Alternative rock band Broke Royals to play Tropicalia, 9/18, and support second EP release

Broke Royals are a bold duo hailing from Virginia, bringing with them an inspired sound and fun energy. Having played together for barely a year, members Philip Basnight and Colin Cross have recorded and released two stellar EPs, The Luxury of Time Pts. I & II, fusing their different creative spirits into a wondrous collaboration. Broke Royals are fresh and they're similar to the best parts of Bastille, but with an acoustic bent and heartstring-tugging lyrics. They're on the rise in the region: they opened for UK band Life in Film last week. You can catch this dynamic pairing live at the Tropicalia, 9/18, playing second between Skyline Hotel and Bencoolen. Doors at 7, $10, and a great time is assured. -Jonathan Goodwin

Need a new track that you can play on repeat and just let loose? Baltimore's own Bosley has you covered with his new single Are We In Love? A funky, soulful track, it lulls you in with dulcet tones and holds you down with a rich chorus and wonderful instrumentals. It’s a dance beat, it’s great for relaxation, it’s perfect for a montage, it can get you through the day. Check it out when Bosley plays at The Black Cat on 9/3. $10 backstage, doors at 7:30. -Jonathan Goodwin

Indie hard rockers The Milestones played DC9, 8/26, with more shows and an EP to come

Looking for new, versatile jam that makes you jump, dance, and lose your mind? Try on indie hard rock band The Milestones for size; it’s a good fit. They’re a brash and fun quartet from Baltimore with a distinct and diverse sound all their own and their live performances are unmissable.

Their performance at DC9 on 8/26 did not give this writer’s eardrums a break and infected the audience with an energy that didn’t quit, even after the band started tearing down their kit. Their set featured excellent guitar fades and mind-blowing drum solos. These guys know how to interact with the audience given their fun banter and focused showmanship, so make sure to catch them live or miss an experience worth remembering. They have an EP, Honey, coming out later this summer and some shows in NYC this weekend. Leftfield, 8/29 at 8pm and D’Herde East, 8/30 at 2pm. -Jonathan Goodwin

Indie quartet Life in Film rocked the Rock & Roll Hotel, 8/25, and continues headlining US tour

From across the pond comes one of the hardest working indie bands today. Founded in 2012, Life in Film is at the halfway point of their first headlining tour of the US. They just finished opening on the Wombats tour a couple months ago, but they’re back at it again, reaching out to new audiences and sharing their artistry with us Yanks. They also put out their debut album Get Closer in April and have more stuff in the works for a sophomore release.

I watched their performance Tuesday, 8/25, at the Rock & Roll Hotel, their first-ever show in DC and I was wowed from start to finish. I spoke briefly with frontman Samuel Fry before the show, who revealed the band all works together to produce their music and that his favorite part of playing live is the unpredictability, giving new life to songs that had only been written and recorded. While at the show, I certainly found new life in songs I had only heard on Spotify. Literally everyone in the crowded space was jamming to the music, dancing and bopping heads to the rich beats. The thick bass shook my beer bottle and the lefty lead guitarist rocked his glasses right off his face. Life in Film has a sound all its own, not derivative in the slightest. Their stage presence was simple and engaging in its appeal, avoiding unnecessary flash and hitting the essentials for a good time. Catch them at their remaining US shows or miss out on a fantastic experience. -Jonathan Goodwin

Electro-pop duo Smoke Season to grace The Black Cat, 8/27, with infectious dance beats

Need good music for your insatiable dance fix? Look no further than Smoke Season, a Hollywood-based duo specializing in upbeat club grooves and catchy rhythms that cling to the brain like honey to a child’s fingers. Sultry vocals and well-coordinated synthesizers make up the core of their sound, but don’t expect a typical nightclub act; Smoke Season is top-notch. Catch them tonight with King Raam at The Black Cat for only $15, doors at 7:30. -Jonathan Goodwin
