Once upon a time, I had a radio show that only played bands currently performing in the District. That show is super dead, so we’ve resurrected it (with way more words and far less radio) in the form of this column. Every day I’ll review a song from a band playing in D.C. that night. The rules are, 1. I can only listen to the song once and 2. I only have until the end of the song to finish my review.


This music video is very cool. So far so good. I have no idea what everyone is singing right now, but the singing in unison sounds very cult-y. Not in a bad way. Okay. I think I like this. You should go see this band tonight. I think they might be even cooler than staying at home and watching TV (and I think staying home and watching TV is the epitome of cool).

You can see Cold Beat tonight at Comet Ping Pong.
