Nov 9: Itzhak Perlman  

Quite possibly the most famous violinist on Earth, Itzhak Perlman and his very skilled fingers are in the capital this month for a solo show. Prepare to be blown away.

Nov 10: HVOB

HVOB is short for ‘Her Voice Over Boys.’ The feminist within us salutes the name, and everyone everywhere salutes the music. HVOB’s latest release, Silk, has been touted by American Thump as a contender for album of the year. The Austrian electronic duo have performed a Boiler Room set, and now they’re bringing that same energy to Omni Space.
