“First Date” by Sharkmuffin
The do-it-yourself scene for house concerts in DC has been exploding lately, bringing some good talent to town that we otherwise might not see so soon.
Case in point: Sharkmuffin, a female punk duo from Brooklyn, are coming by tonight to perform at Above the Bayou (2521 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, DC), the living space that is indeed above the Bayou (2519 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, DC), the New Orleans restaurant and bar at the border of Georgetown and Foggy Bottom.
Vocalist and guitarist Tarra Theissen and vocalist and bassist Natalie Kirch will bring their rapid-fire punk rock songs and surf guitars to DC tonight in the run-up to the release of their debut album, Chartreuse, due on August 7 via State Capital/Little Dickman Records. So far, they have released two Eps and a self-titled 7”. Check out the video above for the first single “First Date” from Chartreuse.
