Elena & Los Fulanos

From the event description:

Elena & Los Fulanos is a bilingual folk rock band based in Washington, DC. Since 2011, they have been creating music that ranges from twangy, heartbreak-themed folk Americana to soothing, introspective, violin-infused Latin rock. Influenced by front-woman Elena Lacayo’s experience growing up in two cultures (Nicaraguan and American), Elena & Los Fulanos creates a world where language and tradition meld with catchy melodies and inventive chords to enhance appreciation for diversity in an increasingly multicultural world. Their debut album, "Miel Venenosa," earned a Washington Area Music Association (WAMMIE) nomination for Best Latin Recording in 2014 and their second album "Volcán" (2017) has been hailed as "a bilingual folk album for the resistance" by the Washington City Paper.

Feeder

From the event description:

Feeder was formed in Camden after moving from Newport/Chepstow in South Wales in 1992, under the moniker Real — comprising front-man, vocalist and guitarist Grant Nicholas; drummer Jon Lee; and bassist Julian Smith. Feeder have released nine studio albums, three compilations, 41 EP’s and singles, spending a combined total of 181 weeks on the singles and albums charts and accumulating 25 top 75 singles between 1997 and 2012. In 2016, after some sort of hiatus, Feeder returned with their ninth studio album, "All Bright Electric," a record that received huge praise. Produced by Grant Nicholas and Tim Roe and mixed by Chris Sheldon, Classic Rock hailed it as “Feeder’s most satisfying album to date” whilst Kerrang suggested the band had “reconnected” and “rediscovered their drive, their darkness and their sense of self-discovery.” The album generated three singles — "Universe Of Life," "Eskimo" and "Another Day On Earth," the latter a double A side with Paperweight — and brings us right up to date. By which we mean to say that, concurrently, Feeder are in the finest of form — Grant reveals that the "All Bright Electric" sessions were as “exciting as making our first album, Polythene” — and the XX-track "The Best Of" is a perfect way to take stock and gawp. 

When: Friday, May 10, 9 p.m.- Saturday, May 11, 12 a.m.
Where: Rock & Roll Hotel, 1353 H St. NE
Admission: $25
