Night Moves at DC9
Minnesota-based band Night Moves is going to be in Washington, DC on April 24.
For the first time in 2 years, scruffy haired Midwesterners John Pelant and Micky Alfano (the co-founders of Night Moves) will be back in the district (this time joined by Jared Isabella, Aaron Baum and Charles Murlowski) to present their brilliant new album live at DC9. The recently released album, titled Pennied Days, is an existential journey through space and time that will surely only be more incredible live on stage.
Wherever you are from, Night Moves will remind you of home. This is especially true in my case because John Pelant and Micky Alfano were just across the river from my residence, in St. Paul, skateboarding and attending Southwest High School at the same time I was frequenting shows by bands like theirs in unfamiliar basements. This long-anticipated album will blow you away with its twangy nostalgic sounds and intellectual lyrics. At only $10, this show is not to be missed.
The cover art alone speaks to the dreamy escape that is Pennied Days. From "Carl Sagan" to the end of the album, each track is a new destination that feels familiar. Reminiscent of fellow Minnesotan Bob Dylan, Pennied Days evokes a 1970's feel with meaningful lyrics that resonate with catchy hooks from Pelant.
Now available wherever you get your music, you should listen to this album yesterday.
