{RECAP} autre ne veut

On Friday night, my siblings were in town and treated me to a lovely evening on H Street rounded out with a necessary concert stop at Rock 'N Roll hotel to catch Autre Ne Veut. The night started off with some spooky scary music from DC's own Lenorable, which was complemented by the perfectly creepy Halloween decorations scattered throughout the venue.

I knew little to nothing about Autre Ne Veut prior to seeing them live, trusting only my brother's stamp of approval, which, as always, proved to be a solid guarantor of musical greatness. Autre Ne Veut (the moniker of New York singer Arthur Ashin) has the falsetto of some of my favorite singers like How To Dress Well with the dark electronic vibe of bands like Purity Ring. The result is emotional and passionate music that is truly captivating. That passion often translates to super sexy music (think an electronic indie R&B version of Maxwell), which proved to be very effective according to the couple spooning next to me.

My favorite song was "World War" during which I may have cut off circulation to my sister's hand as I tried to contain my excitement once I realized that the song features Whitney Houston's "How Will I Know."

Next Up: The Head and the Heart AND Thao and the Get Down Stay Down AND Quiet Life at the 9:30 Club next Monday!
