Who is Vosh?
Rockville-based rock quartet Chute play DC9 on Thursday, Jan. 16, in a show to celebrate the release of the band’s new EP, Perfect Designs.
Clutch kicked off ClutchMas, the band’s annual run of shows between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, with a blistering set at 9:30 Club. The show in DC on Sunday preceded shows at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey, on Dec. 30 and a New Year’s Eve show at Union Transfer in Philadelphia on Dec. 31.
Multitalented Steven Archer wrapped up his recent Stoneburner tour with a hometown show at the Pie Shop. The crowd was full of long time fans and old friends dancing for the latest incarnation of Archer’s solo project — even his mom was in attendance supporting him.
Barrington DeVaughn Hendricks, better known as JPEGMAFIA, ended the US leg of his JPEGMAFIA Type Tour where his music career kicked off in 2015. He had two sold-out shows recently at Ottobar, which was the perfect venue for him to end his tour.
Baltimore’s own Cris Jacobs kicked off his set at The Hamilton Live recently with “Rooster Coop,” and there was indeed “something funky in the barnyard.” “Rooster Coop” perfectly captures the Cris Jacobs Band experience: it’s vaguely Americana, but with deep, funky R&B grooves. Cris is not the only artist to delve into “Americana soul,” as he calls it — Chris Stapleton’s style could be similarly characterized — but Cris also brings a jam band sensibility to the affair.
