ToDo ToDay: “Frozen Music,” Janel and Anthony, and Paperhaus

In his latest exhibition, “Frozen Music,” photographer Alan Sislen focuses on buildings, but he’s careful to clarify that they’re not “architectural photographs.” He notes that the flowing, lyrical nature of the images he made led him to see them in a musical context taking the title from a Goethe quote: “Music is liquid architecture and [...]

ToDo ToDay: Temples, The Walkmen, and Cheap Margaritas on Tap

 

Temples is a hard band to love. Not because its two singles aren't insanely catchy retro-psychedelia that sound like they could have come out in the late ’60s. It’s precisely because this English band is devoted to sounding so studiously vintage that love is pushed aside for admiration and raw emotion suppressed for clinical analysis. [...]

ToDo ToDay: Bassekou Kouyate, H Street Festival, Terry Malts, and Erotic Fan Fiction

While Malian musician Bassekou Kouyate and his group Ngoni Ba recorded their latest album, Jama Ko, in a Bamako studio, the nation was immersed in turmoil: The military was overthrowing the president, and Islamic fundamentalists were imposing sharia law in the north. Inspired and affected by the political disorder, Kouyate created an energetic album incorporating the [...]

ToDo ToDay: Woolly Mammoth’s Detroit and Blondie

Lisa D’Amour’s Pulitzer finalist play Detroit isn’t actually set in Detroit, but its vision of a crumbling suburbia does seem comparable to a city where homes are sold for close to the cost of a few six-packs. One couple, Mary and Ben, invites their new, recovering junkie neighbors, Sharon and Kenny, over for a cookout, and anxiety and [...]

ToDo ToDay: A Goodbye Party at Dance Place, Mary Coble at Corcoran

Ask any local dancers about performing at Dance Place, and they will likely give you an earful about the dressing areas. The tiny concrete cells more closely resemble a state park bathroom than a proper place to stretch and prepare for a performance. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of love for the Brookland [...]

ToDo ToDay: Wiz Khalifa, Paperhaus, Screen Vinyl Image

If you’re planning to attend the Under the Influence of Music tour at Jiffy Lube Live, prepare to be met with a cloud of smoke. That’s to be expected from headliners Wiz Khalifa and A$AP Rocky, who have been known to drop a weed reference or 12 on their tracks. Also worth rolling a joint [...]

ToDo ToDay: Face to Face, SuperNOVA, Capital Pride, and Russian Pop

I first heard a Face to Face song on a Vagrant Records compilation. It was the early 2000s, and the band—surprisingly noisy for Vagrant, better known as home to weepy emo bands Dashboard Confessional and The Get Up Kids—had already been kicking it for a decade. The band cooled off for a few years in [...]
