled for Yards Park (131 M St. SE, DC) this Saturday!

First, Hurricane Matthew will turn off and miss DC completely, according to the latest weather reports today. It had threatened to potentially dump a lot of rain on us this weekend.

Prior to that good news, All Things Go announced it sold out of its VIP tickets! But you can still buy general admission tickets for the concert this weekend, an extraordinary value still considering headliners Empire of the Sun, Passion Pit, Sylvan Esso, and Christine and the Queens are draws all on their own.

And we knew for sure that this edition of the All Things Go Fall Classic was blessed when earlier this month, Michael Angelakos of Passion Pit canceled most of his concert dates for the rest of the year but spared the Fall Classic! (He will indeed be there!)

And anchor band Empire Of The Sun recently released a video for new single “High and Low,” a track from their upcoming third studio album, Two Vines, set for release on Oct. 28. Watch it on YouTube:

Here is the confirmed schedule for All Things Go Fall Classic:

12pm — Ace Cosgrove
1pm — Sofi Tukker
2pm — POP ETC
3pm — Bishop Briggs
4pm — Christine and the Queens
5:15pm – Sylvan Esso
7pm — Passion Pit
8:45 – Empire of the Sun

Don’t miss out on this great line-up and an opportunity to see these acts all in one place! The $75 festival price may jump to $99 the day of the show, so don’t hesitate to buy now. Tickets are available online.

All Things Go returns with its Fall Classic concert event on Saturday, Oct. 8, hosting headliners Empire of the Sun and Passion Pit in a new location at Yards Park at The Capitol Riverfront (131 M St. SE, DC).

Other acts joining the All Things Go Fall Classic daylong festival lineup include Sylvan Esso, Christine and the Queens, Bishop Briggs, POP ETC, Sofi Tukker, and Ace Cosgrove.

Here at Parklife DC, we’re big admirers of all of the bands, particularly Empire of the Sun and Christine and the Queens. We photographed and reviewed Christine and the Queens at the 9:30 Club at a sold-out show on May 31! This is a great opportunity to see what you missed.

The third annual All Things Go Fall Classic also will feature meals and snacks from some of DC’s most popular culinary vendors!

If you’re feeling flush, you can buy a VIP ticket to the festival, which will provide you with perks like access to a VIP lounge, VIP cash bar and bathrooms, cell phone charging stations, designated shade areas, and more.

By moving to Yards Park, the Fall Classic finds itself in a convenient and popular location on the block between M St., First St., N St., and New Jersey Ave. NE, only a few steps from the Navy Yard Metro Station.

Last year’s All Things Go Fall Classic sold out, so don’t let this cool concert bill pass you by. Tickets are available online! Although early bird tickets are sold out, regular admission and VIP admission are available.

“I don’t quite fit. It’s like Tetris, and I’m the wrong piece,” said Héloïse Letissier, known by her stage name Christine and the Queens, in her sold-out show at the 9:30 Club on Tuesday.

But that is okay by Christine and the Queens. And in fact, the musician has a mantra, tattooed on her arm: “We accept you.”
