Live Review: Maxïmo Park @ U Street Music Hall, 11/28/17

Somehow, I’d managed to forget just how much I adore seeing Maxïmo Park live. Believe me, after this most recent DC show it’s something I shan’t forget again. In my humble opinion, they’re one of the best live bands around.

Gracing the U Street Music Hall stage once again, the Newcastle outfit played a lengthy set to an enthusiastic mid-week crowd. The 20-song set struck a balance between the band’s newest material (from latest record Risk to Exist) to some of the oldest (from the divine A Certain Trigger).

Live Review: Bully at U Street Music Hall, 11/15/17

“We’re Bully, thanks for having us,” came the disarmingly unassuming opening salvo from the stage. Certain people really were born to be on the stage. Bully‘s Alicia Bognanno is one of these people. With a presence both powerful and engaging, Bognanno and her Nashvillean bandmates put on a heck of a show at DC’s U Street Music Hall.

Bognanno’s sweet and sour vocals were on display from the get go, driving the band’s wonderful, grungy racket. From sweet coos to almost feral howls, the lady owned the stage. The Sub Pop darlings were incredibly dynamic, perfectly rough around the edges ...

Hard to believe Thanksgiving is next week, isn’t it? The year is winding down with alarming speed all of a sudden. I wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving, and hope you enjoy some turkey/tofurkey with folks you care about. Gigwise, it’s a lot thinner on the ground than it was last week, which is probably good ...

It seems like only yesterday that The Cribs first blipped on my radar, but that yesterday was over a decade ago. This band of brothers has been making their fantastic noise since 2002, and is so cool that Johnny Marr was a member back in the late 2000s. 

The band is touring new record 24-7 Rock Star Shit, and one of their US stops just so happens to be the U Street ...
