We've been enchanted by this electronic group who uses Nintendo sounds to make some amazing music. They're sure to be a unique and super fun show live!

'80s god Billy Idol is back on tour and coming to DC! We can't wait to check this out live for ourselves especially with modern day rockers BRONCHO opening!
January 25 & 26: Ben Howard, 9:30 Club
We LOVE Ben Howard and could not be more delighted that he's accepted our invitation to come back to DC and play more music for us (even if we do have to share him with the rest of the 9:30 audience).
February 5: Viceroy, 9:30 Club
Whoa baby -- U Street Music Hall can't hold all the fans of uber-producer Viceroy, creator of one of our most favorite remixes EVVVVER. Put on your dancing shoes and get to this show.
February 6: Jamie Cullum, Lincoln Theatre
One of our favorite British singers is about to wow the entire crowd of the historic Lincoln Theatre -- be there!
February 7: DMD's Third Anniversary Show, 9:30 Club
A DC Music Download show is not to be missed, especially when it features Paperhaus and so many more DC bands!
February 10: Sir Sly, 9:30 Club
We're suckers for Sir Sly's indie pop (and the lead singer's resemblance to Nick Miller) and are pumped to see them rock out in this larger venue!
February 13: Sturgill Simpson, 9:30 Club
SO pumped for this breath of fresh country air to come to 9:30!
February 15: Theophilus London, U Street Music Hall
This super cool hip hop star is going to be a great show -- maybe worthy of a belated Valentine's Day gift for your hipster boyfriend??

A night featuring "All About That Bass" and "Geronimo"?! Tweens everywhere are overjoyed (and our guilty pleasure-filled hearts are as well).

This Irish crooner gives us all the feelings. Catch him in this historic theater where its okay if you get weak in the knees because you can sit!

A staple on pretty much every TIOJ playlist ever, Joshua Radin puts on a helluva live show -- be sure to grab tickets before they sell out!

We cannot get enough of the infectiously poppy tunes from this group and can't wait to finally see them live!

Two of our bands to watch in 2015 have paired up for a show that's guaranteed to put a smile on your face and get you moving!

This indie/synth pop duo has been a go-to on our changing of seasons playlists with their BROOD-ing (haha, sorry) and beautiful music.
March 28: Father John Misty with King Tuff, 9:30 Club
FJM (former Fleet Foxes drummer) was one of the most entertaining shows of 2013 and he's set to do it all again for his latest album I Love You, Honeybear. We can't wait to see what jokes/slanderous comments he has to share with us this time around!
March 31: Jessie Ware, 9:30 Club
Jessie has BLOWN up (rightfully so) since the last time she was in DC -- get tickets to this before they sell out!

What a combo of two generations of brooding, much discussed female singers.
