San Fermin, Ellis Ludwig-Leone’s chamber pop collective, released Belong, its third studio album, via Downtown Records on April 7. The band perform at 9:30 Club on Wednesday, May 10, and you can win tickets to go with Parklife DC!
After a few songs at 9:30 Club on Sunday night, Vérité turned to a much anticipated cover.
“I didn’t write this one,” Vérité said with a smile to a pretty full house, gathering to see her and Betty Who in a sold-out show that night. She then launched into her cover of “Somebody Else” by the 1975.
Andrew Savage zipped into DC from Los Angeles, fresh from the Grammy Awards, where he was nominated for Best Recording Package for his band Parquet Courts’ fifth album, Human Performance.
The artist for David Bowie’s Blackstar album took that award, but Andrew was upbeat about it. “I won,” he quipped to a large crowd at 9:30 Club on Monday. “The director of The Recording Academy told us we were all winners. That sounds pretty official to me.”
Post-grunge quartet Charly Bliss came to the Black Cat Sunday to party like it’s 1999 — or more accurately some few years prior to 1999.
Steve Gunn came to DC with Lee Renaldo on Friday mostly to mourn the results of the election. He began his set with “Old Strange,” a song from his 2013 album Time Off, which was about the surprise death of a friend.
Parquet Courts released Human Performance, a tremendous fourth studio album, last year via Rough Trade. They then toured lots and lots.
Now they are touring some more! And they return with their outstanding new songs to play again at the 9:30 Club on Monday, Feb. 13. (Read our Parklife DC review of Parquet Courts’ last 9:30 Club show!)
