Superorganism is not any unconventional science project from middle school, but a experimental band that makes really good music. The band showed off what they can do at 9:30 Club recently on their last night of their U.S. tour.

Dream rockers Warpaint took a break opening for MGMT to hop to Black Cat recently and play an absorbing set of 12 songs for a very full club.

Jim James has a totemic hold over the indie-rock scene — My Morning Jacket very much a universe unto itself (I bristle at the idea of calling them a jam band). Jim dropped by 9:30 Club for a pair of solo shows recently, and I caught the first of the two.

Psych quartet Warpaint have embarked on a tour to open for MGMT, and they have picked up some headlining shows along the way. And so, Warpaint performs at the Black Cat on Sunday, May 19.

The Dream Syndicate played often at the original 9:30 Club in the ‘80s, a memory that prompted frontman Steve Wynn to call the outfit “the house band” for a time. On Friday, Steve was pleased to find himself back in DC with a 9:30 Club Production with his finely tuned and reformed band.

Jim James of My Morning Jacket takes his solo show to 9:30 Club for two nights on Friday, May 17, and Saturday, May 18 — the first night sold out but tickets remain for the second night. You can also still gain access to both nights with a two-night pass.

The Dandy Warhols are 25? For serious? If you would have asked me back in mid-’90s, I would have said no chance. And how wrong I would have been. The Dandys have carved out a nice career for themselves, being smart about song placements for ads and video games, making friends in right places (they opened for David Bowie!), investing back into a home studio and most importantly, making a steady stream of their wonderful brand of oddball pop.
