but with spring just around the corner our thoughts are turning to … indie rock! Lucky for us, the Dirty Names have arrived with the purpose of bringing back the lost art of pure Rock n Roll -- with a modern twist. This up-and-coming band, based out of Annapolis, is made up of four young men who have been playing music since they could shake a rattle: Harrison Cofer, Matt Rose, Kit Whitacre, and Sam Wetterau. The boys have been touring pretty much nonstop all over America this winter to support their newest EP, Sweat Box, and we are pumped that we were able to find a spot on their busy itinerary.
The Dirty Names are rarely mentioned without a reference to the Rolling Stones, and truth to tell there is a bit of Jagger swagger there. But these guys have the chops to back it up, and we’re all in for a spectacularly high energy evening. Needless to say, this is no sit-down show, folks, so we’re taking it to the VFW (thanks to everyone at the VFW -- again! -- for being so welcoming to us). Takoma Park’s VFW Post 350 is located just a few blocks from the Tree House, and since it's a slightly larger venue, it enables us to host a few more people. Plus, they have a bar! (So no BYOB this time.) And it's got a great vibe and the show is still very much a Tree House event.
