These days it’s rare to find a musical style that remains provincial, but the greater D.C. area’s grip on go-go is still the heart of the genre. Tight funk blended into hip-hop call and response sets the boogie in motion for the Double Faces Gogo Band, formed in C’ville as a tribute to the musical pioneers who drove the percussive, R&B-driven wave of the ’60s and ’70s. Manager DJ Blacko performs with the group and handles the ones and twos.

Saturday 5/28. $10, 10pm. 21-plus. The Ante Room, 219 W. Water St. 284-8561.
