After an absence from the DC metro area of nearly three years, Mikaela Davis stopped in at DC9 Monday night and performed a set that spanned musical genres from dream pop to country to straight ahead rock. Who would have thought that a harpist could be so versatile? With a voice that is strong and pure, and instrumental chops that rival any lead guitarist’s, Mikaela’s set wowed the faithful crowd.

With Florence Welch’s vocals and positive messages of love, and her band’s energy permeating the concert hall, Florence and the Machine delivered a dramatic and romantic performance that left concert-goers satisfied and returning fans confirmed that Florence and the Machine was worth experiencing again in a sold-out show at The Anthem on Friday.
At sold-out Lincoln Theater, Devonté Hynes, better known as Blood Orange, gave an amazing performance. His style of funk-R&B shined on stage. He highlighted every single supporting instrument through out the night, making sure that everyone has their moment to shine. Effortlessly, Blood Orange showcased his dreamy tunes and alt-pop sound to DC.
