Methyl Ethel have been taking Australia by storm with the catchy dreampop on their sophomore album Everything Is Forgotten, released last month via 4AD. The band is charging across the world for a US tour, and they will land at DC9 on Saturday, April 22.
Colin Hay admittedly by no stretch has had a tragic life, as he readily confessed Monday night in the second of two sold-out shows at The Birchmere. Still, as the evening progressed, it was clear that Colin, always humorously introspective, was haunted by ghosts.
Psychedelic rockers King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard released their ninth studio album on Feb. 24 via ATO Records in the United States and Flightless Records in their native Australia. They are on tour with a local concert at 9:30 Club on Wednesday, March 29. Parklife DC is giving away a pair of tickets to go!
Colin Hay, the distinctive baritone voice behind Men at Work, has been solo for a long while now. The prolific singer-songwriter is about to release his 13th solo album, Fierce Mercy, on March 3 via Compass Records. Leading up to that, he will set upon a tour that includes two stops at The Birchmere Music Hall on Sunday, March 12, and Monday, March 13. (The Sunday date is already sold out.)
“This is our last song. You know what it is.” As the heady notes of “Sweet Disposition” reached the dancing part of our brains, everyone at the crowded 9:30 Club not moving suddenly found invigorating purpose. Dougy Mandagi, lead singer of The Temper Trap, brought the dancing throngs to an epic finish for their show on October 6th. “A moment of love, a dream, a laugh, a kiss, a cry.”
