District Sounds, hosted by Washington Post pop music critic Chris Richards, features conversation and concert with Redline Graffiti. Think garage rock mixed with electronica and R&B.
Named for a stretch of graffiti art that runs along Washington’s oldest public train line, the quartet’s sound has been described by reviewers as “somewhere between Passion Pit and Frank Ocean” (Blisspop), “electro-rock newcomers” (Dave Malitz, Washington Post), and “very cinematic sounding” (Alexis Hauk, Washingtonian). Judge for yourself: listen to their new EP here.
Richards has been hosting these concert/conversation evenings for several months now. To learn more about what Richards hopes to accomplish, watch a clip from WETA here.
Tickets are $10/advance, $15/day of. Conversation at 7 p.m. Performance at 7:30 p.m on Friday, May 9.
