Playlist: All The Music You Need To Hear In D.C., July 14 To 20

By Ally Schweitzer


Sound Advice is Bandwidth’s weekly playlist of artists we think you should catch in D.C. this week.

Both nouveau and sepia-toned hip-hop get stage time this week, with tomorrow’s Phil Ade/Lightshow twofer at U Street Music Hall, Thursday’s D.C. Loves Dilla showcase, De La Soul’s 25th anniversary party at Howard Theatre Saturday, and Salt N Pepa’s stop at Verizon Center Sunday. It also happens to be a great week for earwormy pop ensembles: Bandwidth video stars Phox perform at The Hamilton Saturday, Glasgow pop geniuses Camera Obscura (above) play 9:30 Club Friday, and Philly’s Cheers Elephant headline DC9 with support from locals The Jackfields Thursday. But if you want to see two rising acts in D.C.’s punk-rock scene, don’t miss Priests at Fort Reno Thursday and Olivia Neutron-John in Arlington on Saturday.

More chaos, fuzz and hummable indie-rock in this week’s playlist, below.
