Not sure about you, but I am still recovering from the long weekend with family, friends, and way too much food. Hopefully all of you are getting back into the swing of things, and of course enjoying all the beginnings of Christmas music on the radio. (I know I am!) We’ve got some great shows lined up near you this weekend. Here are our weekend picks.
Friday, November 30th-Tanlines at Black Cat
Duo Jesse Cohen and Eric Emm are bringing their mixture of indie rock and electronic synth music to Black Cat this weekend. Cohen said to Pitchfork he was always interested in making music “danceable”, essentially meaning you should be ready to dance all night long with Tanlines!
Friday, November 30th-Liberation Dance Party presents Sky Ferreira at DC9
The 20-year-old blonde beauty who has made her name as a model, actress, and singer is now touring on her debut album, which will be released in full next year. As if that’s not reason enough to go see Ferreira this weekend, she grew up with family friend Michael Jackson. The Michael Jackson. What more reason could you need?
Friday, November 30th-Other Lives with Indians at Rock & Roll Hotel
Haven’t had your fill of bearded, folky goodness yet? Other Lives can help with that. The indie-folk band out of Oklahoma has toured with Radiohead and Bon Iver and is now touring for their full length album Tamer Animals. Joining them is Indians at Rock & Roll Hotel.

Saturday, December 1st-White Rabbits at Black Cat
Most indie-rock bands stay small. Most can’t boast great album after great album. Then there is White Rabbits, the indie band out of Missouri, who have played at Coachella, performed on the Late Show with David Letterman, and toured with the Shins. Now they are touring on their third studio album, Milk Famous. Come see them for yourself this weekend!
Saturday, December 1st-Cannibal Corpse with Misery Index at Rock & Roll Hotel

Saturday, December 1st-Sean Rivers Band at Peachtree Tavern

Sunday, December 2nd-Diarrhea Planet at Black Cat
Yes, you did read that title correctly. This is a band of best friends. The rock band from Nashville is proof that the country music capital doesn’t produce just country artists, and the lo-fi recording and reverb vocals are anything but controllable.
