The Arctic Monkeys announced a show at The Anthem on Saturday, July 28 — and it promptly sold out! Thankfully, the lads from Sheffield added a second date on Sunday, July 29, and tickets are still available for that performance!
Mondays suck, but not when The Kills are in town. The British-American indie rock band, consisting of American singer Alison Mosshart and English guitarist Jamie Hince, played for a packed Lincoln Theatre Monday night.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra played at the 9:30 Club on Friday in support of their new album, Sex + Food, their fourth record released in April via Jagjaguwar. The crowd was super pumped to see UMO, and that’s always a good indicator that the show will be a good one.
The sentiment in ZZ Top‘s 1983 hit is just as applicable today in 2018 as it was 35 years ago: “‘Cause every girl crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man.”
District ladies (and many a gentleman) know a thing or two about fashion and one fan in particular wasn’t shy about applauding the lead singer’s tailored, red three-piece ensemble. “Mr. Hammond — nice suit!”
Albert Hammond Jr. quickly responded: “In fact, it is!” The audience later learned, after witnessing the musician engage in nearly 40 minutes of of onstage cardio in that recent performance at U Street Music Hall, “Wool does not sweat well.”
A little under a year ago, Austin psychedelic rockers The Black Angels released Death Song, their fifth studio album, via Partisan Records. The quintet now has teamed up with the Black Lips, and together the bands launch The Birds and the Bees Tour, which arrives at 9:30 Club on Monday, April 9. You can win tickets to see them with Parklife DC!
