The Voice’s Concert Calendar has found new life on Vox Populi. Every Friday, we’ll bring you the concerts you don’t want to miss in the next week. Since this one has Saturday concerts, though, it runs today.

There are some great shows to check out in DC during the upcoming week.  You won’t want to miss …

Cold War Kids 


The Cold War Kids are touring to support their new album “Loyalty to Loyalty,” and they’ll be at the 9:30 Club this weekend.  According the the 9:30 Club’s website, the show is sold out, but you can get tickets for the right price and the right wink.

Bear Hands


Experimental Rockers Bear Hands will be at the Rock and Roll Hotel tomorrow.  I’d never heard of the band before this weekend, but SPIN called their Golden EP a “pitch-perfect pairing of post-punk and indie rock.”  This concert is only $10, and the Orange Circulator will get you within a few blocks of the venue.

The New Year


Texas based quintet The New Year will be playing at the DC9 Club.  DC9 is is the U St. corridor which is accessible via the green line.  Self described “psychedelic folk-rock” band The Uglysuit will be opening.

Minus the Bear


Paste Magazine wrote that Minus the Bear’s music might appear as conventional rock but “further inspection reveals a much more nuanced approach laced with atmospheric keyboard textures … and the occasional rump-shakin’ funk-disco beat.”  Catch them at the 9:30 Club.  Doors open at 5:30.
