Thad Wilson Ugetzu Big Band @ Bohemian Caverns Sat.
Thad Wilson's Ugetzu Big Band, the Monday-night fixture at Bohemian Caverns, is this weekend celebrating the release of their new CD Movin' On. (Disclosure: I authored the liner notes, gratis, for the disc.) Tonight they appear at the weekly Jazz Night festivities at Westminster Presbyterian Church in SW. It's a low-key neighborhood gig, but it's only $5, and they do offer food and drinks for an additional fee.
Tomorrow, though, is the big event: a combination CD release party and Christmas concert at the Caverns, which will also feature D.C. singer Sharon Clark. Two sets, 8:30 and 10:30, and admission is $18. It'll feature both Christmas music and tunes from their standard live repertoire—which also comprise the CD, so you get an album preview to boot.
