October MP3 Bunch Of The Month

Going forward, each month we’re going to give you a little MP3 taste of who’s playing around the area during the next month or so. If any of these songs sound interesting, definitely go see the band.

**I first saw Matt Nathanson open at the 9:30 Club what seems like eons ago. He’s a crafty bastard live, pulling in the crowd with his witty banter and catchy songs like “Suspended.” Anyway, he’ll be back at the 9:30 Club on Friday, 10/14, and I’ve got tix.

**The boys from Speechwriters LLC are hitting Jammin Java Friday October 14th. Yeah, it’s the same night as Matt Nathanson, but it’s also out in Vienna, VA, so feel free to do some shopping at Tyson’s, and then go listen to acoustic bounciness and tight harmonies, like the ones in “Anodyne.”

**I could write a bunch about Butch Walker, but you’re probably getting bored of all of this text. I’ll just say that he puts out some “well-produced rock,” he’s playing the Black Cat Thursday, November 3rd, and I can’t wait to see this show. Take a listen to “Maybe It's Just Me,” and judge for yourself.

**By November 14th, all your Halloween candy should be gone, so you can get your power pop-rock sugar fix at the All-American Rejects 9:30 Club show. They’ve got extremely catchy choruses w/ great harmonies, as evidenced by their first single, “Dirty Little Secret.” But sssshhhhh….don’t tell anyone.
