Husband and wife duo Over the Rhine released Love & Revelation, a new studio album, in March. Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler will perform at City Winery on Thursday, April 18.
On Monday, Walk the Moon successfully delivered a performance that made everyone at Rams Head Live forget that the week had only just started! Fans did not waste any time getting to the show either as the venue filled in nicely very shortly after the doors opened. The vibe was like that of a weekend show — and by the time Walk the Moon took the stage, the show had sold-out.
The National stopped at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Friday in their first area appearance since playing The Anthem at the end of 2017, finishing up a string of dates leading up to their own There’s No Leaving New York festival in Queens.
A little over a year ago, The National released Sleep Well Beast, the band’s seventh studio album, via 4AD. They’ve been touring incessantly since, and they are not quite done! The National play a big show at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Friday, Sept. 28.
On a limited US tour to support its new album, What Heaven Is Like, Wussy stopped at DC’s Black Cat for a show that delighted long-time area fans and surely made a few more. Running through an energetic 15-song set tilted toward the new album but also included a few early gems on Saturday, Wussy surely lived up to the high bar rock critic Robert Christgau set when, back in 2005, he called Wussy “the best band in America.”
Wussy released What Heaven Is Like, the band’s seventh studio album, via Shake It! in May, and they soon will embark on a short tour that includes a stop at Black Cat on Saturday, July 14.
