Superorganism is not any unconventional science project from middle school, but a experimental band that makes really good music. The band showed off what they can do at 9:30 Club recently on their last night of their U.S. tour.
Neil Young & Crazy Horse. Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band. Nils Lofgren has achieved iconic status — and induction in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — playing with these legendary acts, but as he came out a house of fire on “Walkin’ Nerve,” he left no doubt that he is one hell of a rock star in his own right. The Maryland native made a recent homecoming among family, friends, and a packed house, on the first of two nights at The Birchmere.

Married couple Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore have performed, respectively, as the guitarist and the fiddler in Steve Earle’s band, The Dukes since 2010. They also record and perform as an acoustic duo, The Mastersons. They played new material at The Birchmere recently as openers for Steve.

A friend’s college-aged son, Patch, asked me a year ago if I had heard of this new band, Greta Van Fleet?
No, I hadn’t, and who where they? He pulled up their video on his phone and showed me. I proceeded to watch in amazement as these young kids performed their music. I was equally as amazed when I saw them headline the DC101 Kerfuffle at Merriweather Post Pavilion recently.
