KUROMA with Tennis – Tuesday, May 12 @ U Street Music Hall

They’ve opened for Ex-Hex, Tennis, and Tame Impala. If you like Ex-Hex, Tennis, and Tame Impala and jangly stuff that’s sunny and party friendly and a whole lot of whatever, you’ll enjoy Kuroma, even though they have a horrible name.

THE BLANK TAPES with Mystic Braves – Tuesday, May 12 @ The Black Cat

Garage rock/psychedelic 70s pop band The Blank Tapes are out of Oakland, CA and touring their January 2015 release “Geodesic Dome Piece” with Mystic Braves. An unofficial source (me making assumptions) tells me that they are excited to be playing in a city where weed is legal. They have a song called “Way Too Stoned.” The set should be far out, man.

RIOUX with East India Youth – Thursday, May 14 @ DC9

If you’re into “translucent vocals,” you’re going to want to make sure to be at DC9 promptly at 9pm for opener Erin Rioux, stage name “Rioux,” and his transcendent psychedelic beats. I’m not sure what translucent vocals are, but it’s music to dance to on a Thursday.

DEN-MATE with Beach Fossils – Thursday, May 14 @ Rock & Roll Hotel

Washington D.C.’s own Den-Mate revolves around artist Julia Hale. Her singer-songwriter style is made fresh with interesting production and a surprisingly full, well-rounded sound.
