DsCene: Walk the Moon show!

"How much does the paint cost?" asked various people at DC9 last night.

"Cost?" replied Nic Petricca, the lead singer of Walk the Moon. "It's free of course!"

Many attendants at their show last night adorned their faces with the multiple paint options provided by Walk the Moon (a-la their music video for "Anna Sun"). This act sums up Walk the Moon ... a band that just wants their audience to have a good time and express themselves however they see fit.

The four-member band hails from Cincinnati, Ohio. They have released two full-length albums. They have a fun pop-rock sound that gets the entire crowd dancing. And I really mean the ENTIRE crowd. Old-time favorites such as "I want! I want" and "Jenny" were played as well as new songs (including a nameless one. They're taking suggestions if you're interested).

The band was just featured on "Last Call with Carson Daly." They also played at South by Southwest back in March. Basically these guys are doing lots of good work! And don't worry DC, they're coming back for the Sweet Life Festival in early May along with Girl Talk, the Strokes, Lupe Fiasco, the Cold War Kids and many others.
