Palma Violets perform at the Rock and Roll Hotel on Monday, May 11, in support of their new album, Danger in the Club, which just came out last week. In anticipation of the show, Mickey McCarter chatted with Palma Violets drummer William Martin Doyle, and he was everything you would expect in a member of the Palma Violets — quick witted, convivial and down to earth! I asked him about the new album, touring and his reputation as part of a great live band.

The Loud Boyz, DC’s buzzy punk rock quintent, released a 7” record on Tuesday, and they are heading to Comet Ping Pong Saturday to play a vinyl release show.
The 7” disc includes two songs from Kenny, Mitchell, Devin, Rory and Alex: “Hard Feelings” and “4 The Ladies.” Catch the video of “4 The Ladies” below.
“Loud Boyz always bring the fight live, and aren’t afraid to crack a smile while doing it,” says their label Cricket Cemetery. You can order the vinyl, limited to 300 copies, from Cricket Cemetery or undoubtedly buy it at the show on Saturday (for $6).
The Loud Boyz debuted the “4 The Ladies” video on YouTube in December after filming it at the Gibson Guitar showroom in DC’s Chinatown. In the video, the band rocks out through a 2.5-minute jam for a room full of ladies. Listen to some of their songs on Soundcloud:
DC garage rockers Shark Week perform with the Loud Boyz Saturday. Tickets are available at the door.
