Greta Van Fleet

It’s a safe bet that the next time Greta Van Fleet comes to town, it’ll be at a much bigger venue with even more fanfare. That’s because their sold-out show at DC9, which also featured Goodbye June, was such a smash hit and it’s only a matter of time before these Michigan kids are household names. Before they took to the stage on this night, I had a chance to sit down with guitarist Jake Kiszka for a one-on-one interview. Do […]

Jack Johnson

It was a minimalist’s dream as Jack Johnson and Lake Street Dive took to the stage at Merriweather Post Pavilion. There weren’t any highly choreographed dance numbers or slickly-produced video packages. Hell, they barely even needed to plug in the headliner’s guitar. But those in attendance were treated to a marathon of acoustic hits from the surfer-turned-singer, as well as Lake Street Dive. At last count, it appears Johnson performed 27 different songs before they finally convinced him that the night […]

Highly Suspect

Highly Suspect might not have been the biggest name coming into DC101’s annual Kerfuffle music festival, but they absolutely stole the show. It can be a challenge to get folks off their feet when you’re only given 30 minutes or so in the early stages of a 12-hour marathon concert, but Highly Suspect packed ample amounts of energy and entertainment into their abbreviated set and the sellout crowd at Merriweather Post Pavilion responded. If you’ve never seen them live, do […]

MISSIO

With songs titled “I Do What I Want,” “I Don’t Even Care About You” and “Middle Fingers,” it’s safe to say MISSIO might have a chip on their proverbial shoulder. But that attitude and approach is clearly working for this dynamic duo of Matthew Brue and David Butler. These Austin, Texas natives delivered a memorable performance as one of the opening acts of DC101’s 2017 Kerfuffle.

Catfish and the Bottlemen

If I’m being completely honest, I don’t know a thing about Catfish and the Bottlemen. According to their Wikipedia page, they’re a British rock band from Wales and they got together in 2007. Oh, and apparently their lead singer, Van McCann, used to be in a Beatles cover band with bassist Benji Blakeway. So they’ve got that going for them, which is nice. All jokes aside, even though I wasn’t familiar with their work, Catfish and the Bottlemen was extremely popular with […]

Fitz and The Tantrums

  Since they burst onto the scene in 2008, Fitz and The Tantrums have produced a series of high-energy hits. Regardless of whether you consider them indie or pop, chances are you’ve heard your fair share of the Los Angeles-based band’s top tracks, like “Moneygrabber,” “The Walker” and, most recently, “HandClap.” While they were only able to play an abbreviated set at DC101’s Kerfuffle this year, they did not disappoint during their time in the spotlight. Lead singers Michael Fitzpatrick and Noelle Scaggs […]

Jimmy Eat World

For three years of my life, I worked as a bartender at my father’s bar on the weekends to make some extra cash. While much of that experience was highly enjoyable, not everything was sunshine and lollipops. For example, during that timeframe I can conservatively say that I heard roughly six million renditions of “Sweetness,” “The Middle” and countless other tracks from the Jimmy Eat World catalog. After covering their performance at DC101’s Kerfuffle 2017, I am relieved to report they are […]
