Melt at Black Cat

Go check out Melt this week at Black Cat in Washington DC! This group of friends from New York City was brought together by a common love of music, then separated when it came time to disperse to various colleges around the Northeast. Now, they reunite on weekends to play high-energy shows for their adoring, label-defying fan base. Marked by dancing, funky horns, and jam sections that lead into catchy hooks, it’s not hard to see why their shows draw such huge crowds. Make sure to go this week so you can see what Melt is all about!
