I trust you arrived early to Joesph’s show at the 9:30 Club on October 2nd, and caught Seattle’s Deep Sea Diver. They are a very good rock band, and are the main reason I trekked over to the Shaw neighborhood on a Wednesday night. I did enjoy the powerful harmonies of Joseph, but I wasn’t as familiar with them.
The Regrettes came through DC and killed their great punk and garage rock set for the super-packed, sold out U Street Music Hall on October 1st. A mightly fine way to kick off October and the Fall season.
If you’re looking for style and flourish and incredible electropop songs, the first place you should have looked was Marina’s superb concert at The Anthem on September 18th. I know many of you didn’t look hard enough, because the show was not a sell out, but it easily should have been.
The Wild Reeds gave the ‘craziest city to perform in’ a night of soothing folk harmonies and a spirited show worthy of DC. For an unassuming Tuesday night, this performance now ranks up there among the best concerts thus far in 2019.
Karen Jonas, with her guitar and winning voice, along with her 4-piece band gave the Pearl Street Warehouse crowd a fun night of ‘learning to like country music’, as she opened for Nashville singer-songwriter Lilly Hiatt. Tim Bray also joins Karen for her sets, emoting and jamming and generally appearing to have a splendid time playing the guitar.
