Lounging at BlackRock
Chaise Lounge closes ‘Third Thursday’ series April 19.
BlackRock Center for the Arts will end its Third Thursday season by lounging around its black box theater.
That is, with the help of D.C.-based jazz quintet Chaise Lounge.
The group performs at 7:30 p.m. April 19 and is the final act of the arts venue's Third Thursday at the BlackRock Bistro series.
According to their press materials, the performers — Charlie Barnett, Tommy Barrick, Gary Gregg, John Jensen and Pete Ostle, with vocalist Marilyn Older — were going for something evocative of Capitol Records “circa-1962” or “Lounge with a capital ‘L’”.
The BlackRock stop precedes an insomnia-themed cocktail party/performance named for the group’s latest album, “Insomnia,” on Saturday, April 21, at The Hamilton.
