Here are some previews of bands coming to a club near you. Check them out and find a show or two of your own and tell me about it. There is always a lot going in on this town.
Mantles plays the Comet Ping Pong on Friday, July 5th.
Caustic Casanova and Murder Troy are joined by a couple other bands in what will be a great showcase for local metal bands that feature style and intellect amidst the sonic roar.
Cayucas plays the DC9 on Sunday, July 7th.
Pretty & Nice are at the Iota on Sunday, July 7th.
Mood Rings hits the DC9 on Tuesday, July 9th.
Check out Firehorse at the Iota on Thursday, July 11t.
or stay in the U Street area (like me) and try out Hi Life Wedding at the Velvet Lounge on Thursday, July 11th.
But if you are feeling adventurous, go out to Wolf Trap and check out She & Him also on Thursday, July 11th
And go old-school modern with OMD (who I remember as Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark) who come to the 9:30 Club on Saturday, July 13th.
But if you want an old-school band that sounds as brilliant as ever with a couple of recent albums that nearly equal their almighty trinity of Pink Flag, Chairs Missing, and 154, then do not miss Wire at the Black Cat, on Saturday, July 14th.
