ToDo ToDay: Emma Ruth Rundle, Gabriel Teodros, and a New Ice Cream Spot

rundleOn her debut solo album, Some Heavy Ocean, Los Angeles-based Emma Ruth Rundle puts away her past life as a guitarist for post-­rock band Red Sparowes while creating a sound that’s also different from her current band, Marriages.

It seems that band life might have hindered Rundle’s creativity. Read more >>> Emma Ruth Rundle performs with Stephen Brodsky at 9 p.m. at DC9, 1940 9th St. NW. $10.
