Danceability has always been a crucial part of pop music throughout the ages, but which decade -- the '80s or the '90s -- had the songs that can still make modern feet move? That very question will be answered in one night at The Fillmore as Biz Markie and several top cover bands curate a stream of hits from both the '80s and '90s. Markie, a beatboxer and rapper known for his 1989 top 10 song "Just a Friend," plays host and DJ while '80s cover band The New Romance and '90s cover band Here's to the Night open and close the lineup with expert renditions of your favorite dance-worthy songs from their respective eras. Hosted by HOT 99.5, Washington, D.C.'s Top 40 and pop radio station, The Fillmore Flashback will prove once and for all which decade had the best tunes. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights

Take a glorious musical tour through Scandinavia’s masters with favorites from Edvard Grieg, Carl Nielsen, Arvo Pärt, Jean Sibelius and more! Plus Seven Songs for Planet Earth, a world premiere commission from leading Finnish composer Olli Kortekangas. Drawing texts from environmentalist and poet Wendell Berry, St. Francis of Assisi, and ancient Sami verse as well as quotes from members of the Children’s Chorus of Washington, this bold new work celebrates man’s relationship with nature in its richness and fragile vulnerability, reminding us all that respect and love for Earth should be seen as a fundamental element of human life.
