Tell us some of your favorite indie/alt bands.

My favorites? Any kind of a list would require more updating than I feel like doing. For the purpose of meeting up, my preference is to follow the bands doing the tour circuit at The Black Cat, DC Nine, RnR Hotel, 9:30 club (both at the club itself and the IMP productions at U St Music Hall) and pick and choose those that I like. I favor young and new bands and tend to skip reunion tours.

What's your favorite place to hear music in DC?

The Black Cat and DC Nine are my two favorite venues but I also do shows at the RnR Hotel, the 9:30 club, and the IMP shows at U St Music Hall. I tend to avoid the venues that most of my age peers go to, e.g, The Hamilton, The Birchmere, The State Theatre, Jammin Java, etc. partially because of snobbery and partially because I usually find the performers there to be dull.


Been seeking out new and original bands all my life. I am the elder statesman of this scene. I formed a small "Aging Hipsters" group long before there was meetup and have been to literally hundreds of shows at the Black Cat and 9:30 club.
