Legendary punk-poets The Flesh Eaters came to town to play Union Stage recently for what may be their only-ever DC show. But they brought along as openers rock trio Porcupine, who we hope to see a lot more often in the future. Jason Nicholson took some pictures of Porcupine.

Tancred has been on tour for the past four weeks with The Joy Formidable, and they stopped by the Black Cat on Saturday, surprising those who came early with a performance that could have stood alone as the main act!

Minnesotan Charlie Parr made a stop in balmy DC for a show at the Black Cat on Friday. I saw Charlie in Black Cat’s smaller, more intimate room about this time last year, so when I saw he was coming back, I knew I had to mark it on my calendar.

The myth of “Minnesota nice” got a little verification on Thursday night at The Birchmere. Before alt-country legends the Jayhawks started playing, keyboardist Karen Grotberg turned to our table, which was next to the stage, and apologize that she would be turning her back to us at times. She also said she hoped we wouldn’t get blown out by the monitors and, fortunately, we didn’t.
