American heavy metal band Lamb of God stopped at Merriweather Post Pavilion recently, and I was there to take some photos. The Richmond natives are currently on tour with Slayer for Slayer’s “final world tour.”
Will Anderson (vocals, guitar), Johnny Stubblefield (drums), and Christopher “Kit” French (saxophone, keyboards) formed Parachute more than a decade ago when they were still in high school. Now the gents from Charlottesville will release a new self-titled album on May 10 via Thirty Tigers. Parachute performs at 9:30 Club on Wednesday, May 1, and you can win tickets to go with Parklife DC.
Update: Parachute has sweetened the deal — our winner also gets their picture taken with the band at 9:30 Club!
The first time I saw Karen Jonas and her musical partner, Tim Bray, perform was at Gypsy Sally’s in 2015. I had the pleasure of seeing the duo with Karen’s band again recently at Pearl Street Warehouse on the night she won the 2019 Wammy Award for Best Country/Americana Artist.
Kicking off an East coast tour, Windhand electrified U Street Music Hall recently. The four-piece comprised of Dorthia Cottrell on vocals, Garrett Morris on guitar, Ryan Wolfe on drums, and Parker Chandler holding down the bass put on a full-blown rock and roll show.
Gwar stormed 9:30 Club recently, touring in support of their latest album, The Blood of Gods. Ben Eisendrath braved the torrent of thrash metal madness to capture some pictures of the mayhem!
