A little bit about Emmet Swimming, from the State Theatre Web site: Formed in the early 1990s at George Mason University, Emmet Swimming is a four-piece alternative rock band. The band has toured with many successful bands including Dave Mathews Band and the Barenaked Ladies.
The band's unique style has gotten them nominated for 14 Washington Area Music Awards and they have sold over 100,000 albums over the years. Singer Todd Watts explains in an interview: “We’ve tried really hard to make the live shows kind of an emotional roller coaster, and I think thats true with the album(s) as well.”
Patrons must be 18 years or older to enter both shows. For more information, call the State Theatre at (703) 237-0300 or visit their Web site.
