Hailing from Brooklyn, Yeasayer consists of Chris Keating, Ira Wolf Tuton, and Anand Wilder. The band took the stage at 9:30 Club recently under a simple, long, sequin fabric running from the ceiling to the floor, almost acting like a makeshift disco ball. Everyone set their instruments, and they were ready for the night to begin.

Flashback to more than 10 years ago, you could’ve caught me singing “L.E.S Artistes” by Santigold on repeat on my iPod — but that song came to life recently at The Fillmore Silver Spring. Santigold: 10 Years Golder Tour featured the full self-titled debut album for an eager crowd, ready to soak up the nostalgia feels of her album and other songs too.

I had the great honor of covering Kali Uchis and Jorja Smith last year in 2018 (check those posts out by clicking on the artists’ names).
