Top 6 Shows You Should See This Week in D.C.
While planning your concert calendar for the week, make sure to not miss these six shows.
Wednesday, Jan. 24—Tennis and Overcoats at 9:30 Club. Doors 7 p.m./Tickets $20
Supporting their newest EP released last Nov., We Can Die Happy, indie pop duo Tennis is coming back to the District this Wednesday to headline 9:30 Club. Make sure to also get there early enough to see Brooklyn electro-pop duo Overcoats, you won’t regret it.
The excitement for this show falls less on Lana Del Rey and more on the opener, Virginia’s own Kali Uchis. Following her sold out show at U Street Music Hall last year, this particular gig marks her first-ever arena performance as she supports Rey on her North American tour.
This is a heavy lineup that, regardless of genre, offers a visceral live music experience. Opening the show is D.C.’s Drop Electric, who’s built a sizable fanbase in D.C. with its ineffable post-rock sound. It’s an interesting complement to Dan Deacon’s highly interactive set that feels like a dance party on an acid trip, a complete 360 degree switch that’ll (literally) keep you on your toes the entire night.
Justin Trawick and his band, the Common Good, are gearing up to release its debut record, The Riverwash. The EP features five original songs written by Trawick that shows off his witty storytelling and versatile musicianship frequently seen on the live stage. His record release party at Pearl Street will also double as his birthday party.
Come celebrate our birthday with us at The Wharf’s newest music spot this Saturday! We’re very stoked to present four acts from D.C. who have all made waves both inside and outside the District. Still riding high from their headlining sets at Firefly, South by Southwest and Billboard’s Hot 100 Festival is electro-pop trio SHAED, who will deliver a rare hometown set just for us on Saturday night. Turning Union Stage into a full-fledged dance party are D.C. music shamans Nag Champa, who fuse house, go-go, free jazz and hip hop into their freewheeling live show. Also performing is avant garde pop quintet Fielder (formerly known as Dawkins) and multi-instrumentalist and one-woman wonder OG Lullabies, who’ll celebrate her EP release at the party! We’ll have cake for everyone that shows up early, and best of all, a portion of the proceeds will benefit our friends Casa Ruby, a local non-profit organization that supports D.C.’s LGBTQ community.
Sunday, Jan. 28—Brockhampton at The Fillmore. Show 8 p.m./SOLD OUT
For the lucky ones that were able to get tickets in time, America’s self-described ‘boy band’ Brockhampton is coming to The Fillmore on Sunday night. The boys are currently on tour supporting their latest effort, Saturation III, which was mistakenly promoted as their final album.
