Deerhunter hit 9:30 Club and then Ottobar over the weekend, and Jason Nicholson took in both shows! Here, he shares some photos of Deerhunter at the band’s recent show at Ottobar.
With critically acclaimed eighth studio album Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? released January 18, Atlanta’s Deerhunter have now embarked on an extensive tour that includes a date at 9:30 Club on Saturday, March 2.
It may look difficult to pull off a major stage show on the intimate confines of the Rams Head Live stage in Baltimore, but don’t try telling that to Sevendust, who put on a display that could counter any arena act. With exquisite lighting and smoke machines put to use with purpose, the guys in Sevendust brought a major stadium feeling into the club recently.
The devil went down to Georgia, but a sweet angel came to Alexandria from Atlanta recently in the form of singer-songwriter Carly Burruss.
Carly is currently touring with Kasey Chambers and provided a warm and energized opening set at The Birchmere on Tuesday.
“She is in the zone tonight.”
You could truly say that of Cat Power at 9:30 Club on Sunday. But in the past, that wasn’t a comment one might expect to hear at her show. Although she’d long produced great work in the studio, indie rocker Chan (pronounced Shawn) Marshall’s live sets had a tendency to go off the rails. Before she got sober, alcohol compounded Chan’s stage fright, which she faced by taking the prescription anti-anxiety drug Xanax — the two do not mix especially well.
Charlyn Marie “Chan” Marshall, better known as Cat Power, released Wanderer, her 10th studio album, in October via Domino. She’s coming to 9:30 Club on Sunday, Dec. 16.
