Vertical Horizon released a new album, The Lost Mile, last year, but it wasn’t really on the mind of frontman Matt Scannell when the band performed at DC’s City Winery recently. Instead, the concert spanned the career of Matt’s band, founded originally in DC, with a big focus on Everything You Want, its 1999 hit album, Everything You Want, according to Setlist.fm.

J Mascis blurred the line between acoustic and electronic performance in a recent performance at City Winery. J played an acoustic guitar, but he used extensive effects, such as distortion and looping for an exciting evening of guitar rock.

Guitarist J Mascis began making music with Dinosaur Jr. While the trio remains active, J Mascis, born Joseph Donald Mascis, has been going solo more often lately, recently releasing Elastic Days, his third full-length solo album, via Sub Pop Records. He’s taking the opportunity to tour, and he’ll perform at City Winery in DC on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

The deep drumming that opens the title track and first song on the new album, When Legends Rise, immediately fills you with the sense of impending doom, as many Godsmack songs tend to do. This made for the perfect opening song for Godsmack’s performance at Jiffy Lube Live on Sunday. A quick transition into a heavy guitar riff, and 15 seconds into the night, there is no doubt that Godsmack has put forth another powerful, rib-crushing album.
