The Motet rolled into DC recently and put in a two-hour funk show that turned into a dance party at the 9:30 Club.
Denver-based funk collective The Motet released Death or Devotion, the band’s ninth studio album, via their own label in January. The Motet are on tour with a stop at 9:30 Club on Saturday, March 9.
When Nathaniel Rateliff took the stage at The Anthem, his eyes widened as he surveyed the vastness of DC’s newest and largest music venue at The Wharf.
“I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t know we were playing here when we got to DC; I never heard of The Anthem,” Nathaniel confided to the audience. “This place is huge, and I can’t believe ya’ll filled it up!” The 6,000-plus sell-out crowd responded with a roar of appreciation last week.
Big Samir hails from Brussels, Belgium, and Aja Black was born in Queens, New York. Together, they are The Reminders, a hip hop/soul duo who got a lot of attention with their first two albums -– 2008’s Recollect and 2012’s Born Champions.
More immediately, The Reminders joined DC’s Thievery Corporation for a run of dates as an opening act on Thievery’s 20th anniversary tour, which ended with three sold-out shows at the 9:30 Club on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. (Check out Paivi’s pictures of Thievery Corporation from Friday night’s show.)
