The singer who is not the future namesake of National Airport played the Fillmore Silver Spring Monday—and regrets her error with regard to the name of the town:
Wow ok just found out I was calling Silver Spring, MD tonight Silver Springs -plural- all night. No one said a thing. 🙈 And then- Twitter. Damn. I’m sorry silver spring(!) I fucking loooove u u were so much fun !!!! 🙈

The great lost Buckingham-Nicks breakup song was in fact inspired by the name of the DC suburb. As Rolling Stone reported in 2017:
The title came from Silver Spring, Maryland: While passing through the town on tour, Nicks romanticized the name. “It sounded like a pretty fabulous place to me,” she said in the Classic Albums documentary about Rumours. “It’s a whole symbolic thing of what [Lindsey] could have been to me.”

No doubt: “You say you’re from DC / But your drivers license says Silver Springs, MD” is a quality diss, but it’s a lightly fact-checked one.
