Phosphorescent is playing The Red Palace in DC tonight and you should be too. The brain child of Brooklyn transplant Matthew Houck Phosphorescent is a rotating cast of musicians that come together to bring you some of the best alt-country style rock going today.
Why is he playing a place this small? We have no idea. Especially after the awesomeness of his second album for the Dead Oceans label, To Willie, which is nothing but Willie Nelson covers done right. Like I said, we don't know why he's playing a place as small as The Red Palace (although maybe it's because it is one of the best rooms in DC) but we'll take it!
If need convincing or just have never heard of the band, check out the opening track of their excellent album Here's To Taking It Easy and let the music do the talking.
At $12 a ticket, how could you possibly go wrong.
