I’ve been going to shows at the legendary 9:30 Club since I was a teenager, and have seen some of the best of the best grace that venerable stage. It is a pleasure to be offering a pair of tickets to the following upcoming 9:30/IMP show.

The self-professed psych/soul/tropicalia outfit Chicano Batman sounds like a party and a half, even when their fantastic noise is getting more than a little political. “While we ...

For some dark, almost malevolent beats, look no further than Crystal Castles. Ethan Kath’s diabolic 80s Atari murk sounds are hard to resist, and are enhanced ...

Video of The Day #339: No Kill

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

Today just so happens to be my dearest friend’s birthday, and she’s a huge Pearl Jam fan. Which makes this here video from No Kill so very apropos. “Eddie Vedder” palpitates with sumptuous extravagance, frosted with breathy vocals and an ever-present smoky jangle. The accompanying video is a dreamy, crystalline confection, filled with found footage and tripped-out kaleidoscopic double visions. The sugared colors and ...

Good Cover Version: Slothrust does Marcy Playground

Pulp gave the world the song “Bad Cover Version.” But seeing as I’m a sonic optimist, I’m of the belief that there’s more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

Some of you may be too young to remember, but there was a time (circa 1997) that the Marcy Playground song “Sex and Candy” was everywhere. Seriously, everywhere, to the point that at one moment in time it was vexatiously inescapable. I’ll be honest, I haven’t missed hearing it. 

However, along ...

Singles Club: LORD WILLING + Ski Lodge + Teen Ravine

Consider Singles Club your musical matchmaker. I do hope you’ll give all these ready to mingle bachelors and bachelorettes your ear as you listen to some new favorite tunes. Read on in the hopes of finding your musical love connection.

Much has happened to Justin Long (aka LORD WILLING) since he made the cross country trek from DC to LA. Arrest warrants, near-death experiences, and being left for a drug dealer all make for some bountiful songwriting material, and Long has made the most of his tumult. “Green Doesn’t Look Good on You” is a kind of eccentric lounge ...

Video of The Day #338: FACIAL

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

It all starts innocuously enough, with some Playmobil figures and a handmade cityscape in bright, kid-friendly colors. But then FACIAL enters the scene, and things in the video for “Black Noise” go a bit haywire. As the LA trio’s grimy snarls rumble along, the band gets their dance on and gets a rude awakening from some young ladies. An interesting clip to go along ...

The Week In Shows: 9/18/17-9/24/17

Another beautiful Saturday morning in September seems as good a time as any to plot ones weekly live music schedule, I think. Let’s take a look at what’s happening in the greater DC metro this week, shall we? Hot diggity!

Some of us are going to spend a great deal of time this weekend tearing their hair out trying to pack two week’s worth of crap into a suitcase. Yes, your hostess is preparing to go out of town for a couple weeks, and to say I am horrible at packing is the understatement of the day. Sadly, I won’t ...
