Things to Do

Listen Up!

Listen Up! brings you mp3s of acts coming through town in the next week. Listen up, then go check them out live. Listen to the songs in a nifty flash player, or check out the regular old mp3s below.

Saturday, May 26: Georgie James plays St. Stephen’s Church (1525 Newton Street, NW). Local band does good with jangly, 70s-inspired tunes and a poppy live show. LISTEN: Georgie James – Need Your Needs

Monday, May 28: The Faint plays the 9:30 Club. Dancey punk, heavy on the synth. LISTEN: The Faint – I Disappear

Friday, June 1: Nethers at the Black Cat. Rock and twangy country come together, packing one hell of an evocative punch in this band. LISTEN: Nethers – O the Deed

Friday, June 1: The Broken West at the Black Cat. Deliciously sweet harmonies and pop hooks that will catch you. LISTEN: The Broken West – My Love is True
