Hopping onto the stage at The Fillmore Silver Spring, Kim Petras recently proved herself every bit the stylish pop icon we need.
Evan Dando, the creative force and songwriter behind The Lemonheads, has written some brilliant songs. In fact, they are some of the most hook-laden creations ever put to vinyl from the late ’80’s to mid-90’s. And in 2003 his solo album, Baby I’m Bored, has one of my favorite songs, “Hard Drive,” that’s even more moving when you see him perform the song alone with only a guitar being the only accompaniment. He would do exactly that at a recent show at 9:30 Club.
The Smithereens will perform at The Birchmere on Friday, June 21! You can win a meet and greet, along with tickets to see the band, with Parklife DC.
German pop singer Kim Petras released Turn Off the Light, Vol. 1, her third EP in October 2018 via her own label, BunHead. She’s gearing up to release Turn Off the Light, Vol. 2 this October, but meanwhile she will launch her US Broken Tour in Nashville on June 11. The tour arrives at The Fillmore Silver Spring on Saturday, June 15!
The Lemonheads recently released Varshons 2, an album of covers, via Fire Records. Evan Dando and company perform at 9:30 Club on Thursday, June 13, and you can win tickets to go with Parklife DC.
You know you’ve made it when you’ve got your own ice cream. But DC darling garage punk band Ex Hex’s signature ice cream “Another DiMINTsion” (of the mint-chocolate-chip variety, aptly named for their song “Another Dimension” and sampled for journalistic purposes, of course) wasn’t the only thing bringing chill, hometown flavor to the 9:30 Club this Friday.
