Hot Ticket: Modern Man @ Black Cat, 5/20/11

The Black Cat is hosting a great evening of local music on Friday night that features singer-songwriter Brandon Butler opening for Modern Man and Shortstack.

After their performance at last month’s Sweetlife Festival, Modern Man is something of a We Love DC staff favorite these days. After the fest, our own Tom Bridge declared, “(Modern Man) really wailed!” When discussing Modern Man in his review of the festival, Andrew Markowitz described their sound as “similar to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s harder songs with a hint of outlaw country-rock sound,” and said that out of the many DC local bands Modern Man is one he would be happy to pay a cover to see again. Thumbs up from my WLDC colleagues is enough to convince me these guys are worth checking out.

If their endorsement ain’t enough for ya, consider these two tracks Modern Man kindly gave us permission to share with you:
