What To Do Tonight

Prior to leaving DC I was going post the top 10 things I'll miss about the music scene.* Ranking very on that nonexistent list was seeing Imperial China perform "Rådhus". Odd name for a song, isn't it? It's actually Danish for "Roadhouse". The guys are big Patrick Swayze fans (who isn't?). I think they dedicated the show tonight to him. I might be wrong about that. Anyway...

Tonight Imperial China is having CD release show at the Rock & Roll Hotel. The debut CD/EP recording (pictured above) is Methods: and it includes the aforementioned "Rådhus". Also on the bill tonight is Double Dagger, a trio out of Baltimore. I've read a lot about these guys and the praise for their live shows is universal. Zulu Pearls and Black & White Jacksons are also on the bill. All for $10. You're not going to get a better deal for your entertainment dollar this weekend.

* Coming in at #1 on that list the reformation of The Fake Accents. I'm not exactly what's going on but it's been long enough. I demand a new album and new shows, one of which must take place in Austin, TX. I'm looking at you DM!

I am not sure how the Embarcadero relates to "Imperial China." In any event, see you soon Jumbo Slice.
