Tomorrow night, local band Lorelei will be hitting the main stage at the Black Cat with openers Shortstack and The Moderate. If you’ve been tapped into the local music scene for a while, you might remember Lorelei when they first debuted in the 90s. They split up, moved away, put out a new album, and now are back putting on some live shows.

In this lineup, however, I would say that the don’t-miss band is Shortstack, also hailing from DC. “Commotion” is a kooky, upbeat, country-tinged track, and their bio starts with the sentence “Adrian Carroll, Burleigh Seaver, Mike Pahn, and Scott Gursky are thieves.” I can dig it.
