Massive Attack at the 9:30 Club
Last night, I went down the the 9:30 Club for a soldout show by British band Massive Attack. I've been a fan of theirs since the 90's. They are the quintessential trip-hop band. They played a lot of their hits from all their records. Despite the absence of Daddy G, 3D did most of the singing duties.
They also had along singers Elizabeth Fraser (Cocteau Twins) and reggae great Horace Andy. The music was entrancing, with the Dub bass sounds pounding all over the club. It was a pretty diverse audience, too, due to the show being in DC with people clearly from the UK, Spain, Russia, and other countries. I was really glad to have seen to band for the first time.
