This week we published our 200th episode of Chunky Glasses: The Podcast. It was a long road full of...well...mostly beer, but the point is we got here by staying true to our "vision", just doing what it is we do, and believing in the power of weird.
In the spirit of that weirdness, this week's playlist is a look inside what has driven the podcast over the years, either directly - you may recognize some of these songs from our outro - or indirectly. In other words here's a glimpse into my head, a view that our crew knows well, that offers the clearest look at how and why we do what we do. - Kevin
Things to do with yourself/others
It's gonna be a hot one. At least you can feel cool on the inside by hitting up some of these shows.*
- Jackie & the Treehorns and FuzzQueen @ Velvet Lounge
Homegrown Rock and F@#@ing Roll...plus Ben Tufts. A must!
- Mike Cooley (Drive-By Truckers) @ U Street Music Hall
A solo set from one of the South's best songwriters/storytellers.
- Marcus Johnson @ Blues Alley
Sometimes it's not all about the Rock N' Roll. Especially when you've got a DC jazz master playing in a legendary DC Jazz club.
- Mail The Horse @ Songbyrd Music House
One of our favorite bands playing in one of our favorite venues. Nuff said!
- Brushes, Make Up Girl, and Mirror Motives @ Fort Reno
The legendary DC Summer concert series soldiers on. Hang in a park and listen to some great local music.
- Margo Price and Sam Lewis @ The Birchmere
Price's album Midwest Farmer's Daughter is another reminder that old-school country isn't just great, it's necessary. See her now at the intimate Birchmere and lay claim to seeing her when.
- Azealia Banks @ Black Cat
You know the name. You know the music. See her up close and personal at one of the best clubs on the planet.
- White Denim @ Ottobar (Baltimore, MD)
A quick trip up the road, gets you some killer tunes in a killer venue.
- Brett Dennen and Esme Patterson @ 9:30 Club
Soulful singer/songwriters unite! This double bill is a win/win
