What’s a band to do when their friends Ought are in town from Montreal? Why perform with them of course. But if you are DC’s own Priests, you may not want to steal any thunder, so you might perform under a pseudonym.
So Priests performed incognito as “Religious Figures,” opening Ought at Black Cat on Wednesday. (See our Parklife DC review of Ought!)

New York surf rockers High Waisted visited DC9 on Saturday, surprising concert-goers like me with a new line-up! Apparently, the new band made its first public performances only recently, and Jessica Louise Dye (vocals/guitar), Jono Bernstein (drums), Andrea Scanniello (bass), and Megan Talay (guitar) dropped by DC to rock in one of the reconfigured band’s first performances!

NYC surf rockers High Waisted return to DC9 for a show of stupefying awesomeness on Saturday, March 3.

From the opening moments of “Appropriate” by Priests at 9:30 Club on Friday, the very full house could tell this was a different sort of Priests show.

DC quartet Priests have been winning the world in recent years. And so now it’s only fitting the DC punk darlings will play their first headlining show at mecca 9:30 Club on Friday, Dec. 1 after a world tour celebrating their first full-length album, Nothing Feels Natural, via their own Sister Polygon Records. You can win tickets to see Priests with Parklife DC.
