Marlee in the Mixx at Indlulj on U St
8:00pm listening party upstairs, 11:00pm live in the main room
"This young band -- all members are 24 or younger -- has been packing them in on Friday nights with an ambitious combination of originals and covers touching everything: go-go, hip-hop, R&B, rock and jazz." The band is finally dropping a release of all original material, and the listening session for its "10,000 Hours" EP begins at 8 p.m. at Indulj's upstairs lounge. The $10 cover charge is also good for the live session that starts in the main room at 11:00pm. Info from The Washington Post, Going Out Guide.

The Bullbuckers live at Acre 121 in Columbia Heights
The Bullbuckers begin a monthly residency at Acre 121 on Black Friday. "They play a laid-back style of ska infused with northern soul and early reggae, but the peppy brass section has enough zip to get an entire bar grooving." Plus, in honor of the "holiday," all seasonal drafts, including Abita Christmas Ale and Sam Adams Winter Lager, will be half-price all night. Thanks to The Washington Post, Going Out Guide for this one.
