The synth-pop masters from Minneapolis, Poliça, will grace DC at the end of the month, in front of what will surely be a devoted 9:30 Club crowd.

(Editor’s Note: All I.M.P. concerts (The Anthem, 9:30 Club, U Hall, Lincoln Theatre) have been postponed through March. We will update to this post once (and if) the Poliça concert is rescheduled.
