Geoff Browning, legislative assistant for Rep. Katherine Clark, D-Mass., has a pretty serious music career on the side of his Capitol Hill job.
His band, Of Tomorrow, is playing tonight at the 9:30 Club (815 V St., NW) with other musicians, including Karl Denson of the Rolling Stones, Melvin Seals of the wider Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia Band family and Alan Evans of Soulive.
Browning’s shows are usually packed with staffers so don’t miss out. The show is at 9 p.m. and tickets are $25.

ICYMI: The photographs that had the Capitol laughing yesterday
A very casual Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., sat outside the Russell Senate Office Building with Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., to hang out with colleagues walking by. Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., John Cornyn, R-Texas, and an also very casual Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., stopped to chat. Mark Wilson of Getty Images got it all on camera.
