Downtempo duo Thievery Corporation formed at the height of lounge culture in the mid ‘90s but Rob Garza and Eric Hilton make music perhaps even more powerful and relevant to our increasingly interconnected world today. Thievery Corporation are now coming home for a three-night run at 9:30 Club. While the first two nights have sold out, tickets are still available for the show on Saturday, Dec. 15.
Swedish electropop band Little Dragon was in town recently for a two-night stint at the Rock and Roll Hotel. The avant-garde group, known for blending a wide range of electronic influences into their music, delivered an energetic performance at the intimate venue.
Emancipator delivered to a packed 9:30 Club on Saturday, making his fifth stop of a 25-city tour to promote his newest album, Baralku, which released from his own label, Loci Records, this past November.
Emancipator, born Doug Appling, released Baralku, his fifth studio album, late last year via his own Loci Records, and it hit #1 on the iTunes Electronic Chart. Emancipator is touring his new album with a show at 9:30 Club *this* Saturday, Feb. 3. You can win tickets to go with Parklife DC!
Good things come in small packages.
Standing just barely 5 feet tall, the Swedish singer-songwriter Yukimi Nagano is no exception. Last Tuesday and Wednesday night, Little Dragon fans in attendance at the 9:30 Club were transported to the future, and not just the weekend. Attendees accustomed to rock and roll gigs might also argue the neon kaleidoscope-colored lighting and the mobile-like twinkling backdrop also transformed the space into that of a rave. The soulful, electro pop quartet who formed in 1996 (while still in high school) played back-to-back shows promoting their much-anticipated fifth studio album, Season High. They added an additional performance following the quick sellout of their first night.
Little Dragon released their latest album Season High on May 5 via Loma Vista Records. The band are touring this summer with two dates at 9:30 Club! The first date sold out, but you can win tickets to go to the second date on Wednesday, Aug. 9, with Parklife DC.
