You bought the ticket, you should enjoy the entire bill. Here are this week’s opening artists that we think you should see.
After playing with the punk band Groovie Ghoulies for over 20 years, Kepi began to take his own music across the country. Kepi Ghoulie will be opening for Mean Jeans and Passing Phases as part of his U.S. tour tonight.
If you like funk, fusion and Arrested Development you will love Mister F. Their upbeat drums, funky bass and mellow vocals combine to create a unique blend of genres.
Indie-rock band The Cowards Choir will be opening the celebration of singer-songwriter Lauren Calve’s debut EP this Friday at the Contemporary Music Center. The Cowards Choir has garnered attention from publications across the DMV area, as well as a mention in Rolling Stone after performing with Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic.
Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers play cheery funk-pop. “The band has been very enthusiastic about making [upcoming shows] as weird as possible,” says Hertler, “There are a lot of emotions, you might as well try to hit them all.”
Elephant Micah’s music is full, yet simplistic. His experimental folk has built a small cult following over the past 10 years, and rightfully so. He’s found the sweet spot that many psychedelic musicians struggle to find: weird, but not trying too hard to be outrageous.
