$18 with Fees (Goldstar 1/2 price tickets)
Smash Mouth! Yeah, I know the songs "All Star" and "Walking on the Sun" make you think of the Shrek movies, but here is the deal. Half price tickets from Gold Star to see this band in a small venue like the beautiful Howard Theater located between 7th St and Florida Ave (620 T Street, NWWashington, DC 20001). With the fees the $12.50 ticket goes up to $18, but still a deal. Here is the link: http://www.goldstar.com/e/76715
I hope some of the DC crowd can get there early and save us a good table. If we sit at a table the venue expects a $10 minimum food/drink purchase.
While this band reached great popularity in the late 90's, it has gone through extensive lineup changes over the past decade. It still feature original front man Steve Harwell, who a few may remember from the final season of the Surreal Life.
