Experimental rock band Algiers released their sophomore album The Underside of Power via Matador Records on June 23, and they visit Black Cat in DC with their powerful mix of post-punk and gospel music on Monday, July 24.
Say what you like about R. Kelly, but the man is a hell of an entertainer.
The full-blown cultural icon was at his best (or worst, depending on your point of view) in a boisterous show at MGM National Harbor on Sunday, strutting his stuff, taking every opportunity to mingle with his female fans, and at the end of the day earnestly demonstrating that he’s got the goods, particularly with his naturally gifted voice.
Kari Jobe took to the stage at McLean Bible Church on Friday to excited, pleasant applause, along with her band, including her husband of two years, Cody Carnes. When she would speak, the crowd was in absolute silence, with the exception of some softly spoken agreements and other words of praise.
This was not a typical concert.
Worship leader Kari Jobe will make a stop at Mclean Bible Church in Virginia this Friday, March 31. Kari recently released her fourth full-length album, titled The Garden, on Capitol CMG — and she is currently on the accompanying The Garden Tour, playing her new songs as well as others. Friday’s show is sold out.
The Seratones, led by singer AJ Haynes, rocked DC9 nightclub Thursday, taking me back to what it may have been like if I were going to concerts in the ‘60s or ‘70s!
If I had to describe the sound of The Seratones, I would say it’s a mix of punk, blues, and rock. I can’t really think of a band to compare them to, but they have a classic rock sound. I might even go as far as to say that AJ’s vocals are comparable to Janis Joplin. The Seratones are made up of AJ (vocals), Jesse Gabriel (drums), Connor Davis (guitar) and Adam Davis (bass). They are currently on tour promoting their debut album “Get Gone,” released on Fat Possum records this past May.
