Free, Pop/Rock, Summer Concerts | Saturday, Jul 22, 2017 | 7:00 PM | $Free
If you hear someone screaming “Get Off My Lawn!” in the suburbs of Washington, DC, it’s probably not a cranky old man yelling at his neighbors. It’s probably a large group of devoted fans shouting the name of their favorite band, Get Off My Lawn, which covers an eclectic mix of classic to modern rock, from Aerosmith to ZZ Top, Pat Benatar to Elle King, Maroon 5 to Black Keys. The band is known for its guitar-heavy sound and driving rhythm section, and for playing dynamic sets that get crowds on their feet. If it rocks, they’ll roll with it.
Five low-key guys and one fireball, Get Off My Lawn combines veteran players who have been in the DC and Detroit music scene for much of the last 15 years. Since its inception, the band has enjoyed a strong fan following and regularly packs the house. Within their first year, Get Off My Lawn earned the headlining role at University of Maryland’s Homecoming Bash, and has since been invited to play at DC’s Rock ‘N Roll Marathon and the City of Rockville’s Hometown Holidays, as well as a variety of other public and private events. BlackRock is thrilled to have Get Off My Lawn debuting, ironically, on our outdoor stage this summer – so get ready to get ON our lawn and let GOML heat up your summer.
Members: Dave (Bass), Kevin (Keys), Mark (Guitar, Vocals), Nicole (Vocals, Cowbell), Russell (Drums, Cowbell), Tobey (Guitar, Vocals)
Our summer concerts are free, but BlackRock incurs hefty expenses to keep the beloved concert series going, including artist fees, overhead, and technical costs. Any donation you can give is welcome and super helpful in offsetting some of the financial limitations of putting on these amazing outdoor shows. Donate to our Give on the Green campaign and help us keep our summer concerts free!
All Summer Concerts will be performed on the BlackRock front lawn, weather permitting. In the case of inclement weather, the concert will move inside to the BlackRock Mainstage. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the up-to-date performance information.
