I had a radio show that only played bands 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.


I am intrigued by a classical band that goes by ETHEL (in all caps of course). It’s weird and imposing and cool. I’m also impressed that they’re playing a Kaki King song with Kaki King. They must be cool and in the know. Just like you and me (hahahahahahahahahahahahaha). This is just as awesome as I thought it would be. I am hypnotized by this music video. I’m having a hard time pulling my eyes away to actually write things. If you’re not going to !!! tonight, then you better head over to the Strathmore. This is going to be leagues better than watching Netflix at home.

You can see ETHEL tonight at the Mansion at Strathmore.
