Here’s a picture: You on a warm spring day at an open-air stage, beer in hand, watching three local cover bands covering the Talking Heads, The Police, and Paul Simon.

It was a cold rainy night, in Old Town Alexandria, when me and a few friends, heard music coming from a restaurant and decided to get out of the rain. We walked into The Light Horse, which offered exciting food, a fun bar, and with great live music upstairs. On a recent night that great live music came in the form of the 7 Deadliest, a cool DC cover band.
