The Districts @ Rock & Roll Hotel - 3/27/15

Last Friday, The Districts made their way to the District to play for a sold-out crowd at the Rock and Roll Hotel. The young four-piece from Lititz, PA were touring for their latest album, A Flourish and Spell, released in February on Fat Possum Records. On album, many of their songs are a lo-fi, mid-tempo affair that find their place somewhere between the indie rock edge of The Strokes and the brooding Americana of Wilco. On stage, they become more urgent, with vocalist guitarist Rob Grote jumping around the stage energetically, channeling a youthful emo angst which is only hinted at in the recorded versions of the songs.
