Passion Pit (@ GMU Patriot Center) 3 sold out 9:30 Club shows, a set at Sweetlife, and we get them back again! Oh happy day! For all of you who have been hearing your friends use words like “BEST SHOW EVER!” “FAVORITE OF THIS YEAR” “OH MY GOD EVEN BETTER LIVE” and kicking yourself for missing out, don’t be that guy/girl this time around. Get your tickets this Friday and start working on that killer costume (it is Halloween, after all)!
Neko Case (@ Lincoln Theatre) you knew that first show was a goner. The gorgeous voice of Neko Case, her incredible new music, all live in the intimate and beautiful Lincoln Theatre setting? Lucky for you, we have added a SECOND NIGHT (Halloween in fact) and tickets are on sale NOW. HOP TO IT!
Hank 3 wild man Hank 3 brings equal parts country charm, punk attitude, and metal rowdiness and guitar chops when he takes over our club. If you have yet to experience his live show, you best add it to your list.
Spiritualized prepare for a landing, J. Spaceman shall return from outer worlds to blow your mind at our club. After his stunning set here last year, a critically acclaimed return in Sweet Heart Sweet Light, we are more than ready to have him back for round two. We know you are too.
Walk The Moon clearly, you can’t get enough, and good for you, we had another date to give the lovely dudes of WTM! So don’t be foolish and snag these babies early and get ready for all of the positive vibes to blast through our club this September!
Marky Ramone’s BLITZKRIEG with Andrew W.K. on Vocals Blitzkrieg is freaking right! Seeing the legendary Marky Ramone is a right of passage in itself, throw in the pizza-guitar-weilding party power of Andrew W.K. and you have a night to remember. Ready those head banging necks, prepare your fists to be firmly pointed at the sky, and get your tickets early for an truly epic evening.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah you don’t have to lie to us. You did exactly what this band name says when you saw this announcement (we totally did too). The indie rock veterans return to school us all on thoughtfully crafted pop when they take our stage.
Ra Ra Riot their last sold out show was a crazy dance party! The infectious choruses begged to be sung out loud (and you were more than obliged to belt out your favorite tunes). They held court with The Postal Service at Merriweather and now return to our loving arms to headline! Embrace them & their remarkably fun tracks live this Fall!
They Might Be Giants seriously, what haven’t TMBG done? Grammy’s, kid’s songs, platinum and gold albums, they have their hands in everything. Currently their new album, Nanobots (“25 unreasonable songs in 45 minutes”) available in just about every medium possible, including an iPhone App that streams a new song everyday. As fun as they are innovative, we can’t wait to see what this live set has in store. Also, shout out to Moon Hooch who freaking rule and will open the show!
Bonobo his sold out Black Cat show was super buzzed about in the District, and now his complex and layered bass heavy samples will stretch out to fill our club this Fall! We’ll meet you on the dance floor.
Simple Minds yes, we said Simple (FREAKING) Minds are coming to 9:30 Club. Do we really need to say more here? Anything aside from you better set 4 alarms and make sure you are on your computer promptly at 10AM on Thursday morning to get these extremely hot tickets to see them live this October? Yeah we didn’t think so.
Butch Walker (@ U Hall) his Wikipedia page reads like a who’s who of popular music in the past decade. A songwriter and producer for many successful artists, Walker has plenty of stellar and catchy pop tunes of his own to unleash on your brains at U Hall. Trust us, Walker is addictive. One show, you’re going to be hooked for life, but this one is an addiction of the healthy variety.
Black Prairie (@ U Hall) what do The Decemberists’ members do in their free time from touring? Apparently create other AWESOME bands, because there is no rest for musical geniuses, y’all. And this offshoot with delightful bluegrass influence is prepared to sweep you off your feet. Come check it out, and see some of your favorite familiar faces, this September.
Tom Odell (@ U Hall) it definitely freaks us out when we hear an incredible lyrics and melodies from a new artist, and then hit Wikipedia to see they were born in the 90’s. This young Brit has earned critical acclaim overseas, winning a BRITs Critic’s Choice for his debut album. His new release, Long Way Down, is truly wonderful. We have a feeling it won’t be long at all before he headlines 9:30 Club with a big fat SOLD OUT next to his listing.
