The MarchFourth Marching Band, a contemporary marching band featuring stiltwalkers and fire-dancers, will be performing at Artisphere in Rosslyn (1101 Wilson Blvd) tonight, Nov. 14.

MarchFourth will take the stage at Artisphere’s ballroom at 9:00 p.m. Tickets are $15.

“MarchFourth Marching Band (M4 to its fans) is a kaleidoscope of musical and visual energy that inspires dancing in an atmosphere of celebration,” Artisphere said in a press release. “Visually enhanced by costumed dancing beauties, acrobatic stilt walkers, unicycles, life size marionettes and many more theatrics, M4 invokes dancing in the streets and beyond! The sound is huge, melodic and dynamic, taking audiences on a musical journey around the globe.”

The Portland, Ore.-based band, formed in 2003, has performed at the Burning Man Festival in California and as an opening act for singer Gwen Stefani.

    I guess the harmonica player from J. Geils has taken up Tenor Sax.

      Good times, it was like Gogol Bordello and Trombone Shorty had a child that they sold to the circus.

    I can’t tell if they are also members of Gogol Bordello or a crunked-out version of the Village People.

      reminds me a little of Gogol too — but ain’t nuthin’ wrong with that.

      • Hank

        Definitely not!

        Aren’t we all cool with our Gargle Bartholomew references?

  • Becoming indifferent

    Has this been cleared with the Fire Marshal?

    • Hank

      Because it’s flaming? I’m trying to guess the punchline.

  • YTK

    I’d prefer to see the Oingo Boingo Band perform there.

    Looks fun. Does Artisphere have a shuttle from Court House?

    • UA

      Yes. It’s called the metro.
