Thursday night one of my favorite DC bands, Black Hills, plays Rock & Roll Hotel. They are opening for Berlin’s ambient electronic ‘oFF’ Love, and headliners How To Dress Well. Their sound layers dreamy vocals, lush synth-strings, ethereal electronics and groovy bass & drum lines with euphoric results. If you’ve missed me gush about them before, check out my review of their show at Black Cat at the beginning of this summer, and my interview with singer/producer Aaron Estes.
Black Hills opens the night at 8pm sharp, so be sure to get to the club early!

Alexia was born and raised in Arlington, VA. She has been a cellist since age four, and a lover of rock & roll soon after. The first tape she owned was “Make It Big” by Wham, and the first tape she bought was Nirvana’s “Nevermind,” and she still loves both. She was a member of local synth-rock outfit Soft Complex for several years, and has recorded with bands including Engine Down and Two if By Sea. By day she works for a non-profit distributing royalties to musicians and labels. She currently plays cello, lap-steel guitar and tambourine in the DC post-folk/Americana band The Torches.
