Concert Calendar: Scream, The Max Levine Ensemble, and The Roots

Sunday

Scream was a local punk back when D.C. initiated that whole Dischord thing (having released four albums themselves to the label). These guys play some raw and kick ass rock and roll, somewhat influenced by Bad Brains. No one really kicks it like these guys, and the original line-up is getting back together for a show this Sunday at the Black Cat. Tickets are only $12, and bring a toy for Toys for Tots if you can!

Wednesday

If anyone digs the DIY punk of Washington, D.C., they’re surely well versed on the area’s The Max Levine Ensemble. They rock it like most Plan-It-X Records folk punkers, by combining upbeat pop-punk with a folky/twangy “let’s tell a story” vibe. Go check out Spoonboy and company this Wednesday at the Black Cat for an $8 backstage show with some good company.

Next Week

If you’re in the area for the 29th or 30th of this month, make sure to take into consideration a trip to the 9:30 Club for a night with The Roots. They’ve got a new record coming out in February, and their new material surely won’t disappoint. Expect one of the tightest live performances by any band, let alone hip-hop group, to grace the stage in front of you. In this economy though, you get what you pay for: tickets are $45 each night. Make sure to grab them quickly, because it’s sure to sell out.
