A Case of the Fridays

First up this week is Band of Blue’s “Evil Eye.” It’s funky and bluesy, and it rides some searing guitar and saxophone work to great heights. If you like what you hear, Band of Blue will be at Nation Nightclub in D.C. Tuesday, April 25.

The folk-tinged “Girl In The War,” by singer/songwriter Josh Ritter, closes out today’s selections. Ritter deftly weaves lyrics about the tragic effects of war in and out of beautiful melodies and intricate arrangements. He’ll be coming to the Birchmere Wednesday, April 26th. Check out his MySpace site here.
