"Wye Oak is an indie folk rock duo from Baltimore, Maryland, composed of Andy Stack and Jenn Wasner. Their sound has been described as "earnest folk-influenced indie rock with touches of noise and dream pop". Wasner sings lead vocals and plays electric or acoustic guitar, while Stack plays both drums and keyboards, playing the drums with his feet and right hand, and the bass line with his left hand."
"Braids, although routinely classified as experimental pop, can be found exploring the depths of ambient melodies and experimental textures. Their nomadic approach to music allows for an nontraditional and free creative vision that is distinctly their own."
This Meetup group is for indie and local music fans to see some great shows, meet some new people, and support independent/small label and local bands in the process.
We go to shows in DC, MD, and NoVA, with a focus on smaller concert venues such as the Black Cat, Rock & Roll Hotel, DC9, Red Palace, Iota Club, U Street Music Hall, etc.
Suggest venues, shows, and bands!
Please suggest new venues, shows, and bands! Any genre! This group is active and you should be able to find someone else interested in seeing the show you want to go to (and not have to drag your friends who are not so interested in that band or music in general).
How our events work
All of our events have an Event Host who will send a message to all RSVPs with a contact phone number and a general plan for a time and specific location to meet up. With some events, the plan may be to just to meet up inside the venue.
New to Meetup or new to the group? Feel free to send a message to our organizers! You can also post questions/comments about specific shows on the event page for that show.
