Whitney

May 20, 2017 at 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$20

The Chicago area has a long musical legacy of producing stars in various genres, but in the past few years, it has become especially recognized for new indie bands. (This is the land of the too-cool blogs Pitchfork and Consequence of Sound, after all.) If you’re looking for a new favorite artist that your friends haven’t heard of, you’re in luck—several great Chicagoland groups are coming to DC this month, including Whitney.
Hometown: Chicago.Sounds like: A chilled-out, throw-back cross between Foxygen and Sufjan Stevens.
Best track: “No Woman” (2016), a sincerely melodic love song featuring a Beirut-like brass section.
You should know: Guitarist Max Kakacek and drummer Julien Ehrlich used to play in Smith Westerns (with Twin Peaks guitarist Cadien Lake James’s older brother, Hal).
