Last week, we joined Petworth at the DC9 on 9th St in Washington, DC. Petworth is a relatively young band with their new bassist joining them just months ago. The Washington City Paper gave a great description of them after catching their show at the Black Cat in September of '08:
“Garafalo,” a tune about the alterna-it-girl of yesteryear that also recalls the alternarock of yesteryear. A stuttery guitar intro gives way to easygoing jangly twee-pop, complete with chorus pedal and barely comprehensible moaning.
We got the chance to sit down with the band before the show and snag an interview for our Music Monday series. They are an interesting group, with two members working for non-profits and the third in school. "Slow burn" is how they describe their writing style, evolving songs over months and years.
