Fall Out Boy blew out our club, and did the same on a much larger scale at the GMU Patriot Center. With an extremely sweet and heartfelt song dedication from Pete Wentz to 9:30’s Josh Burdette, it was quite an amazing evening.

VOTD: KT Tunstall - ‘Invisible Empire’

Xena?! Is that you??! Nope, its KT Tunstall. She has come a long way from her Black Horse and Cherry Tree days. In the video for her new single, Tunstall, dressed as a warrior, battles enemies, gallops on a stallion through water, and travels through a forest with her sword drawn high. In a recent interview, Tunstall explained that the song is “about creating a reality that is only based on what you want to see” (her Invisible Empire), and watching it slip away as you continue to fight reality. The intense scenes drawn out in slow motion prove to be a fantastic juxtaposition to the delicate melody of the song itself. Elegance AND action?! Horses AND swords?! Yeah, check it.

Performing live at Lincoln Theatre on September 28th.

DAILY GRAM: We’re here. Are you ready? 

DAILY GRAM: We’re here. Are you ready? 

John Legend (@ D.A.R. Constitution Hall) 'Made For Love' couldn't be a more appropriate title for this tour, because let's be real, who the hell doesn't love John Legend? He's smooth, his tunes are soulful and sweet, and his tickets will disappear quickly for his show in the beautiful D.A.R. Constitution Hall.
Emeli Sande (@ Meyerhoff Symphony Hall) pipes, style, tunes that you, your friends, and let’s face it any of your family members can get down to. Grab ‘em all and secure your tickets early to see her soar live at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.
Empire Of The Sun we were promised so many first borns if we added another show, and here it is! (We’ll gladly accept coupons with your ticket purchases, thank you.)
Tommy Keene hailing from our own fine city, Mr. Keene has had his hand in just about every area of the music industry. An acclaimed EP from Rolling Stone, playing with just about every influential musician of our time, and even working in A&R. Thankfully, Tommy finds himself yet again on the musician side of the industry, and we get to see him live on our stage!
Comedy Bang Bang! IFC’s latest addiction for many, hosting some of the brightest and sharpest in comedy, is taking their show on the road! HELL YES. We pee our pants literally every time we watch a clip on YouTube and can’t wait to see what the whole CBB gang will bring…we’ll certainly be packing an extra pair of pants…
Fitz And The Tantrums & Capital Cities HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO US ALL! First show has a handful of tickets left, and was already going to be a blast. Now throw in Halloween, and our signature evening of costume contest ridiculousness, what the hell more could you possibly want?
Built To Spill we’re just going to go ahead and put Keep It Like A Secret  (SERIOUSLY, ”Carry The Zero”) on repeat into infinity until this onsale. Get on our level and get your tickets.
Holy Ghost! we just disintegrated our asses getting down to them at Merriweather with New Order, and we’re more than ready for round two. The live band is bigger, the sound more refined, so if you think you have seen them live already? Guess again. Get to this show.
James Blake let’s be honest. We noticed that you all shared his NPR live broadcast for about 4 months after. Our Twitter feed exploded with people who were either sobbing from the beauty of his set live, or sobbing from missing it. Here’s your second chance (or round two) so get up on that ish.
The Head and The Heart there’s nothing more adorable than this band live. ‘Rivers and Roads’ regularly brings people to their damn knees and with good reason. They are talented. Their songs stunning. Their voices leave a physical impact on your heart AND we have new tunes to look forward to.
Ani DiFranco the annual show that will make you feel like the most powerful damn human on the whole damn planet. It still makes us happy to see new faces (hey, we love the yearly show goer too) and watch everyone leave wanting to thrust their fist in the air and go forth into greatness. WHO IS WITH US?!
London Grammar (@ U Hall) comrades of Disclosure, these brits are also prepared for the brink of some massive success. Their art rock is precise, deep mysterious vocals, and simplistic haunting electronic melodies. Listen to the siren’s croon of ‘Hey Now’ and be the cool person that brings your friends to this show before everyone and their mother is clamoring for a ticket.
of Montreal (@ U Hall) YES WE SAID U HALL! Another gloriously intimate show from a band that always sells out our club. Just think about all the costumes, the theatre, the drama, THE PARTY in the underground of U Street. It’s just too magical. Bless the sweet cork floors for saving our knees as we get down TWO NIGHTS IN A ROW with the delightfully strange Kevin Barnes and crew.
