Two of our DC favorites, Imperial China and Caverns, are playing a show with True Womanhood tomorrow night at the Black Cat Backstage. And it seems DC is starting to pay attention, with this DCist Three Stars interview feature.

To whet your whistle, here’s a slew of A.S. exclusive downloads, “Radhus”(an old fan-favorite) off Imperial China’s Methods: EP and a few older ones from Caverns:

While you are listening, read our interview with Kevin from Caverns, our review of Imperial China’s EP, our live review of their show at the now-defunct Lo-Fi…or just check out all of our previous coverage on Caverns or Imperial China.

Caverns are working on their first full-length album, Silk Scorpion. You can check out the progress on their blog. They will be heading into the studio over Labor Day to throw down some new tracks for you, dear listener.

Imperial China are busy honing their live show, shopping up some new material and making daytrips up to Baltimore to check out all the cool shit we have going on.

    Caverns Rocks Hard

  3. Been listening alot to some of my past recordings of Imperial China…while I hear lots of stuff in their music, the one thing that keeps coming to mind is how much they sound like King Crimson from the ’80s (that’s a compliment, I’d think).
