Allah-Las will take you to sunny California at the drop of a record needle. The garage rockers famously formed a band when three of its four members were working at Amoeba Music, and their articulate surf-influenced music certainly sounds like it was made by musicians who absorbed as much of their surroundings as possible.

Louisiana gospel-garage quartet Seratones have been busy this year, and they aren’t quite done with DC in 2016!

In May, the band dropped their debut album, Get Gone via Fat Possum, and they have been burning up the touring circuit all year. In support of that album, Seratones will visit DC9 on Thursday, Oct. 20.

Watch Seratones perform “Don’t Need It” on CBS This Morning on March 5, 2016, via YouTube:

Seratones are AJ Haynes (vocals), Connor Davis (guitar), Adam Davis (bass), and Jesse Gabriel (drums), but AJ particularly has drawn a lot of appraise for her powerful voice.

“Seratones singer-guitarist A.J. Haynes takes gospel into the garage, and what comes out is fiery rock ‘n’ roll,” said NPR Music.

Baltimore rockers The Milestones open. Tickets are available online.

The Electric Six are a band that gets straight to the point.

“Buy our new album so the Electric Six can continue touring,” said Electric Six frontman Dick Valentine at the Black Cat on Sunday night. “Buy our new album so that we can buy gas and pay tolls on our way to Philadelphia — including that one expensive toll over that bridge in Maryland where you don’t know why you have to pay a toll.”
