We've partnered with The Hamilton to offer a pre-show meet & greet with Doyle Bramhall II, son of the late Texas music legend Doyle Bramhall. This (Texas-born) musician, producer, guitarist, and songwriter known for his work with Eric Clapton, Roger Waters and many others.
SPACE IS LIMITED FOR THE MEET AND GREET!
To get your chance at one of the 16 spots for the pre-show meet and greet, you'll need to:
1) Buy your ticket to the concert
2) Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org confirming your ticket purchase
First 16 people to do so by Noon on Friday, Nov 10, will be confirmed for the meet and greet.
Opening for Bramhall will be Althea Grace - a young singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from the Chicago area. Althea’s music can best be described as new age blues with heavy doses of jazz, funk, and soul featuring her powerful, soulful voice and guitar skills to match. She's shared the stage with many notable bands such as X Ambassadors, The Shins & Sylvan Esso. Michael Kaiz of Jambase described Althea as “One of Chicago’s rising gems”.
Join fellow Texans to see Josh Abbott Band LIVE at 9:30 Club. This highly melodic six-piece ensemble has managed to keep a foot in both the Texas music scene and the national country world. Don't miss them when they come to DC!

Conversation with Jeremi Suri about "The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America's Highest Office"
Please join the Millennial Action Project for a conversation with Jeremi Suri, author of "The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America's Highest Office."
Suri’s study of the American presidency focuses primarily on the office itself, rather than on the figures who have held it, to explain voters’ increasing disappointment with chief executives who have failed to effect the level of change people anticipated. Starting with the founders’ conception of the role as a limited one, Suri, a professor of history who holds the Mack Brown Distinguished Chair for Leadership in Global Affairs at the University of Texas, traces the presidency’s increasing importance in a globalized world, showing how unrealistic expectations, heightened campaign rhetoric, and the overwhelming scope of the job, have combined to crowd out bold vision and dwarf actual accomplishments.
Light lunch will be provided. This event is being held in partnership with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute, Lyndon B. Johnson Washington Center, and the Archer Center.
Copies of the book "The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America's Highest Office" will be available for purchase and signing by the author.

He also serves as a key manager of NBC’s political coverage, giving direction to the network’s reporters and producers. Before joining NBC News in 2003, Murray spent five years as a reporter at National Journal.

About the Band
It's been five years now since Wood & Wire sprouted out of the rich musical soil of Austin, Texas. In that time, they've written music, recorded albums, and performed at some of the most notable festivals and venues across the country. In the often tightly defined genre of bluegrass music, Wood & Wire's ethos is not unheard of. Nor are the elements of song crafting, so often associated with their Texas home, that permeate their sound. That said, what comes out of the Wood & Wire blender is something entirely its own.
