There is just way too much on my calendar to preview it all, so keep looking in the recommendations sections. Also, as most of you know there are great resources around the internet to keep you apprised of your many options on any night of the week.
You can start your post-Halloween musical push with two scary themes. Why not try Joanna Gruesome at the Black Cat or Moon King opening for Youth Lagoon at the 9:30 Club. Both shows are on Sunday, November 1st.
Craig Finn plays the Rock'n'Roll Hotel on Monday, Nov 2nd.
Strange Names brings their music, which may be strange or not, to the DC9 on Tuesday Nov 3rd.
We Were Promised Jetpacks is a strange, but great name and they have the music to match. See them on Friday the 6th at the Black Cat.
Marrow plays the DC9 on Sunday Nov 8th. Dem bones be not dry.
Hopefully winter will not come as early as Winter, who play the Black Cat on Monday Nov 9th.
Thursday the 12th has lots of great music with Natalie Prass at the Rock'n'Roll Hotel, Dilly Dally at DC9, or Rachel Yamagata at the 9:30 Club. And yes, Natalie Prass is covering Slayer here.
Fuzz plays the Black Cat on Friday the 13th. I wonder if they have a pedal board...
Angie Stone plays the Howard Theatre on Saturday the 14th, although I am debating heading up to Baltimore to see Windhand at Metro Gallery. Two great shows, one a drive, one a walk. Hmmm.
And finally, Wand weaves their musical magic at the DC9 on Sunday, Nov. 15th. See you in the clubs.
