Digable Planets, Arlo Guthrie and Others Coming to The Birchmere

February’s here, but you don’t have to go through the winter dour and alone. There’s plenty of exciting acts coming to The Birchmere (3701 Mt. Vernon Avenue) in Arlandria.

One of the most high profile is Digable Planets, a Grammy-winning hip hop trio from the late 1980s. The show is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 24. Tickets are $55.

Some of the upcoming concerts are sold out, like the Blue Oyster Cult and Three Dog Night concerts.

Tickets are still available for Arlo Guthrie’s concerts on Friday, Feb. 28 and Saturday, Feb. 29. Guthrie is an influential protest and anti-war folk singer-songwriter. His most famous piece is Alice’s Restaurant Massacree, an 18-minute ballad about a littering incident that goes horribly awry.

It’s not the first time in recent memory The Birchmere has featured a transgressive and offbeat artist. John Waters returned for another Christmas special at the venue in December.

Other Birchmere concerts in February include:

Beyond February, other notable upcoming ats at the music hall include Squirrel Nut Zippers, The Oak Ridge Boys, Graham Nash, 10,000 Maniacs, Vanessa Carlton, The Dramatics, Ohio Players, and Don McLean of “American Pie” fame.
