Drab Majesty, composed of Deb Demure and Mona D, excited folks who last caught them in DC when they opened for Cold Cave at the Rock and Roll Hotel in January. Now, the duo returns to DC in a headlining show at Songbyrd Music House on Friday, Sept. 22.
Former member of Tuesday, bassist of The Falcon, bassist and co-singer of Alkaline Trio, and one talented solo singer-songwriter, Dan Andriano is a complete badass and my personal favorite musician since I was an angsty punky preteen.
Dan Andriano is perhaps best known as the bassist for punk outfit Alkaline Trio, but he’s been impressing most in his solo stuff recently as he records and tours under the name Dan Andriano in the Emergency Room. Dan is on a long tour right now, and he will visit DC to play at Songbyrd Music House on Saturday, April 15.
Last Day Deaf Webzine recently published a five-song EP of B-sides from DC power pop band Dot Dash. You can download the EP for free!
Lol Tolhurst, founding member of The Cure, was chatting with Robert Smith in Hawaii in 2013 when he had an epiphany: He would write a book.
Lol Tolhurst is a founding member of The Cure, and he played keyboards with Robert Smith and company until his departure from the band in 1989. Last fall, Lol published Cured: The Tale of Two Imaginary Boys, a memoir of his life as a musician.
The book brings him to DC next week for special appearances at Songbyrd Music House and Record Cafe (2477 18th St. NW, DC) on Tuesday, Feb. 21, and Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar (1104 H St. NE, DC) on Wednesday, Feb. 22.
It’s little wonder that Philadelphia has declared this week David Bowie Week, as Bowie recorded Young Americans at Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia in 1974.
Enthusiastic teenagers who became known as The Sigma Kids lurked outside the studio and occasionally accompanied Bowie during the making of the album, and some of them who still live in Philadelphia have coordinated a week of events for the period that includes Bowie’s 70th birthday and the first anniversary of his death this week.

Here in DC, we’re not quite as organized but we do have a number of Bowie events occurring over the next week.
