Calling all fans of electronic music, cuddling, electronic music that sounds like cuddling, Pokémon, Canada, and just a straight up good time: Canadian Prince aka Mr. Steal Your Wifi aka Producer Game Omar Borkan Al Galaaka aka the Bae Whisperer* is back at U Street Music Hall next Wednesday, November 19th. Now, this isn’t Ryan Hemsworth’s first time at the club. I happened to catch his set earlier this year, and I can assure you that you are not going to want to miss out on this show. He’s currently on his Sucker for Punishment tour, and he’s brought along the artists from his Shh Secret Songs project, with different artists performing on different dates. For his Washington DC stop, Ryan Hemsworth will be playing with Tennyson and Ricky Eat Acid (who actually happen to be two of my favorite artists from the project.) Believe me when I say that this is probably going to be one of the most fun shows you’ll go to in a while, so bring a friend or twelve and make sure you put on your dancing shoes. Check out his latest album, Alone For The First Time, which just dropped, and is full of his typical woozy, unconventional sound.

Excited yet? Fortunately for you, this Friday we’re giving away a pair of tickets to catch the Remix Ryan Gosling live and in the flesh! Check our Twitter page on Friday afternoon for your chance to win. Don’t fret if you don’t win — they’re still available for purchase here, but get them quick. Good luck!

These days, it seems that every new band is from Brooklyn; and whatever’s in the water over there seems to be working for Wet- the latest and greatest from the area. Kelly Zutrau, Martin Sulkow and Joe Valle began making music together when they were students in New York, and since then, the trio has released a self-titled EP. The band crafts the perfect blend of minimal electronic, R&B, and pop, drawing from all three genres to create their signature sound. Similarly, their impressive contrast of dreamy instrumentals against evocative lyricism captured the attention of the packed U Street Music Hall this past Saturday.
