Eight Gigs: Epsilona
Tue., Feb. 9, 9:30 p.m., Dive Bar, no cover
Epsilona formed in 2013 and has since been enjoying local success with its unique style, described as an artful blend of indie, psychedelic and soul. The reedy, forlorn guitar hooks overlay distinct, direct bass lines and drum beats adorned with a jazzy flare, creating a sound that is reminiscent of the experimental, mellow indie rock of the ’90s. This week Epsilona is having a free show to celebrate bassist Cory Phillips’ birthday and has promised to roll out some new songs and covers. 1016 K Street, www.epsilonamusic.com.
