Saturday, September 26: Laura Bush did not read to her children and she felt bad because her kids became losers. To make up for it, she invented The National Book Festival. Even though she is gone from DC and one daughter is now on the teevee, the festival continues, but it is now hosted by [...]
Friday, August 7: While it may not be nearly as exciting as the Air Sex Finals that were held in DC this past June, the US Air Guitar Championships at the 9:30 Club tonight should still be an entertaining evening. Watch people awkwardly strum their stomachs for a chance to be crowned Champion and the [...]
Tonight Friday, June 24: To mourn the passing of the King of Pop, you can try to snag tickets to Who’s Bad the “World’s No. 1 Michael Jackson cover band” at the 9:30 Club tonight (a concert that was coincidentally scheduled prior to his death). Unfortunately, no Charlie’s Angles marathon was randomly scheduled for this [...]
Friday, May 1: For those who never tire of sexytime with aging furry-chested musical icons, or at least proximities thereof, Super Diamond is for you. It’s not the “real” Neil Diamond, but are we so sure an original existed in the first place?
Friday, April 3: If you like Justice and Daft Punk, you might be interested in Sebastien Tellier, who also hails from France and is essential to the French dance circuit. He will be bringing his beautiful, piano-laced electro music to the 9:30 Club. 10PM. [MySpace]
Thursday, March 26: Local DMV rappers, producers and vocalists recreate and redefine the songs off Jay Z’s 1996 debut album, Reasonable Doubt, which helped push the hip-hop powerhouse into the big leagues. 8PM at Expo, $15. [Washington Post]
Thursday, March 12: Dance night Shorts is back at Asylum. All you have to do is wear a pair of shorts — short-shorts, jorts, daisy dukes, swim trunks, whatever — and you’re in. DJ Gavin Holland of Nouveau Riche will be spinning 80s muzak and there will be a ball pit. [Asylum]
The 9:30 Club has some amazing acts booked for the next few months, and many of them are already sold out. Here’s a list of upcoming shows with tickets still available.
If the last punk album you bought was by Bad Brains, then maybe it’s time to break out the Docs and get thee to “The Next Big Thing,” a Sunday night showcase of more than 20 local punk and alternative bands at the 9:30 Club.
