The thrill of seeing one's favorite musicians in concert often alleviates the stress of modern life and the sweaty delirium from contracting Beatlemania. Enjoy an aural antidote with today's Groupon: for $8, you get one ticket to see Rusted Root at Taste of DC on Monday, October 10 (a $16 value).

Rusted Root, one of Pittsburgh’s most endearing and endurable bands, pours its frenetic blend of rock and world music into the savory celebration of Taste of DC, splendidly mixing with the evening’s local brews and area aliments. Known for the hit “Send Me On My Way,” which has been heard on television more often than lists of pharmaceutical side effects, Rusted Root’s kinetic chops aid in dance-machine digestion while dissipating passing mood clouds. The global grooves follow an exhilarating lineup of four opening acts, which include Brooklyn-based Americana group Yarn and Latin-infused rock band Lloyd Dobler Effect.

The Taste of DC once again sets Pennsylvania Avenue abuzz with the festive hubbub of more than 60 local restaurants and vendors offering tastes of signature dishes, including Ping Pong Dim Sum, Medium Rare, BGR, Sushi Rock, Lincoln, Cafe Bonaparte, Luke's Lobster, and Amsterdam Falafelshop. Attendees can purchases booklets of tickets ($15 for 10 tickets, not included in this Groupon) to sample Co. Co. Sala's four-cheese bacon mac 'n' cheese, striped with chocolate-covered bacon (two tickets), or the chocolate-onyx parfait's stratified layers of dark-chocolate mousse, vanilla crème brûlée, salted caramel, and crumbly dark-chocolate brownies (two tickets). Sips from more than 60 wineries and craft breweries pour the perfect complement to every entree, dessert, and attempt to joust an equestrian statue.

Taste of DC has many more Groupon-featured acts scheduled this weekend, including Big & Rich, Styx, and the World Chili Eating Championship.
