Christine and the Queens @ 9:30 Club - 11/4/2018

Yes, she owes a lot of her show and her latest album to the likes of Michael/Janet Jackson, but Letissier’s poised delivery paired with the choreographed and sometimes aggressive dance sequences was refreshing, unique, and damn fun to witness.

The Revolution @ Fillmore Silver Spring - 10/26/2018

Most stars aren’t born, they’re carefully crafted fiction. They matter only as a measure of distraction if the lie that got them there doesn’t result in some kind of long-lasting “good.” And Rock and Roll has seen its share of philistines and false prophets. But that wasn’t Prince. So when he died in 2017, there was a hole blown in the universe in the same place that was still only just filling in from the loss of David Bowie.

Mitski @ Vic Theatre (Chicago) - 10/25/2018

In just a few short years, singer-songwriter Mitski Miyawaki has gone from playing a basement in Maryland in 2014 at the home of former D.C.-area favorites Two Inch Astronaut (RIP) to successive packed shows the next two years at DC9, Rock and Roll Hotel, and the festival circuit. For her latest world tour, she’s sold out 30+ dates well in advance. No matter where she plays, it feels like the throngs grow exponentially each time and her set at the beautiful Vic Theatre in Chicago was no different.

Nothing is more reassuring than a group who hasn't toured in six years performing as if nothing has changed. While mentioning that their hour-long set was almost over, Molly Sarle proclaimed "We used to play for 30 minutes, and 15 minutes of it used to be about our periods."

See? Just as humorous as ever.

Little Dragon @ Rock and Roll Hotel - 10/17/2018

With fan favorites like the Nagano-featured SBTRKT track “Wildfire” thrown in for good measure, their set had all of the ingredients required – fan favorites, deeper cuts, tight-knit camaraderie, and a whole lot of dancing -  for an epic night of music.


Ben Howard @ The Anthem - 10/11/2018

Ben Howard @ The Anthem - 10/11/2018

Omissions of older fan favorites like “Keep Your Head Up” and “I Forget Where We Were” surely disappointed longtime fans, but those that were here for the new Ben Howard were in for one of the most sublime performances to grace The Anthem.

All Things Go Fall Classic 2018 @ Union Market - 10/6/2018 - 10/7/2018

For its fifth iteration of the Fall Classic, All Things Go invited Maggie Rogers and LPX to craft a lineup that featured all female/non-binary artists on Saturday and a practically 50/50 split on Sunday, anchored by the likes of Rogers herself and Carly Rae Jepsen. Read on for our favorites and pics from both days of the fest.
