Presenting Time Is Fire at the Millennium Stage

Hometown Sounds brings punk mysticism to the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage with our September #DCmusic showcase featuring Time Is Fire!

Time is Fire is a band rooted in Washington DC’s punk scene but reaching out to embrace rhythms from across the world. The five-member group summons a kaleidoscopic sound that knows no borders – a sonic blast of radio distortion from a country that doesn’t exist. Fronted by an Iranian-born Sufi poet and backed by players steeped in punk, dance and experimental music, Time is Fire mixes pan-cultural rhythms, floor-shaking funk grooves and acid-laced guitar leads into a mind-expanding geopolitical dance party.

RSVP here and come to the free performance at 6 PM on Monday September 24th!

Time Is Fire – Fetneh

If you’re the type to lose yourself dancing in a psychedelic haze, Time Is Fire have your ticket for a perfect Tuesday evening. The quartet of DC music veterans, hailing from Alma Tropicalia, Thievery Corporation and Multiflora Productions, release their 4 song self-titled debut EP with a show tonight at Bossa in Adams Morgan, one of the primary locations to see live music curated by TIF drummer Jim Thomson. Their first music video also dropped today, showing the band jamming on “Fetneh” while Sufi poet and Iranian daf player Kamyar Arsani sings and dances with a distinctive enormous fez. Grab the EP for free on Electric Cowbell’s SoundCloud page and make your way to Bossa tonight for the show!
