Open since December 2011, Washington, DC’s The Hamilton has successfully blended two standout Nation’s Capital experiences – top-shelf fine dining and worthwhile live concerts – into a seamless combination at their venue on 14th and F Streets, NW. Tonight, to celebrate Valentine’s Day, raw soul crooner Cody ChestnuTT performs live (and tickets are still available)!
Cody ChestnuTT audaciously burst into the national consciousness with his debut double album The Headphone Masterpiece in 2002, the record’s lead single, “Look Good in Leather” striking a chord with gut-bucket soul starved ears of past and present generations. ChestnuTT’s wild guitar work as an on-again/off-again member of the Roots contributed amazing moments like the band’s “The Seed 2.0,” which features his distinctive wail, most notably on the hook. 2012 saw the singer return to the scene from an extended album hiatus with Landing on a Hundred. While not as ostentatious a statement as a debut double LP, it’s overwhelmingly positive critical reviews do showcase an overwhelming positive regard for his style, as well as a joy in having him back as a standout R & B contributor.
As much as ChestnuTT’s performance is expected to leave the standing room crowd in awe, The Hamilton’s menu – both affordably priced and gourmet in style and presentation – is a crowd pleaser as well. Featuring distinctive fare including multiple sushi variations to unique takes on hamburgers and thin crust pizzas, the combination of food and performance is progressive while still maintaining a classic sensibility.
Tonight’s concert starts at 7 PM, with opener Julia Nixon, followed by headliner ChestnuTT. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit The Hamilton’s website on check them out on Twitter and Facebook.
