Independent artist Larry June dropped by Union Stage for the third stop of his ongoing tour. Josh Williams dropped in to shoot the show!
The stage at The Hamilton was recently host to one of the funkiest bands to come out of the San Francisco Bay area — Con Brio. While Con Brio can easily be compared to other legendary groups from the same area such as Sly and the Family Stone or Tower of Power, another group that comes to mind is Metallica. Though there isn’t too much in common on the surface, both bands seem to continually deliver on the promise of their respective band names.
An entire generation of Led Zeppelin fans have grown up deprived of the opportunity to see the supergroup perform its legendary material live. A temporary reprieve from that disappointment was enjoyed by a sold-out crowd at DC’s City Winery one evening recently when Zepparella, an all-female tribute band, took the stage for a two-hour set of Led Zeppelin’s greatest songs.
Randy Cordeiro calls himself Surreal Neil, and he fronts a band called Super Diamond. If you cannot guess, that band is the nation’s top Neil Diamond cover band, and it is performing at 9:30 Club on Thursday, Jan. 24.

Hot Tuna and Hot Plates at City Winery DC
Upon my arrival in San Francisco in August 1975, I heard of a free concert by Hot Tuna in Parkside Square. So with my friends, I traveled to see my favorite Jefferson Airplane musicians — guitarist/vocalist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady.
During that first time I saw them, the gents shared a sort of mystic chemistry, which remained in tact at their recent show at City Winery.
