Don’t Miss: High Waisted @ DC9, 3/3/18

NYC surf rockers High Waisted return to DC9 for a show of stupefying awesomeness on Saturday, March 3.

Vocalist Jessica Louise Dye and company blew us out of the water with their DC concerts in 2016 (–they were indeed a Parklife DC Top 10 Concert of 2016). Since that time, High Waisted have been recording new material and getting even more edgy while pumping up their brash guitar power, presumably building up to a sophomore album to follow 2016’s On Ludlow.

Watch the official music video for “Firebomb” by High Waisted on YouTube:

In preview reviews, we have observed: “As much as the audience adores Jessica’s voice, some of the most fun and absorbing numbers from High Waisted are the instrumentals!”

“Playing guitar while she sings, Jess brings a lot of energy to the stage but at the same time she fits like an interlocking block with her bandmates — drummer Jono Bernstein, guitarist Steven Nielsen and bassist Jeremy Hansen. Together, the men are also a bit of a contradiction, much like their lead singer. They play wonderfully loose, shimmery beats — but at the same time, they are amazingly sharp.”

High Waisted are guaranteed to impress. Buy your tickets online.
