Barenaked Ladies (@ Lincoln Theatre) they brought the party for the Last Summer on Earth at Merriweather, and we were all smiles. Prepare to hear sunny new tracks from Grinning Streak as well as old favorites that first captured your hearts!
Lissie sold out U Hall show, and she’s back for more! The impossibly cool, powerful lyrics, and a show that will leave you completely breathless. Prepare to rock.
Phantogram a band that came onto the scene hard and heavy, their melodic electronic sensibilities matched with cool vocals and an energetic live performance is a winning combination for their first headlining show at the club.
Marco Benevento (@ U Hall) multi-instrumentalist from Brooklyn has graced the U Hall stage before and we couldn’t be happier to be hosting him again. His moving set is sure to tug at the heart strings and tickle the intellect.
Chris Cornell (@ Lincoln Theatre) We don’t have to tell you who he is, right? Okay, fine, (for those late to the party) he’s the absolutely incredible lead vocalist and guitarist of Soundgarden and Audioslave. And he’s hitting the stage solo in the stunning Lincoln Theatre. Yep. It’s special as hell.
Camp Freddy: This isn’t just any cover band—why wouldn’t you want to see Dave Navarro do his best Cheap Trick? Roll call: Billy Morrison, Dave Nevarro, Matt Sorum. Prepare to rock.
Toad the Wet Sprocket Named for a Monty Python skit and set to release a new album this year, you don’t want to miss this troupe as they beautifully walk you down memory lane, and feed you new tunes that are as consistently awesome as the old.
J. Roddy Walston and The Business Semi-local rockers will bring some good old-fashioned whiskey soaked rock when they grace the stage. You’ve seen ‘em burn it down as openers, now prepare for total chaos as they headline their first night at 9:30 Club.
All Good Presents Leftover Salmon Describing themselves as “polyethnic cajun slamgrass,” this jam band is sure to jam its way into your hearts this Fall.
All Good Presents Lotus (x2) We know you just need to dance, so we’re giving not one but TWO NIGHTS of these jammers. Get your mind right, get your friends, and get on these tickets before they are gone..they ALWAYS sell out.
Kate Nash Touring on her March release Girl Talk, this British songbird is equal parts beauty and brain and perfectly poised to unleash her powerfully clever tunes on you.
All Good Presents Conspirator You’re gonna want to pull out your light-up gloves for this one—this group is about to serve up some dank electronic jams à la Disco Biscuits or Lotus.
The White Mandingos (@ U Hall) Featuring Bad Brains bassist Darryl Jenifer and MC Murs, these guys play an infectious hybrid of hardcore punk and hip hop.
Biffy Clyro (@ U Hall) Oft described as the Weezer of Scotland, these guys tour on the delightfully well-received January release, Opposites. Catch them here and be able to say you saw them before they were huge.
Middle Distance Runner (@ U Hall) Brilliantly mellow yet still danceable indie rockers are young veterans of the D.C. music scene. After well received albums and live shows, they have laid low for a while and we are honored to play host to one of their first live sets in D.C. in far too long!
NEEDTOBREATHE (@ U Hall) Another one of those “Wait…Did they say U Hall?” Yes we did. Yes these lovely southern rockers usually sell out our club with ease. The lesson? Get on your tickets for an extra special intimate show and probably a nice preview of releases to come!
Franz Ferdinand (@ Strathmore): These pioneers of contemporary indie rock are coming stateside to rock the Strathmore stage! As we are unable to resist their combination of infectious Britpop beats and heavy guitar riffs, we’re completely beside ourselves. But…seriously, who did people listen to before Franz Ferdinand?
Jack Johnson (@ DAR): Time for a musical staycation! Make yourself some banana pancakes and pretend like you’re catching waves in Oahu with Jack instead of heading back to your 9-to-5 tomorrow morning.
Volcano Choir (@ 9:30): Shhhh…maybe everyone doesn’t already know that Justin Vernon played with this band long before Bon Iver was a thing. Get your tickets before everyone else is in on the secret.
Herbert Grönemeyer (@ 9:30): Perhaps we don’t often associate the German language with being warm and fuzzy, but we’re selling it short. Even if you sprichst kein Deutsch, allow yourself to get lost in the soulful music of Herbert Grönemeyer, who continues to write music in German because he feels that English fails to capture all the intricacies of language and sentiments he wishes to articulate.
Jake Bugg (@ 9:30): Ahhhh. Between the catchy indie folk of Jake Bugg and honeyhoney’s twangy acoustic rock, this show will be as soul-soothing as slipping into a warm bath. Don’t miss it.
Blowoff (@ 9:30): Get with the program, remove your shirt, and get down with Bob Mould and Richard Morel’s dirty brand of dance mix at our monthly party. If you don’t know, now you know.
Pinback (@ 9:30): We can’t resist Pinback’s perfectly clean, tight prog-rock, especially when combined with Deathfix (featuring DC locals Brendan Canty of Fugazi and Richard Morel). There’s a whole lot of genius in this group of guys, so you better get those tickets fast.
