To be sure, the hot shit in DC last night was tUnE-YarDs, but that doesn't mean you have to ignore the OTHER hot shit in town, her openers Buke & Gase. Hailing from Brooklyn and rocking a mean ukelele (yep, I said that) the duo plays a muscular combination of folk and prog rock (??).
I'm not the biggest fan of the recent-ish ukelele craze, but then most people don't completely rock the thing like singer and lead uke Arone Dyer. It's a sound that on paper looks ridiculous, but trust me, it works.
Check out this lead track from their album Riposte in the meantime, but next time Buke and Gass are in your town, go, go, GO!
