Hot Ticket: Little Daylight @ Sixth and I Historic Synagogue, 3/25/14

littledaylightFresh from SXSW, Brooklyn trio Little Daylight are set to join fellow bands Terraplane Sun and Flagship in what’s being billed as the “Three of Clubs” tour, hitting the Sixth and I Historic Synagogue in DC on Tuesday, March 25.

I single out Little Daylight, soon to release their first full-length album, Hello Memory, because they represent a kind of music I always adore — great electronic dance music with cool female vocals, as showcased by their latest single, “Siren Call.”

Nikki Taylor, Matt Lewkowicz and Eric Zeiler got their start remixing singles for the likes of Passion Pit and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes but now they have broken out as a full-fledged dreampop band with some catchy tunes that somehow bear ambient atmospherics over strong rhythms. Check out their video for “Overdose” and see for yourself.

The Three of Clubs tour also includes Flagship, from Charlotte, NC, (some of us may have seen them open for The Wombats at the 9:30 Club) and Terraplane Sun, from Venice Beach, CA.

Jonathan Safran Foer Comes to Sixth & I

I love Jonathan Safran Foer. With equal parts romantic love and wanting-to-be-him love (it’s real, look it up). He’s accomplished more in his short years (just a few more than me) that I ever will, and I accept that fact. And today, I found out that a) he’s originally from DC and b) he’s actual, in real life, coming to DC– tomorrow!

JSF will be at Sixth and I tomorrow at 7 to read and discuss his new book, Eating Animals. It’s his first non-fiction book, after Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, both of which are amazing. This new one tackles our food, and the moral decision not to eat animals, which he came to after his son was born. Excellent stuff.
