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
