About This Event

Flashband takes a step back to a smaller, simpler Flashband event. This Flashband is designed for deliberate melodies and clear sound. Whether it’s a quiet thoughtful guitar line, or a raucous foot stomping jug band, or something completely different, it’s up to the musicians to decide what they think Flashband Acoustic means.
 
Tickets 
Online ticket sales have ended, but tickets will still be available at the door! See you there!
 
Don’t know what the Flash Band Project is?
Flashband shows bring together a group of musicians who form new, temporary bands (Flashbands). After a short period of rehearsal, we put them on stage for a one-night only show. Read more about it here.
 
The Location:
The Dunes
1402 Meridian Place NW, Washington D.C.
Saturday July 27, 2013, 6pm
 
The rules:
We'll have five bands, composed of 20 musicians that first formed just one month ago. Each band must do a 20 minute set, with:
  • One original song written as a band
  • All brand new bands
  • Their take on the theme, Flashband Acoustic
Get your tickets here:
 
Tickets will also be available at the door ($10) but capacity is 150, so make sure you get a spot by getting them online! We'll post here and on Facebook on show day if the event sells out.
