Communion is a music collective and monthly club night that was born over seven years ago at the Notting Hill Arts Club as the brainchild of Ben Lovett (Mumford & Sons), Kev Jones (Bear’s Den) and producer Ian Grimble. Since its inception, Communion hasn’t strayed from the literal definition of the word: the sharing or exchanging of intimate thoughts and feelings, especially when the exchange is on a mental or spiritual level. Over the last seven years, Communion has expanded from its humble beginnings to monthly club nights across the world, including the UK, Australia, New York and San Francisco.
Today, we’re excited to announce that All Things Go will be partnering with Communion to bring the energy and excitement of Communion to DC on a monthly basis. Starting this October, we will be delivering some of the most promising musicians to the Black Cat stage, with acts ranging from indie-rock to Americana, and everything in between.
Our first Communion DC event is going down Wednesday, October 2nd at the Black Cat, and features performances from the Yacht Club DJs, Rubblebucket, Roadkill Ghost Choir, and Willy Mason. Just in case you thought five acts weren’t enough, the very first Communion DC will be topped off with DJ sets by Communion founder (and Mumford & Sons member) Ben Lovett as well as a Prince-heavy set from your very own ATG editors. Tickets are on sale now for only $12 advance, so grab yours now, and come join the birth of one of the most legendary monthly nights DC has ever seen.
