Post-punk meets gospel? You don’t need faith to believe, my friends, as we have the living proof with Atlanta quartet Algiers! Frontman Franklin James Fisher and company return to their favorite place to perform in DC, the Black Cat, on Thursday, March 12!
You can win a pair of tickets to see the show with Parklife DC.

Shemekia Copeland took command of the stage at the AMP by Strathmore recently as her band played the opening notes of the blues-rock anthem “Ain’t Got Time for Hate.” Co-written by ace songwriters John Hahn and Will Kimbrough (who also produced), the song leads off her latest album, the roots-infused America’s Child.

The titans of gospel took everyone to church when The Blind Boys of Alabama performed a show at City Winery in DC on Sunday. The Grammy Award winning group put out a 90-minute set which, by the end, had the crowd on its feet, dancing with hands raised, and giving the occasional, “Amen” to the men on the stage.

Franklin James Fisher performs with Algiers at Black Cat on June 28, 2018.
You’ll believe in the effectiveness of soul music as a form of protest when you see Algiers, the experimental rock quartet from Atlanta.
Frontman Franklin James Fisher has a powerful voice that goes low or hits high when called upon to do so, but mostly it booms gracefully through a room as it did at Black Cat on Thursday.
