Tonight in Music: Beach House and William Elliott Whitmore
The Portland Mercury - over 4 years
BEACH HOUSE, DUSTIN WONG (Roseland, 8 NW 6th) Read our article on Beach House. WILLIAM ELLIOTT WHITMORE, SAMANTHA CRAIN (Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE 39th) William Elliott Whitmore is the classic old soul—he's a 34-year-old in modern Facebook America who sounds more like he's 60 and caught in the Dust Bowl. There aren't many others that pull it off with the sincerity of Whitmore, who spins yarns with the aid of only his banjo and the vocal rasp of a lifelong smoker. Whether he's waxing political, as he did on 2009's Animals in the Dark, or on the salvation of hard work on last year's Field Hymns, Whitmore's voice cuts to the bone. Perhaps it should come as no surprise that he was reared in the hardcore scene of Lee County, Iowa—Whitmore's songs have the punch of an early-'80s punk band, and far more raw power.

Up & Coming
The Portland Mercury - over 4 years
Music previews for the week of September 27-October 3. THURSDAY 9/27 GARBAGE, SCREAMING FEMALES (Roseland, 8 NW 6th) See My, What a Busy Week! FOGHORN STRINGBAND, CAROLINE OAKLEY (Velo Cult, 1969 NE 42nd) Read our article on Foghorn Stringband. COLLEEN GREEN, PLATEAUS, STILL CAVES (Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) Colleen Green wants you to know that if it weren't for early American punk rock, she may never have started making music. Her debut LP, Milo Goes to Compton, is a less-than-subtle reference to the Descendents' first album, and the first song is a cover of their "Good Good Things." But lest you think her punkophilia is limited to the West Coast, "I Wanna Be Degraded" extols the Ramones and S&M. I like Green because she doesn't sound like she lives in LA (which she does), and because I suspect that she is so much more than the pastiche she has made herself out to be. To me, her psychedelic girl-group inter ...

Indie Kicks: Remembering the '90s
Bethesda Patch - over 4 years
Forget Natitude, it's time for some Raditude. There are few things better than hanging out with some friends and seeing live music, but with so many shows all over the city it's tough to know what'll be good. Don't worry, we have you covered. Check out Indie Kicks every Thursday for our rundown of who's coming to the DC area in the coming months. This weekend: Friday, Sponge is playing the Recher Theatre in Towson. If you came of age in the early '90s as I did then you remember what a great time it was for the radio. You could hear everything from Sonic Youth to Gin Blossoms and the pop hits still had some meaning behind them. One of those hits was "Molly" by Sponge, with its popular refrain, "Sixteen candles down the drain." These are the songs that I haven't heard in years, but still know every word to. The show is $16 and doors are at 7 p.m. Upcoming Shows: Deerhoof - Sept. 5, Black Cat Sunn O))) - Sept. 6, Black Cat J. Roddy Walston and the Business - ...
