Colbert beware! Oh So Peligroso returns to the stage this Saturday night and they will surely whip the Velvet Lounge into a sweaty frenzy. For those who are yet to experience the pleasure, Oh So Peligroso put on one of DC's more raucous, engaging live experiences. Thumping bass complements a frenzied guitar workout and drums that are simultaneously muscular and technical, and to this writer's eye, the heady concoction swirls perfectly around the energy brought to the fore by the band's irrepressible frontman. This is a band to experience live at every available opportunity!
The bill will be full of locals (and University of Mary Washington alums to boot) as talented folk singer Brittany Jean and rockers The OK Corral will share the stage, so expect to leave with ringing ears and the beginnings of a legendary hangover. Like every other time you've left the Velvet Lounge, right? Doors at 8:30. The show starts at 9.
