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 DC's Top 40 and pop radio station, the Fillmore Flashback will prove once and for all which decade had the best tunes. Learn More

A graduate of the Conservatoire de Paris, Descharmes is a founding member of the leading French contemporary ensemble Court-Circuit. He has also worked with the Ensemble Intercontemporain and Ensemble Alternance, and collaborates regularly with IRCAM (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique), a renowned institute in Paris dedicated to the research and creation of contemporary music. His audacious project “30 ans > 30 créations” — cataloging the artistic output of 30 contemporary composers over three decades — was premiered at Paris’ Cité de la musique, followed by a tour to other parts of Europe. Since 2004, Descharmes has recorded for the æon label, which has released the works for cello by Saariaho and Liszt (Diapason d’Or of the Year, 2007) and, with his artistic collaborator Sébastien Vichard, Schubert and Huber anthologies.
