Congrats for making it through another muggy, sweaty week smack in the middle of August. Now let’s celebrate with some choice #DCmusic shows all weekend long. Here are our picks!
DC may be known for angular, difficult post-hardcore music, but there ain’t no shame in loving some well-crafted pop songs. Broke Royals celebrate their new release Saint Luxury at DC9 tonight with fellow pop luminaries Mystery Friends. The music starts at 7:30 so keep that happy hour in check.
Surely you’ve all heard about the DC Music Rocks Festival taking over the 9:30 Club this Saturday night. Do your homework and stream music by Iza Flo, Empresarios, Eli Lev, Sub-Radio and More AM Than FM to fully appreciate the breadth of talent incubating in our town.
Sardonic musical troublemakers Jack On Fire showcases their new EP Waiting for the End of the World (featuring the catchy jingle “White Genocide Rah Rah Rah!”) at the Black Cat‘s redesigned Red Room Sunday night along with “sitcom-core” purveyors The Electric Grandmother. Plus, just look at this damn flyer. You can’t miss this.
