Seeing live music is good for your health and your soul. We’re here twice a week to clue you in to the good stuff being made right here in DC.
Rhizome has firmly established itself as the home of experimental music in DC, but it’s great to see the Takoma Park DIY space branch out into other areas, like poetry readings, making yogurt, and punk music. Tuesday night you should catch Mock Identity and Park Snakes support Minneapolis queer punks Royal Brat.
There aren’t enough quality hip hop shows in DC these days. Wednesday night College Park’s MilkBoy ArtHouse hosts the 10th Anniversary Tour of Fake Four, the DIY label run by Ceschi Ramos. See him spit fire alongside Onry Ozzborn, Moodie Black, ESH and a couple of our DC faves, Ardamus and Prowess The Testament.
This Thursday night one of those nights with a lot of strong DC music options. We have to give the edge to quirky snackcore rockers BRNDA (vets of our Kennedy Center Millennium Stage series) for their tape release show at Dew Drop Inn, with DC’s Puff Pieces and Heatmap from NY/Philly. Plus, all of BRNDA’s tape sales, and a portion of the door donations will go to benefit Homeless Children’s Playtime Project.
