Electro Indie Pop duo Sylvan Esso will be bringing their talents to the District on July 26. Hailing from Durham, North Carolina, their music is unlike anything else, even though the genre they fit into can be overrun with similar-sounding songs. Their debut self-titled album, released in 2014, is complete with dancey hits like “Coffee,”…

Courtney Barnett’s mellow Melbourne folk stylings are not to be missed.

There is a scene in Sorry to Bother You — the much hyped debut film from multihyphenate screenwriter-director Boots Riley — wherein our protagonist Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) is obliged to perform for wealthy, coked out partygoers. At first, expectations deflate around Cash’s lame attempt at freestyling until he begins half-rapping, half-shouting the n-word over…

When D.C. voters go to the ballot boxes on June 19, they will have the opportunity to give the city’s tipped workers a raise.
