It’s been nearly six years since a new solo album from DC R&B superstar Ginuwine. He’s been slowly working on an eighth studio album, tentatively known as “Same Ol’ G…the Bachelor,” referring both to the title of his debut album and his recent divorce.
While Ginuwine may not yet have a new album, he’s certainly been busy, and he’s putting up a concert performance at The Howard Theatre on Friday, Jan. 27.

The Arcs come to the 9:30 Club for two shows, December 14 and 15th, touring in support of their first album, Yours, Dreamily,.
The band is composed of Dan Auerbach, as a side-project of the Black Keys, on lead vocals (and many other instruments) with a slew of other members, like Leon Michels, Nick Movshon, Homer Steimweiss, Richard Swift and Kenny Vaughan. The ladies from Flor de Toloache also contribute. No less than four members contribute to drums and percussion, so the R in their brand of R&B is well established.
“Outta My Mind” reminds me of the Black Keys’ energetic garage rock, with Dan’s unmistakable voice a powerful force beyond the song. It also hints at something psychedelic, as do many of the songs on their first album.
“Stay In My Corner” is a slow, fuzzy jam that soulfully pleads for two people to stay together and fight for each other.
Tonight’s show is sold out (Editor’s correction: There are still tickets available for December 14 here), but there are tickets available for the Tuesday, December 15 show. Find them here.
