Music in Anacostia
Hip Hop and Jazz
With the rapid decline of music venues in the District, the Anacostia Arts Center aims to provide a home for a variety of live musical performances.

For two seasons, this non-profit organization has hosted All The Way Live Tuesdays! and Second Sunday Jazz for free. Artists such as Wes Felton, Cecily, Aztec Sun, Leftist, Dior Ashley Brown to name but a few, have entertained audiences on the last Tuesday of the month.

Additionally, our Second Sunday Jazz series, in partnership with East River Jazz, has produced months of "grown folks music" in a relaxing atmosphere.

We look forward to kicking off a new season in January. With your support we can keep DC music local. We're always looking for local artists to perform, visit our website for more information.
