"SXSW"

Couldn’t make it to the South By Southwest Festival last week? No worries my music loving friends, because the SXSW Music Festival is coming to you!

More than 30,000 paid attendees attended this year’s festival in Austin, TX, which featured nearly 2,200 bands from all across the globe. The 10-day festival also included an interactive showcase for emerging technology and a film convention.

SXSW, which began in 1987, has sparked the careers of a number of today’s biggest music stars, including John Mayer, Katy Perry, Amy Winehouse, The Strokes, and yes, Hanson. You never know, maybe one of these up-and-coming bands will be the next big thing. Check them out when they visit the District in the next few weeks.

Carousel

College mates Jackson Phillips and Kevin Friedman formed this electro pop band in late 2011. After moving the band from Boston to Brooklyn in 2012, Carousel is setting out on the road armed with an assortment of dreamy, synth infused singles.

Listen: Let’s Go Home.
When: April 3, 8 pm.
Where: Black Cat.

The Lone Bellow

The songs from The Lone Bellow’s self-entitled album were born from a horse riding accident that almost left lead singer Zach Williams’ wife paralyzed. While his wife would fully recover, Williams was encouraged by friend and fellow band mate Brian Elmquist to turn his journal writing into song lyrics. From those lyrics came the deeply personal, folk and gospel infused songs that fill The Lone Bellow’s debut album.

Listen: You Never Need Nobody.
When: April 17, 8 pm.
Where: DC9.

Telekinesis

Telekiness is one man, Michael Benjamin Lerner, a 26-year-old musical veteran that is just now finding his place among the best power-pop bands making music today. Based out of Seattle, Lerner is touring in support of his latest album “Darmarion,” which is out April 2.

Listen: Imaginary Friend.
When: May 6, 8 pm.
Where: Black Cat.

Caveman 

This New York City based rock band formed in 2009 when a group of close friends decided that they would rather be in a band together than be in bands separately. As a result, Caveman came to be and a distinct sound of rich guitars and layered drum beats was created. Caveman’s sophomore, self-titled album will be released on April 2.

Listen: In The City.
When: April 9, 8 pm.
Where: Black Cat.

Disclosure

This dance-pop duo is comprised of brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence from South London. Bursting on to the scene with their remix of Jesse Ware’s “Running” in 2012, this talented DJ combo is making waves with their seemingly effortless takes on house and UK garage music.

Listen: Latch ft. Sam Smith
When: March 22, 10PM
Where: U Street Music Hall

As a heaping dose of irony would have it, the original show from the contemporary, environmentally focused music ensemble that performs a climate change opera was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy. Luckily for fans, the show is now rescheduled for Monday, February 11.

The rescheduled performance will feature Matthew Burtner and Scott Deal’s award winning telematic opera, Auksalaq. This cutting-edge experience integrates music, sonic and visual art, science and social commentary to provide a statement like no other on the impact of global climate change.

Throughout the performance, the audience is encouraged to contribute to the opera’s sights and sounds using NOMADS, a specially developed mobile phone app.

“The remote sites share sounds and images through a high bandwidth Internet connection to create a musical and visual ecosystem of interacting layers, which form one rich, intricate macro‐timbre.”

Auksalaq will also feature in-person instrumental and vocal performances by the EcoSono Ensemble, augmented by telematic performances by artists including Bit20, Nief Norf Ensemble and McGill Percussion Ensemble.

The show takes place at the Phillips Collection and begins at 7 pm. For information on tickets, visit the event’s webpage of the Phillips Collection.

"9th"

The founder of Sweet Tea Pumpkin Pie Festival Dave Mann and photographer Rachel Eisley have teamed up to bring an all-ages music venue to 9th Street NW, just a few blocks from the Convention Center.

The new venue, called 9th & Beats (1219 9th Street NW), is scheduled to open to the public on Thursday, December 13 within the Old Dominion Brewhouse. Mann and Eisley transformed a 2,000-square-foot room into a performing arts stage ready to hold music (both live and spun) and comedy events. Rotating art exhibits will also adorn the walls of the room, which can hold roughly 240 guests.

For opening night, 9th & Beats will host “Rebels With a Cause” music series, featuring The Black Sparks with Ladle Fight at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased online or at the door.

Mann and Eisley aim to bring live music for the younger crowd, while simultaneously booking comedians for the 18-and-over patrons.

For now, 9th & Beats will be open Thursday through Saturday, but the venue eventually plans to expand its hours to seven days a week. On its Facebook wall, 9th & Beats said, “I think that we won’t have slow weeknights. Actually, once the venue goes to seven days a week, we will be hosting theater, burlesque, etc. on weeknights.”

Mann and Eisley also have plans for using the space during the day.

“That is the big news we will be sharing in February, so stay tuned!”
