Friday, March 8th-Kepone (Reunion Show) at Black Cat

The Richmond, Virginia natives are giving a one of a kind reunion show at Black Cat. The indie rockers have been around since the early 90s, and their reunion show will be one you won’t want to miss.

Friday, March 8th-Chelsea Light Moving with Normal Talk at The EARL

Chelsea Light Moving is Thurston Moore’s newest band. They recently released their first self titled debut, which is a bit more pop-py than his acoustic solo album he released after the Sonic Youth hiatus announcement. Check out what you think of his newest musical endeavor.

Friday, March 8th-Man Without Country at DC9

Hailing all the way from South Wales, Man Without Country, is a long way from home. They use the newest equipment to create electronic music like none other. Staying ahead of the times, Man Without Country is on top of the electronic music scene.

Friday, March 8th-Shark Week with Dance for the Dying at Rock & Roll Hotel

Black Cat is welcoming back all of its Story League winners for a night of champions battling it out. There are also whispers of birthday surprises!

Friday, March 8th-Field Report with Hunter Callahan at Eddie’s Attic

With close relations with Bon Iver, Field Report is a show you won’t want to miss! Rolling Stone has even said the band is poised for a huge break through soon. Field Report is going to be the next big thing, so don’t miss them while they are on their rise.

Saturday, March 9th-Mixtape at Black Cat

Saturday, March 9th-Today is the Day with Black Tusk at Rock & Roll Hotel

Blending metal, noise, and rock Today is the Day has toured the world with other huge names in the industry.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see them!

Saturday, March 9th-Alexz Johnson at Vinyl

If you recognize Alexz Johnson, it’s probably because you’ve seen her on TV as well. The young Canadian singer songwriter is not only self managed but self funded. She refuses to sacrifice the clarity and level of her music to management, and has been churning out honest songs since she began playing. Not only that, she keeps her music focused on her fans.

Sunday, March 10th-Night Beds with Indians at Black Cat

Night Beds has been wandering around the country, sleeping in cars, drinking, and finding inspiration for their music. The songs have come together over acoustic guitars and soft melodies that are saturated with the experiences the band has gone through.
