Weekend Shots!

For those of you who didn’t quite get Song of the Summer Gotye’s “Somebody I Used to Know” and are passing on Sunday’s Merriweather Post Pavilion gig, there’s still plenty going on at D.C.’s venues this last September weekend.

Friday 9/29, Angus Stone (sans Julia) plays the Rock & Roll Hotel for an evening of soothing indie for a sweet, relaxed end to a long work week. Those with energy to spare can dance the night away with U Street Music Hall and DC9’s weekly ragers, Red Fridays and Liberation Dance Party, respectively.

The trippy Crystal Castles begins its two night-stint at the 9:30 Club with a sold out show Saturday (9/30), and tickets are still available for Sunday’s gig. Grimes’ UHall Saturday synth-pop set is sold-out, but come at 10 to for disco-tinged Classixx supported by Will Eastman and Ozker.

Synth seems to be the theme for Saturday night, with D.C.’s Dance for the Dying celebrating the release of their second EP at Red Palace. Ugly Purple Sweater and Fire and the Wheel are set to join the dance-rock group.

Sunday, (9/31) David Byrne & St. Vincent bring their brassy Love this Giant to the Music Center at Strathmore in Bethesda, Md. If there was ever a way to make the music from the collaborative record sound even more flawless, the Strathmore’s perfect acoustics will surely do it.

But if you still can stop belting “BUT YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO CUT ME OFF” then go on and buy your ticket for Gotye with Missy Higgins and Jonti at Merriweather Post Pavilion already.
