Weekend Shots!

This weekend’s big ticket isn’t until its end, but D.C.’s Friday and Saturday music offerings aren’t too shabby.

Buzz band Lower Dens stop by the Rock & Roll Hotel, Friday, 7/20, currently on tour to promote their latest album Nootropics. The psychedelic, ambient folk quartet are bringing along No Joy and Alan Resnic to open. If you fancy dancing, there’s always options in D.C., like DC9’s weekly Liberation Dance Party. Taking the reins this week is Black Light Dinner Party.

Saturday, 7/21, there are two opportunities to support local D.C. artists with album release parties. Brandon Butler, a folk singer with a hint of coutnry and reformed ‘90s emo frontman, is celebrating the release of his third solo album, HENO at the Black Cat. The Beanstalk Library will also be performing an acoustic set. The Red Palace is hosting Deleted Scenes’ album release for Park the Van.

Another Saturday night option: U Street Music Hall. At 7 p.m., the 9:30 club Presents series brings you singer-songwriter Jay Brannan and opener Sophie Madeleine. Hang around afterward and catch Midnight Conspiracy and Sumner take over U Hall at 10 p.m.

And Sunday. Ah, Sunday. By now you probably know what glorious event is going to go down in the middle of the Maryland woods. Hot Chip and Sleigh Bells are co-headlining at Merriweather Post Pavilion and we couldn’t be more excited to dance, dance, dance. Especially when you factor in the opening DJ set by geniusman James Murphy.

While all three acts provide a different kind of groove, one word applies across the board: banging. If you missed out on our giveaway, tickets are still available via Ticketfly!
