A Weekend of Choices

Many, many options this weekend in the area to catch your favorite music. Every night has something definitely worthwhile, all over the region.


Imperial China is having a CD release party and they want you there! They are with Double Dagger, Zulu Pearls, and the Black & White Jacksons. Catch them at the Rock and Roll Hotel in DC.

One of my picks for Best of Philly '07 (and in serious contention for it this year too), Papertrigger is at World Cafe. They are joined by Drink Up Buttercup, who seem to play somewhere every night.

Also, Gang Gang Dance livens it up at Johnny Brenda's in Philly.

Imperial China - There Is No Translation
Double Dagger - Camera Chimera
Zulu Pearls - Half Hearted
Black & White Jacksons - Racing Horse
Papertrigger - We Are Nations Now!
Drink Up Buttercup - Young Ladies

Hailing from the Twin Cities and supporting a new album, Cloud Cult swing through DC with New Yorkers The Forms and locals Exit Clov and The Beanstalk Library. Catch them at the Rock and Roll Hotel.
