Getting older, aging, maturing — whatever you’d like to call it — does have its upsides. Like wine or whisky, guitars and violins, aging produces deep tones and a richness that can’t be duplicated any other way. The same can be said for music, the timelessness and appeal that cuts across space and time.

Hailing from Brooklyn, Yeasayer consists of Chris Keating, Ira Wolf Tuton, and Anand Wilder. The band took the stage at 9:30 Club recently under a simple, long, sequin fabric running from the ceiling to the floor, almost acting like a makeshift disco ball. Everyone set their instruments, and they were ready for the night to begin.

American jam band Phish performed to the utter delight of a stupified sold-out crowd at Merriweather Post Pavilion recently, and I was there taking photos and spacing-out to the music and getting into the groove.

Just a few weeks ago, experimental rock trio Yeasayer released Erotic Reruns, the band’s fifth studio album. Roughly a few weeks from today, Yeasayer performs at 9:30 Club on Friday, July 12, and you can win tickets to go with Parklife DC.

Phish hit the road for the summer on a 26-date tour that culminates with the band’s traditional Labor Day run of shows in Commerce City, Colorodo. Along the way, guitarist Trey Anastasio and company stop at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Saturday, June 22, and there are very few seats remaining!
