As everyone gets settled into 2017, music venues and tours are in full force once again. Here’s the music you don’t want to miss around D.C. over the next 2 weeks.

On The Hill:

With their soulful and catchy mixture of modern pop, a 70s era vibe and classic R&B, The Shadowboxers have captured the attention of their loyal fan base, as well as Justin Timberlake. Taking influence from Simon & Garfunkel, The Beatles, Prince, and Michael Jackson, the sound of The Shadowboxers is unlike any other. Catch these guys at the Rock & Roll Hotel on January 14 on their short tour around the country. Buy tickets here.

With careers spanning decades under their belts, American singer-songwriters Steve Gunn and Lee Ranaldo have clearly made their impression on the music world. Folk-rocker Steve Gunn’s most recent album, Eyes on the Lines, showcases his ability to create a rich, vivid, and universal compilation about transition and exploring. Performing with Gunn is Lee Ranaldo, guitarist of influential rock band Sonic Youth. These two will bring their music to the Rock & Roll Hotel on January 20. Buy tickets here.

Around DC:

Tom Chaplin has earned his fame with his dreamy, powerful vocals showcased in British alternative rock band, Keane. Chaplin has 5 number-one Keane albums under his belt, but he is taking on a whole new adventure now. The Lincoln Theatre brings you Tom Chaplin as he tours in support of his debut solo album, The Wave, released last fall. He will be performing on January 17. Buy tickets here.

Are you ready for a night filled with female DJs and dance music benefitting a good cause? What more could anyone ask for? U Street Music Hall presents Our DC on January 21 featuring Eau Claire, with her fair share of chart-topping releases and epic performances, and Madame Gandhi, electronic music artist, singer, and activist. This show is for those 18 and older and all door proceeds from this show benefit the ACLU. Buy tickets here.

If you happen to be in the mood for a youthful, fun, energetic show one Sunday night, Black Cat has you covered on January 22. Since their formation in 2005, Tokyo Police Club, a Canadian indie rock band, has performed at countless festivals such as Coachella and Bonnaroo, and toured alongside bands like Weezer and Foster the People, so don’t miss your chance to see them in a much closer setting. Tokyo Police Club will take the stage to showcase their unique sound that will have you up and moving on your feet all night long. Buy your tickets here.

Phox blew up in 2014 with their self-titled debut album that sparked music festival performances and shows around the world. This six-piece’s contagious indie pop garnered more attention than they ever imagined. The band will be doing a short run of shows before going on their indefinite hiatus, which was announced this past October. Their show at the 9:30 Club on the night of January 25 is sure to be amazing, so get your tickets now!
