Live Review: Alvvays @ Rock & Roll Hotel, 10/8/17

I’ve been smitten with Canadian cuties Alvvays since I first heard their self-titled debut long player all the way back in 2014. Yet somehow, the stars hadn’t ever aligned as far as getting to see the dynamic dream popsters live. Until last weekend, that is.

The band was booked in for a two-night stint at the Rock & Roll Hotel, and yours truly went to the second night of that twosome. So sold out was this particular show that I walked into the main room and almost smack dab into a wall of bodies. It was at that moment that I ...

The jet lag has just about left the building, and I’m back to feeling like an almost-human again. Which is a good thing, because it’s prime show-going season. Keep an eye out for yours truly at any show with an asterisk. And now, without further ado, here’s a look at some of the shows I happen to recommend ...

I’m back from my exceptionally delightful vacation over across the pond, and despite my jet lag am relatively ready to get back into the swing of things. That includes going to some shows, because there’s too many good ones around just now to miss. Because I only got back last night (and was incoherent until right about now), I’m ...

I don’t know about you, friends, but I can’t believe September is just around the corner.

Live Review: Tei Shi @ Songbyrd Music House, 5/12/17

Intrepid mysterious Special Guest Star The Paper went in search of good live sounds, and the following is what transpired when he took in Tei Shi at Songbyrd Music House.

Venturing into DC on a Friday night is always a tedious proposition. It becomes exponentially more so when it rains. However, the gloomy traffic certainly did not stop the massive crowd that greeted me behind the curtain at Songbyrd. The show sold out so I expected some early attendance. The place was half packed and dancing to Salt Cathedral. I welcomed the loud distraction from the arduous trek I just ...

Live Review: Perfume Genius @ 9:30 Club, 5/15/17

Intrepid mysterious Special Guest Star The Paper went in search of good live sounds, and the following is what transpired when he took in Perfume Genius at the 9:30 Club.

I have seen over a hundred bands every year for five out of the last six years. Not once was the headliner scheduled to go on as early as half past seven. Besides, the overwhelming majority of the time, sets never start on time. I am dismayed to report that I missed the first three songs of Perfume Genius. Thankfully, many did not make the mistake I did given the ...

Between the cicadas and this icky sticky faux summer outside, May is kind of being a pain. There is only one kind of sweat I don’t hate, and it’s got nothing to do with above 90 degree temperatures and one thousand percent humidity. Just a reminder that summer is coming and it’s going to be yucky. What isn’t yucky ...
