Here’s what I’ve been grooving to this week:
Hometown heroes (from our neck of the woods in Atlanta) The Constellations are set to take over the world this summer. They’ll be taking on a huge tour starting this month, and will be making a stop at Atlanta’s Drunken Unicorn with Hockey on March 23 and at DC9 on May 3.
Drunken Unicorn, March 23
DC9, May 3
Florence and the Machine is an act that has featured in this feature before, with Dizzee Rascal at The BRITS, but it seemed fair that she got her own spot, especially since her videos are so visually stunning, matching her phenomenal sound.
Many of us have been positively giddy at the release of the new Vampire Weekend record. The video for “Giving Up The Gun” cements our giddiness. The band is touring the country (most shows are sold out) and we’re selling tickets for the Official Vampire Weekend Afterparty on Saturday, April 3 at DC9, with the band’s bassist Chris Baio, who DJs simply as “BAIO,” DJing.
