Silly Rifles -- they didn't post this date on their website. Didn't check MySpace, because I'm blocked here at work, but I would like to see if they are playing in Washington, D.C.

Joel Stoker (vocals), Lucas Crowther (guitar), Rob Pyne (bass), and Grant Marsh (drums) create the jaunty garage rock sound of the Rifles. With their Jam-like swagger and matched playfulness to the Kooks, the Rifles came together in London in 2003. They made their performance debut a year later and praise from NME and BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe quickly championed the Rifles' boyish rock & roll fun. Their debut "When I'm Alone" arrived in May 2005 and did moderately well among their growing fan base, however "Local Boy" gave the Rifles their first U.K. Top 40 hit that fall. Other chart hits such as the Strokes-like "Repeat Offender" and "She's Got Standards" added to the band's heightened popularity in 2006. Produced by Ian Broudie (the Coral, the Subways, I Am Kloot), No Love Lost marked the Rifles' debut full-length in July. Additional U.K. club shows and appearances at the annual V Festival in Chelmsford and Staffordshire followed in August. MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide
