TVD Recommends | KICKS! A Night of Rock & Roll, Punk & Power Pop at the Black Cat, Friday, 5/14

Kicks' roots go back to POW WOW, which started out as a Rock n' Roll Party held every Wednesday (and a few Thursdays) night at Felix / Spy Lounge in Adams Morgan. Adam, Sara, and Kim DJ'd. Joe tended bar. People got drunk...and it was magical. Pow Wow then appeared monthly at the Rock and Roll Hotel.

Now, KICKS! is found monthly at the Black Cat Backstage. It's free. It rules. Kim and Sara, who are not sisters - thanks for mentioning the resemblance though - co-pilot the rock and roll party; Adam continues to inspires us from the West Coast.

KICKS! is a big old mess of garage rock, psych, 70s punk, powerpop, bubblegum, beat, shoegaze, the occasional classic rock or metal track, and whatever else we feel like playing through a Jameson haze. Like a phoenix from the ashes or a zombie from the dirt, Pow Wow has reared its ugly head again in the form of a podcast run by Adam, straight outta LA.

This month's KICKS! is Friday, May 14. We hope to see some new faces. Check out the podcast below for a sampling of some of the tracks you'll hear!

Thee Oh Sees - I Was Denied | Scientists - Last Night | Dum Dum Girls - Jail La La | Shocking Blue - Send Me a Postcard | Dead Boys - I Won’t Look Back
