Carl Hulse, the deputy bureau chief for the NYT, has a band called The NativeMakers. Hulse is an accomplished drummer and the band has quite the following around Capitol Hill. They are best known for their covers of classic rock songs by the Rolling Stones, the Allman Brothers, among others. Something tells me they won’t be covering Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Niggas in Paris” or Justin Bieber‘s “Boyfriend.”
The band has invited all of Washington D.C. to see them perform at the 18th Amendment this Saturday night at 9pm in a concert they are calling “Rock and Roll Apocalypse.” Previous gigs have lured Luke Russert and Rahm Emmanuel into the crowd, so you never know who might show up.
