Friends of Pluto

Friends of Pluto is one of DC's hottest cover bands, bringing you tunes that span the past five decades with a strong focus on the very best rock n roll of the 90s and 2000s — along with a few indie gems guaranteed to get your pulse pumping and feet moving.

Originally formed as part of the 7DrumCity Flashband series, Friends of Pluto has made a name for itself with high-energy live shows and a unique setlist that never fails to have the audience singing along with classic hits (and some songs you love, but may have forgotten about).

Smokin' on Planes

Washington DC’s Smokin on Planes write explosive alternative rock songs that oscillate between power pop and grunge. Imagine the confectionary energy of The Go-Go’s played through J Mascis’s guitar amp.

Their sound is inspired by the post-hardcore, alternative/college rock of the 80s in terms of its rawness. It deliberately eschews synths in favor of electric guitars and explosive drumming. What emerges are punk rock ear worms powered by raucous guitars, strong melodies, and lyrics fixed on making sense of the past. Audiences learn the words and dance hard at their live shows to one of the best bar bands out there playing original music.

“Smokin on Planes has demonstrated its ability to both set and deliver on high expectations, and they’re just getting started.” -Cynthia Gross, Alchemical Records
