On The Hill:

For a more casual music foray outside the normal Set List offerings, head down to Mr. Henry’s, 601 Pennsylvania Avenue SE, for a Capitol Hill experience featuring live music and American pub cuisine. On Wednesday nights, the restaurant features The Capitol Hill Jazz Jam. On Thursdays, there is Bluegrass & Americana. Round out your week by stopping in for their Friday Jazz Feature or Saturday Showcase. More information about all of the incredible musicians playing at Mr. Henry’s can be found here.

Superorganism is as eclectic as it comes. This eight-piece band has members hailing from four different countries all over the world. The sound of this London-based group could be described as topsy-turvy, infectious, and kaleidoscopic pop, but that would just scratch the surface. Listeners around the world, entranced by the insane variety of sounds that go into Superorganism’s music, have put the band’s hit “Everybody Wants To Be Famous” at the top of the alternative charts. Don’t miss Superorganism in support of their debut album at the Rock & Roll Hotel on April 3. Get your tickets here.

Around DC:

Knuckle Puck is bringing their pop-punk straight from the Chicago suburbs to the DC Wharf. The band takes influence from their old-school punk roots while throwing in some emo inspiration for good measure. The band’s newest release, Shapeshifter, continues to enthrall fans with heartfelt lyrics, powerful vocals, and hard-hitting instrumentals. Check out a night of pop-punk featuring Knuckle Puck, Boston Manor, and Free Throw on March 23 at Union Stage. Head on over to our interview with Free Throw and purchase tickets here.

If you’re more interested in the local DC punk scene, stop by Black Cat to check out Dead Meadow‘s legendary psychedelic rock. Since their formation in the late 90s, the band has toured around the world. They are back in DC for an intimate show at the venue that started it all. Check out our interview with vocalist James Simon to get to know all about the band and the upcoming show!

Glass Twin is the dreamy, experimental pop group right out of Richmond, Virginia. The band has gained a big local following since their formation and for a good reason. Smooth harmonies and euphoric instrumentals combine to create the band’s unusual and addicting sound. They will be joined by Sam Cooper and the Sleepwalkers as well as Social Station. For those 21 and older, head out for an exciting night and check out Glass Twin at the Velvet Lounge on March 23. Tickets are available at the door for only $10!

Gang of Youths has taken over the Australian music scene and now they’re headed for America in support of their sophomore album, Go Farther in Lightness! This indie-rock five-piece has played sold out shows across the world, been on the cover of Rolling Stone Australia, and been nominated for eight ARIA awards including Best Group, Best Rock Album, and Album of the Year. The band also recently made their US television debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Don’t miss Gang of Youths on March 24 at Union Stage. Buy your tickets now.

Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Erik Hall, also known by his stage name In Tall Buildings, is headed to DC in support of his new album Akinetic. His moody, atmospheric pop also has an interesting folk-style acoustic-cum-electronic beats, so there is really something that everyone will enjoy. Check out In Tall Buildings at DC9 Nightclub on March 28. Get your tickets here for just $10!
