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.


This music video is already making me uncomfortable, but in a fun way! There is so much bad dancing and weird eye contact. Two of my favorite things. Thankfully this song is actually pretty great. It’s… wacky. All of it. The music, the lyrics, the goddamn video. It’s all so wacky and silly and yet the chorus is so so catchy. This is going to be stuck in my head all day and I’m not at all upset about it. A++, I’m into it.

You can see Strange Names at DC9 tonight.
