There is nothing quite like seeing the eternally youthful Tim Burgess, frontman of The Charlatans UK, bound about a stage, which he did with exuberance in performance with his band at U Street Music Hall on Oct. 2. Jason Nicholson was there to capture the action!

Mt. Joy played a sold-out U Street Music Hall recently. Touring all over the country since late 2017 and most of 2018, Mt. Joy has had a successful year with their self-titled debut album and opening up for The Shins, The Head and the Heart, and The Lone Bellow (to name a few). I was super excited to hear them live, and they did not disappoint.
The Charlatans UK released Totally Eclipsing, a new EP, on June 8! The four-track album followed their latest full-length, 2017’s Different Days. Vocalist Tim Burgess and company are currently on a North American tour, and they visit U Street Music Hall on Tuesday, Oct. 2.
Bruno M was in town this week! That’s right Bruno Major, the crooner from across the pond, graced the U Street Music Hall stage Tuesday night. Hold on… who did you think I was writing about?
Update June 3: Individual links to purchase tickets for shows through Ticketfly are now active, and Parklife DC will resume running previews for Ticketfly shows. The main Ticketfly website, and many of its hosted sites, remain down, however.
Concert ticket website Ticketfly.com has been experiencing intermittent problems this week, and today it is down entirely, taking out venue websites with it. This includes websites for 9:30 Club, DC9, Pearl Street Warehouse, and many other DC venues.
Bruno Major recently released a new video for his song “Home.” The video takes Bruno back in time through his debut solo North American tour, which saw him sell out 16 dates throughout last winter. He’s coming back for the second leg of that tour with a DC date on Tuesday, June 5, at U Street Music Hall.
