I've been meaning to post this for weeks now, but better late than never! Get ready for a big crowd to descend on the Southwest Waterfront on the 4th of July from 3-10 pm because there will be a large festival taking place called The Uncle Sam Jam. There will be four party areas and stages surrounding Zanzibar and Hogate's, with five bands, including Soul Asylum, Virginia Coalition, Full Effect, Back to Zero, and Mike Leverone Duo. In addition, there will be six DJs, including Flounder's Mash Ups, DJ Chris Styles, DJ Maskell, DJ Image, Chris Avalos, and DJ Ramzy. Food will be provided by Famous Dave's BBQ and DC Slices. General Admission tickets are currently $15 and VIP tickets are $50, but prices will increase closer to the event.
