Performing to a sold-out audience on Friday, Lake Street Dive became one of those bands.
Lettuce recently released Witches’ Stew, a live album tribute to their hero Miles Davis, via Lettuce Records. Even more recently, the funk band teamed with Marcus King to perform at The Anthem on Nov. 3! Nathan Payne shot the show.

Over two decades ago, a New York rap crew delivered a roundhouse kick that would forever change hip hop. The emcees of Wu-Tang Clan melded their unique rhyme styles with gritty beats, lo-fi production, and kung-fu metaphors to create their debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). The Wu struck again recently. The RZA, the GZA, Young Dirty Bastard, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon the Chef, U-God, Ghostface Killah, Masta Killa, Method Man, Mathematics, and Cappadonna were at DC’s The Anthem on Nov. 1 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the iconic album.
