Head to someone else's house for live music tonight.

Teen Mom carved out a nice, fuzzy indie pop niche two years ago with its debut EP Mean Tom. The band’s continued to tinker with their sound since, exploring shoegaze à la the Jesus and Mary Chain and Ride on 2013’s Gilly.
Today, the band released its latest single, “I’m In Love With His Dreams,” marking another venture into new sonic territory. [...]
Cymbeline is to Shakespeare’s canon what the Dangerous album is to Michael Jackson’s—underrated, eclipsed by bigger hits, but well worth revisiting. The play, one of the Bard’s earliest, follows a convoluted series of events that span a royal kidnapping, a cruel stepmother, and the Roman invasion of Britain. All 14 characters in Fiasco Theater's production at the Folger [...]
Mutual Benefit's lush new record, Love's Crushing Diamond, is less an album of folk songs than a collage of sounds, some melodic, some extraneous, but all equally vital in telling a story of love, heartbreak, and emotional maturity. Opening track “Strong River” begins as a soft array of strings, guitars, bells, and drums before elevating into [...]
Brandon Hill and Peter Chang didn’t start their buzzed-about art and lifestyle company No Kings Collective at the District of Columbia Arts Center (DCAC), but they did get their start there. To help celebrate the upcoming 25th anniversary of DCAC, No Kings Collective has organized The 25 Project. The two-day exhibition features 25 D.C. artists, [...]
Here we are, a couple of days from the weekend, and you're looking for some musical happy-hour plans—good. On Friday, Washington City Paper is collaborating with the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Luce Foundation Center (not for the first time!) on this month's installment of the Luce Unplugged series. For the event, we picked two of our favorite [...]
D.C. fuzz-pop quartet Teen Mom says its newest EP, Gilly, is about "longing, time, and not leaving the house." I'd offer that this is the kind of music you'd generally listen to in the house—specifically, in a bedroom decorated with posters of Galaxie 500 and My Bloody Valentine.
Though the EP, released today, doesn't sound made [...]
Softly fuzzy D.C. band Teen Mom released a new single today, "Kitchen." The first single since the band's Mean Tom EP, it's perhaps the longest song the quartet (formerly a trio) has ever released—a whole six-and-a-half minutes. What are these dudes trying to be, Yes?
Just kidding. The tune's longish, yes, but this is no prog-rock [...]
There are a lot of people who would cringe at the thought of seeing an "Afro-Colombian punk and folkloric funk band," as the M.A.K.U. Sound System refers to itself. Not because any of those things individually is a turnoff, but because collectively the words could imply a high-concept world-beat overreach. There’s really only one thing [...]
When selecting its latest lineup of "pocket operas," shorter works that aren’t normally presented together, the In Series opera company looked all the way back to 1918. In that year, both Stravinsky and Puccini managed to create L’Histoire Du Soldat (Story of the Soldier) and Gianni Schicchi, respectively. Stravinsky’s dance/dramatic reading is kind of like a Russian [...]
