This month in live music

Now that it’s getting a bit colder, many will be heading indoors, checking out movies, sporting events, and of course, fluid related ping-pong competitions. Instead, or perhaps in the meantime, October is jam packed with bands that are sure to.well. jam. Paolo Nutini will be disguising pop music as “thoughtful singer/songwriter tunes” Thursday at 9:30 […]

OK Go: Fall Fest headliners have a few tricks planned for Saturday

Trick question – which is harder: executing a synchronized dance on treadmills for three minutes straight without getting some nasty rug burns or finishing one of the most exhausting world tours in music history?

This month in live music

September means a lot of different things at GW: getting professors to sign you into a class, (maybe) buying books for said class and perhaps lining up that internship your parents keep hounding you about.

Old time rock and soul

The 24-year-old Marc Broussard is poised to bring his impossibly soulful music to the 9:30 Club this Thursday and Friday, opening up for G. Love and Special Sauce. The blend of his Bayou music and G. Love’s Philly-style grooves should provide a great atmosphere. “He’s a great guy,” Broussard said about G. Love. “We’re having […]

Country rock with Shooter

The Tennessee whiskey couldn’t warm the visible breath of the freezing concertgoers waiting to see Shooter Jennings at the 9:30 Club Friday night. The “late” show became an early show, as the doors didn’t open until around 11:30 p.m., and the acts didn’t begin until the wee hours of the morning. Outside, fans traded concert […]
