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.
FICTIONISTS – LOCK AND KEY
I had to break myself away from a very important Wes Craven conversation to write this, so this song better be good. I’m bored so far, but that might just be because nothing is more interesting than Wes Craven. I mean have you guys seen The People Under the Stairs???? Actually this is kind of okay. It’s growing on me. I like how the versus just kind of plod along. They’re moody. I like moody. The chorus is too happy. Let’s just go back to talking about Wes Craven.
You can see Fictionists tonight at 9:30 Club.
