As guitarist Teddy Scott would say, #BencoolenRises in another stride to take over the DC music scene. Tonight they’ll be joined by Thaylobleu, Little War Twins and Ms. Fridrich at Black Cat. Bencoolen, a GW band and WRGW favorite, have an old school meets modern indie rock vibe with their metal inspired drummer, funky bass, and sassy saxophone. Tonight’s set will feature original songs, including the premiere of a new one, and will only incorporate one cover.
This year alone they’ve conquered the Velvet Lounge, Wonderland Ballroom, Mellow Mushroom and DC9 in their efforts to solidify their presence in the historic DC music scene. They’ve been working on their first EP which will be coming out later this summer. Bencoolen also did with a live in-studio and interview with WRGW earlier this month. Check it out here.
You can also pick up one of their new blue Bencoolen shirts. One can never have too much Bencoolen swag.
So whether you’re looking to celebrate the end of finals or are just looking for good, live local music, Bencoolen is sure to put on a great show with music that’ll have you dancing all night long.
You can RSVP to the event here.
Doors open at 8pm, show starts at 9pm. See you there!
