The Points @ Velvet Lounge

Went to the Velvet Lounge tonight and saw a couple of bands.

Two acts played before I got there, the first band I saw was The Lobsters. I'm guessing they're not from DC 'cause they were giving shout outs to JMU and Harrisonburg. They weren't bad as far as live music goes and seemed to draw a decent sized crowd, maybe 40-50 people total.

The second band was the one I came to see, the Points. One of my buddies from college (Dr. Mayhem) plays with them sometimes and tonight was one of those nights. This was the second time I've seen the Points and they were pretty tight.

I'm trying to help another buddy of mine in the band Guajiro get booked somewhere in DC in the last week of October or first week in November. They're an interesting band from the Miami area playing a mix of punk and power pop (think Dag Nasty or the Pixies) in both English and Spanish. If you have some hookups that you would like to share, leave me a comment or e-mail me.
