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’m already sold on this band because the album cover is definitely Reagan from The Exorcist and that’s really all I care about. The song is mostly yelling and FAST GUITAR STUFF, but I’m sold on the aesthetics so whatever. I’m just realizing this is an entire album. All these songs are short as hell and basically sound the same, but their consistency is kind of soothing. I know exactly what I’m going to get and I’m cool with that.

You can see Negative Approach at The Pinch tonight.
