Great DC Bands

CALIGARI
Atmospheric and angsty--kinda Echo & the Bunnymen for the 90s--with great catchy songs. I listen to a lot of demo tapes and this, truly, was one time that I found myself singing one of their songs later that day.

CLARK'S DITCH
Strong female vocals over aggressive post-punk... a great combination.

DEAD GIRLS AND OTHER STORIES
Pretty girl alterna-pop. Lush and lovely vocals and harmonies.

ELIZABETH
Pretty female vocals and melodies over grinding guitar pop: a perfect combination of dirty/sweet.

FECKLESS BEAST
60's garage rock meets 70's new wave for a thoroughly modern love affair.

HONEYPOLE
Goddess Rock! Blondie meets Metallica.

THE KINGDOM OF LEISURE
The organic, trippy invention of Ty Hardaway and Rich Walkling: Tripgrass. Talk about setting your path, these two guys created their own genre just so they wouldn't have to play by anyone else's rules.

LESBIAN BOY
Irreverant, loud and unrepentant. That defines Lesbian Boy, but come to think of it, that describes Rock 'n Roll, don't it? Mixing the Cramps, the Tubes and Southern Culture on the Skids and turning the knob to 11, Lesbian Boy sure raises a ruckus.

MOBIA'S TRIP
Stunning instrumentals strongly presented in a jam band format. Not usually my cup of tea but I have not seen a show of theirs that I didn't walk away raving about them.

POWER LLOYD
The best power/pop/punk that DC has to offer.

THE MEAT JOY
Smart chick lyrics delivered with raspy authority wrapped up in retro punk stylings.

SISTERS OF MORRISSEY
Art punk. You'll either love or hate frontman Sean Wiesel's deadpan delivery... I love it.

THE SPONTANES
Pretty female vocals over ethereal guitar in an alt-pop format. This is smooth, intoxicating stuff that (I think) could garner a cult following once the word gets out.

THREE SENSE SHY
Simply the best cover band in the DC/Baltimore area.
