Quasi, the duo of keyboardist/guitarist/vocalist Sam Coomes and drummer Janet Weiss, has persisted for more than 30 years, making intelligent indie rock. In February 2023, they released their first album in 10 years, Breaking The Balls of History. Despite the break between albums, they haven’t lost anything in terms of chemistry and dynamism, and they delivered another set of great songs. In their recent show at The Atlantis, Quasi rocked hard and loud, to the delight of fans who were thrilled to see them back together live on stage. Coomes and Weiss’s partnership goes back to the early ’90s ..read more

Australian percussionist G Flip hoped to make fans of those unfamiliar with them attending a recent sold-out show at 9:30 Club. Her goal: To have new listeners turn to their friends and say, “Y’know what? G Flip is fucking all right.” Judging from the enthusiastic and even boisterous response to the following dynamic performance at 9:30 Club, I would say G Flip exceeded their goals: The audience roared for more and more from the multi-faceted artist. Now, I called G Flip a percussionist, but Georgia Claire Flipo (aka G Flip) quickly grew beyond her drums and into a skilled multi-instrumentalis ..read more

British singer-songwriter Holly Humberstone recently played a packed sold-out show at the 9:30 Club. The performance marked the second stop on her tour The Holly Humberstone Show. The concert was originally scheduled to play the 450-cap room The Atlantis, but the demand for tickets was so high that it was upgraded to the 9:30 Club. Previously, Humberstone opened for Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour Tour at The Anthem in May 2022, but this is her first headline show in Washington, DC. I first became familiar with Holly Humberstone’s music in 2020 from listening to Sirius XM’s channel, Alt Nation, which fe ..read more

The year may not be over yet, but it’s no secret MisterWives has had a busy one.

(Photo by David LaMason) As a fan of live music, going from seeing a show at least twice weekly to no shows at all for about eight months has been rough, but it’s nothing compared to what venues and artists have gone through in that time. It’s been a year of live-streaming, fundraisers, and trying to find new ways of keeping the making of music and the creation of these unique communal experiences alive through these difficult times. One of those ways that have emerged in recent months is the advent of drive-in c ..read more
