Grace Potter, Beach Boys, Sturgill Simpson, and others will perform at D.C.'s waterfront music venue this year.

There's so much to look forward to in 2020, and live music is at the top of our list. While much more will be announced throughout the year, The Anthem's already accumulated quite the lineup. There's Americana folk, jazz, and psych-rock on this list alone, as well as a mix of headliners and indie artists building up momentum. Here are some highlights to look forward to at D.C.'s preeminent waterfront venue in 2020.

Grace Potter | January 25 | Doors 6:30 p.m. | Show 8 p.m.

The blueswoman endured a volatile time of heartbreak with the dissolution of both her band The Nocturnals and her marriage; it was uncertain whether she'd continue making music. Now she's back with her solo record Daylight, which she'll tour starting January 8 in Charleston, South Carolina. Witness the songwriter strike an unshakeable balance of power and vulnerability as she shocks with "Love Is Love," "Back To Me," and the show-stopping title track. Nashville-based Devon Gilfillian will open the show, preparing audiences for a night of passionate rock and blues. Tickets are $45-$75—order them here!

Calexico and Iron & Wine | February 7 | Doors 6:30 p.m. | Show 8 p.m.

When two musical minds meet, the result can be extraordinary. Case in point: Calexico and Iron & Wine. The elusive songwriter and Americana group meld their respective talents on the 2005 EP In The Reins, and now their joint effort Years To Burn showcases the satisfying fruits of their hard-worked labor. Hear the single "Father Mountain" and the sprawling three-parter "The Bitter Suite (Pajaro/ Evil Eye/ Tennessee Train)" for the folk epic you never knew you needed. Tickets are $45. Purchase them here!

The Beach Boys | April 7 | Doors 6:30 p.m. | Show 8 p.m.

Those pitch-perfect harmonies. Those legendary songs: "Kokomo." "Good Vibrations." "Surfin' USA." The Beach Boys are as American as apple pie, and this April you can feel some California sunshine with a memorable show at the Anthem. Fronted by Mike Love, you'll be swaying and grooving to the sounds of "America's Band." No opener, because honestly, do the Beach Boys need an introduction? Tickets are $57.50-$127.50.
