US Royalty @ Rock and Roll Hotel – Saturday 10.18

I’m always a sucker for the local guys. Sometimes maybe even dishing out props more so for the hometown ties rather than talent or the art of performing live. Not so for US Royalty. Not only are these guys from DC and are good people, they are flat out the real deal. See for yourself this Saturday night at Rock and Roll Hotel as they headline a bill with Bear Hands, Blonde Acid Cult and FFFever. And as a bonus, throw-in DJ Gavin Holland (Nouveau Riche) with Garatuchi upstairs and you have a bonafide RAGER on your hands.

I’ve been listening to US Royalty here and there for a little while now and although I never like to compare and relate music and feel you should listen for yourself this week then see for yourself on Saturday night – but I could compare them to KOL or a little bit of Cold War Kids. I recently had the pleasure of catching them in Baltimore at Metro Gallery a couple weeks back and was throughly impressed by their set. They tore through a set that included their tracks from their self-titled EP (avail on iTunes), Raincoat, John Henry and Every Summer. Check out some press on them here at SPIN, DCist and Nylon.

Trust me. See them Saturday night at RNR. It’s only a matter of time before these guys emerge as DC’s next big thing. If they haven’t already.

Here’s a vid of them performing Every Summer a while back at Ottobar in Bmore. Then a photo by Wakeman.
