As Halloween costumed crazies begin to fill the clubs, there are plenty of bands to pay attention to as well. Here is but a sample of what is to come.
Mercury Rev revs it up at the Rock'n'Roll Hotel this Friday, October 16th.
Rain is not in the forecast, but we get Wet at the 9:30 Club on Saturday, October 17th.
You should be in some club on Monday, October 19th. Just a couple to consider... Tekekinesis at the Black Cat? Braids at DC9? Check my recommendations section for even more.
Thursday the 22nd has Here We Go Magic at the Rock'n'Roll Hotel among others.
The last time I saw Christian Lopez, he was playing in front of a dozen amazed listeners at the Tree House Lounge. He's back in front of many, many more listeners soon to be amazed at the Hamilton on Friday October 23rd.
Kinsey is my second favorite band beginning with Kins (Kinski winning that honor) and you can see them at the 9:30 Club on Sunday, October 25th.
Froth bubbles over at the DC9 on Monday the 26th.
Everything is Terrible is at the Black Cat on Wednesday, October 28th. Find out if this band includes themselves in this bold declaration.
Join the Elephant Revival (before they join you) at the State Theatre on Thursday the 29th.
David Bromberg is a really big name so he is bringing his big band to the big stage at the Birchmere on Friday October 30th. If you have not done big band before, do yourself a favor and savor the experience.
Keep Shelly in Athens will brave the night of ghouls on Halloween night at the U Street Music Hall.
