This will be one awesome dream-pop night at Black Cat mainstage. School of Seven Bells and Twin Sister will be playing there on Monday Nov. 26th. If you like Cocteau Twins, this is a must-see as both of these bands have heavy influences from them.
School of Seven Bells originally consisted of identical twin sisters (no pun intended) Alejandra and Claudia Deheza, now it's just Alejandra along with Ben Curtis. For those going to see Bear in Heaven, their ex-bassist James Elliot was once part of this band (yes, this is heavy on shoegaze). Their latest album Ghostory was released earlier this year.
Twin Sister is a from Long Island. Their music has been described as Chillwave, Indie pop, Dream Pop, and Disco, and have been compared to Cocteau Twins and Portishead.
Tickets are $15/$17DOS and go on sale Friday Oct. 5th.
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 attend shows in the DC/MD/VA area with a focus on smaller concert venues such as the 9:30 Club, Black Cat, Rock & Roll Hotel, DC9, 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. If you would like to volunteer to host an event, send Dave a message for details.
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.
