SOFT LIT with Shamir – Tuesday, June 16 @ U Street Music Hall

Soft Lit balances smooth vocals on top of funky beats. Their music will form a good transition between that of the more-mellow Forever Lesbians and Shamir’s bumping party tunes on Tuesday evening.

ROZWELL KID with Superheaven – Thursday, June 18 @ DC9

Rozwell Kid draws from a melting-pot melange of grunge and pop-punk influences. Pay attention to the searing melodies hammered out by the lead guitar, which at times sound reminiscent of Dinosaur Jr.

INCREDIBLE CHANGE with Miracles of Modern Science – Thursday, June 18 @ Comet Ping Pong

With a smokey voice that calls early David Bowie to mind, Incredible Change bumps fun synth-pop that is sure to get Comet Ping Pong moving. Catch them Thursday night as the first of three bands playing, so get to Comet Ping Pong with plenty of time to spare.
