Normally a bigger band, Doc Robinson arrived as a duo from Columbus, Ohio, at DC9 and played a stripped down accoustic show. They played a fantastic set on Tuesday.
The Mynabirds, the soulful pop solo project of Laura Burhenn, released Be Here Now, a fourth studio album, via Saddle Creek on Aug. 25. Laura actually released the songs on the album as three EPs prior to collecting them on one record in order to transfer the urgency of the protest music she was making at the time. The Mynabirds now are on tour, and Laura performs at DC9 on Wednesday, Sept. 20.
Columbus indie pop group Doc Robinson will make a stop at DC9 Nightclub on Sept. 19. The stop comes almost exactly two months after the release of their debut full-length album, titled Deep End, which they are currently supporting on their US tour.
“I believe in girls who believe in rock and roll.” So opens “& Rock & Roll” from the Austin, Texas band A Giant Dog from their third album Pile. Seeing the band take the stage at a packed DC9 Sunday night, it’s clear that they not only believe in rock and roll but embody it!
Brick + Mortar put on a great show at DC9 on Saturday, Aug. 19. If the band simply sounded as good as they did, I would have walked away happy. But the duo did even more than that — including a fun use of props.
