Thursdays kind of suck. The weekend is so close you can almost taste it but you know you still have to go into work tomorrow. So you have a few drinks at happy hour, maybe stay out a little later than usual...and then head home slightly buzzed but unsatisfied (unless you are a college student, in which case every day is the weekend).
Well, screw that. This week get your weekend started early (and right) by joining us tonight at DC9 for raucous sets by Hunters and Bleached.
Hailing from Brooklyn, Hunters practice the brand of high energy, lo-fi indie punk that you might expect to hear from your neighbor's garage band...if your neighbor's garage band was really freaking good, had a pair of dynamic lead singers playing off each other, and had gotten Nick Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) to produce its next EP.
Bleached (Jennifer and Jessie Clavin) formed from the ashes of cultishly adored, all-female punk band Mika Miko. Bleached keeps some of the punk but adds sunnier pop hooks and an updated girl group sound (think early Dum Dum Girls with a grungier sound palate). In short, these ladies rock hard enough to make you think its already the weekend (and it may be by the time they exit the stage).
Doors open at 8:00. The first act goes on at 8:30 (first opener, Priests). Tickets are still available. Be there.
Hunters - "Deadbeat"
Bleached - "Next Stop"
