Suspicious Package rocked out for fans, sports junkies, and politicos Tuesday night at the Bullpen outside Nationals Park before the 49th annual Roll Call Congressional Baseball Game. Despite the heat, the band remained cool, rocking out to “I Wanna Be Sedated,” “Dancing with Myself,” and other popular songs.

The band of friends, which includes writer Tim Burger; USTR’s Christina Sevilla; The Washington Post’s Tom Toles; HUD’s Bryan Greene; and Josh Meyer, Director of Education and Outreach for the Medill National Security Journalism Initiative, has been around since May 2008 and played at gigs such as Journapalooza 2009 at the National Press Club, Rock and Roll Hotel, Hard Rock Café, and the embassies of Finland, Italy, Denmark, and Germany. The band most recently played on Saturday at Meyer’s wedding to The Washington Post’s Michael Chandler.

Spotted at the event were RNC Chairman Michael Steele, House GOP leader John Boehner, Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas), Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas), Janet Donovan, and Politico’s Kiki Ryan.
