English singer-songwriter Steven Wilson released To the Bone, his fifth full-length solo album, in August via Caroline International. Described by Planet Rock as “one of the most prolific and unrivaled artists of our time,” Steven begins a spring tour that begins in Albany, New York, on April 19 and lands at 9:30 Club in DC on Tuesday, April 24.
Back in 2013, my very musically advanced 13-year-old daughter shared a song with me that she had heard on a Spotify-curated playlist. She instantly fell in love with this song, and she could not wait to share it with me. I heard the song and said, “This song is great. Who is this? I need to look them up!” The band was Wolf Alice, a new band out of London, and the song was “Bros.”
Skinny Lister, a British folk ensemble that leans heavily on punk, proved to be a great party band at Rock and Roll Hotel on Tuesday.
UK folk band Skinny Lister released The Devil, The Heart & The Fight, their third studio album, in 2016, but the sextet is in the United States on a tour right now — tonight in Kansas City, Missouri, arriving locally to perform at the Rock and Roll Hotel in DC on Tuesday, March 13.
Wolf Alice released Visions of a Life, the band’s sophomor record, in September via Dirty Hit/RCA Records. The quartet scheduled some North American dates and performed at 9:30 Club in a sold-out show on Friday! Paivi was there to get some pix.
