The Birchmere is one of the area’s most historic musical venues. It’s been open for decades and is located just a few minutes from Old Town Alexandria. The Birchmere has a particularly solid lineup this Labor Day weekend, kicking off with surf guitar legend Dick Dale on Thursday August 30th. Also performing for Labor Day weekend are soul crooner Jeffrey Osborne and saxophonist Kim Waters.
The just-opened Audi Field in Southwest Washington is a state-of-the-art home for soccer – the perfect place to welcome European star Wayne Rooney, who officially joined with the D.C. United club earlier this year. For Labor Day Weekend, Rooney and his teammates will take on Atlanta United FC on Sunday, September 2. You can also catch them at home earlier in the week on August 29 against the Philadelphia Union.
