Why? (the band, I mean). Also Get Down Stay Down, Sonic Youth( and Free Kitten, Thurston solo etc.), Victoire, Babe the Blue Ox, Blonde Redhead, Catherine Wheel, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Amadou and Mariam et al.
DC's a pretty good place to hear music. Pretty easy to get close to things, and most acts come by on the way to NYC. I especially like DC9.
Hi, This is a great idea. Don't know that I've ever felt funny being more than 20-something at the 9:30, but even so... Maybe I should be. I saw The Books in LA a few years ago and think they're great. It'll be good to see them again.
