Music Park: EZTV @ Lincoln Theatre, 9/18/16

EZTV 02 EZTV perform at the Lincoln Theatre on Sunday, Sept. 18.

Ms. Jenny Lewis toured the 10th anniversary of her seminal album Rabbit Fur Coat recently and brought her friends EZTV along to open for her when she and The Watson Twins stopped at the Lincoln Theatre in DC on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 17-18.

Frontman Ezra Tenenbaum played guitars alongside Shane O’Connell and Michael Stasiak as the trio delighted the very full room with some bright, jangly guitars. Maybe it was the influence of their headliner, but the Brooklyn power pop trio delivered a sunny set of songs that were overall a bit more folky than what might have been anticipated. That was more than fine by our audience, who were bopping and grooving along to EZTV’s easy-going vibes by the end of their show.

As the year 2015 winds down, we at Parklife DC are looking forward to our first recommended show of 2016!

And it’s going to be a pretty good one: Shoegazing collective A Sunny Day in Glasgow have returned with a new double EP, Planning Weed Like It’s Acid/Life Is Loss, and they are returning to DC to perform at Comet Ping-Pong on Sunday, Jan. 3, 2016.

Songwriter Ben Daniels, the band’s founder, brings regular players with him in the form of drummer Adam Herndon, vocalist and cellist Anne Fredrickson, vocalist Jen Goma, vocalist and guitarist Josh Meakim, and bassist Ryan Newmyer. The six-person cooperative are in good form with their new material, their first release since their critically applauded 2014 album, Sea When Absent, which Pitchfork said “has an atmospheric, bleeding-watercolor quality that makes it sound a little bit like a My Bloody Valentine record if the moodiness and pensiveness were replaced with a feeling of almost violently explosive joy.”

The happy, hopeful attitude continues on their most recent synthy single, “Hey, You’re Mine,” which singer Jen described to Spin as an internal conversation with yourself about moving forward.
