Iota

LIVE MUSIC: Lambchop @ IOTA - 4/15/12

As anyone in DC knows, this city can get a little high strung at times. It can be a stressful, restless place where hanging out at a club, bar, or show doesn’t necessarily mean the work talk is over. Looking for that next network opportunity is always lurking behind that seemingly friendly conversation. It’s both an advantage and limitation of this great city, but sometimes it makes it difficult to just take a breather and relax. That’s why we all just need a button that can cue Lambchop when we find ourselves stuck in these behaviors and situations. 

Focused around the creative nucleus of Nashville via Maryland resident Kurt Wagner, Lambchop is a musical collective that plays what is best described as “country lounge music.” Utilizing a lyrical delivery that is somewhere between a crooner from the 1950’s and a poet reading his latest passages into the microphone, Wagner makes the performance feel more like a conversation with an old friend who has a knack for great storytelling.


Daily Listen: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. - "God Only Knows"

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. are hitting town tonight out at Iota, so it seemed so it only seemed fitting to feature them today.

Hailing from Detroit, the duo, otherwise known as Josh Epstein and Daniel Zott, play a unique take on pop that pulls from electronica, folk and hip hop without ever really sounding any of those building blocks. And, as witnessed by their cover of The Beach Boys song below, they have really REALLY big balls.

So head on out to Iota tonight for what should be a fun evening given to us by two guys with really REALLY big balls.

Wait..that doesn't really sound right, does it?
