Tuesday night Irish rock band The Strypes played their first gig in Washington, D.C. at the 9:30 Club. They rocked the house with their fast-paced and dynamic show. Their recent appearance on the David Letterman show, a feature story in Rolling Stone, and Elton John signing them to his management company Rocket Music, testifies to this cool young band’s talent. I have a special affection for The Strypes as they hail from County Cavan, Ireland, where my grandfather was born and where I spend my summers. If you’re in New York catch their gig at The Music Hall of Williamsburg on August 23 before they return to London to record their second album.
