We Have a Show Next Week! and more!

A week from now we’re having a show at Solly’s featuring the Shifters, Nayas, and Pablo’s Reggae Sweatshop All-Stars.  All awesome bands to shake yo’ ass to, so come on out!

We’ve also got some great bands coming through over the next few months. Check out our shows list to see what we have coming.  Also, if you have any ska/reggae-related bands that you would like to see play one of our shows, email us at bluebeatdc-at-gmail-dot-com.

We’ve Redone the Site!

Hi everyone!

Hope all is well.  We’ve redesigned our site and hope you like it!  All the content is pretty much the same, but we’ve now converted it to a WordPress site, which will just be easier for us to update.

What’s even cooler is that, thanks to WordPress and the WordPress Mobile Pack, there’s a mobile version of our site, too.  Whip out your phone and check it out – it’s the same URL.  Pretty fancy, right?

Even better, we’ve got a few great shows lined up in the coming months.  In a few weeks, we have Pimpbot all the way from Hawaii joining us with local folks Interstate Rivals and the Chariots.  In March, BlueBeat DC falls on St. Patrick’s Day.  Come celebrate with the Shifters and a few of our other friends.  April will be stellar with two awesome bands – Royal City Riot (NY) and the Beatdown (Canada).  We’re still waiting to confirm the full lineups for these shows, so more will be announced.  All the shows are the 3rd Thursday of the month at Solly’s U Street Tavern at 8pm.

Hope everyone is staying warm during these dreary, cold days.
