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 feels like the wrong song to play in my empty house. Usually I don’t think that much about my environment when I’m listening to music for the first time (at least, I don’t think I do?), but I feel really lame listening to this so early in the morning with my shitty laptop speakers. This is the kind of music you only listen to at a party. Probably not a great party, but a party nonetheless. Anyways, I guess the bass is killer. At least the song keeps telling me it is.

You can see JSTJR tonight at U Street Music Hall.
