September shows coming a bit slow to me (as is fall weather for all), but things get really good, really soon.
Jenny Hval and Brianna Morella will likely fill up the DC9 this Wednesday, September 9th.
One of my favorite bands in the world today, Woven Hand is touring with Chelsea Wolfe and they play the U Street Music Hall on Friday, September 11th. Be there early or you will have blown it.
Head over to the Howard Theatre later on that Friday the 11th for Lizz Wright.
Saturday September 12th has so many choices in clubland that I can't cover them all. I will likely be at Dengue Fever at the Rock'n'Roll Hotel, but the Heartless Bastards at the 9:30 Club that should be of interest. Or perhaps the white hot Titus Andronicus at the Black Cat?
Small Feet and Nick Diamonds shine on at the DC9 on Sunday, September 13th.
Holly Miranda plays the Rock'n'Roll Hotel on Tuesday the 15th (and just as Pablo Picasso should never be called an asshole, Holly Miranda should never play a veranda).
Or try On and On at the DC9 on that Tuesday as well, if you choose the NW rather than the NE.
