1981_DC_4th_Concert_8107046DC -- 4th of July Concert @ U.S. Capitol (1981)
The PBS-covered Fourth of July concerts started this year. I didn't see the big concert by the Capitol though. That was for old fogies. I did the one by the Washington Monument (Sylvan Theater) instead. Those pretty well died out over the years.

Personally, I find Fourth of July in downtown DC to be mostly about crowds, heat, and humidity. Having said that, the fireworks are spectacular and there's a wonderful free concert put on at the Capital which you can never get close enough to. I'm used to being within 50 feet of the stage at Wolf Trap....
