Sunday night I went to the 9:30 Club for the first time and had a
thoroughly enjoyable experience. Ha! I'd like to be able to say I
'rocked out', but I don't really feel like I can apply that term to the
Decembrists (too mellow for rock out). What I did find is that I like
their quirky style and definitely enjoy them better live than via cd. I
developed a small crush on the lead singer and discovered the
accordian player/pianist is really Terra.
I also got kind of attached to the opening act, Sons and Daughters. My
almost immediate attachment reaffirmed my love for rock (or at least
groups that meet my definition of rock).
Anyway, I had a swell time and wanted to chronicle the moment. No
budding rock journalist here. Once I'm on a real computer, I'll post
some pictures.


  1. Yeah, the show was great! I love how The Dec's use so many different instruments. And Sons and Daughters were awesome, too! At first I was afraid they were going to be like Pretty Girls Make Graves (blech) but oh no, those Scots rocked it out!

    I forget, have you been to the Black Cat?

    I forgot about the Terra thing! We MUST ask her to introduce us to Colin.
    Did your friend enjoy the concert too?
    I'm glad you liked your first 930 club experience :-D


  3. I really liked that it was no smoking.

  5. Nope...haven't been to the Black Cat. Want to go back to U Street.

  6. Yeah, I like the Black Cat better for some reason although the 930 Club has stepped it up the past few times. Black Cat is more accessible and you get closer to the bands. I would choose 930 Club if you're going expecting good sound but the Black Cat for an amazing up close experience.
    And I've met more bands at Black Cat:)
