Neumos Capitol Hill

Industrial Revelation are a band best seen and heard on the stage, which is why it’s great news that their first big show of the year is happening at Neumos. For years, IR—which is D'Vonne Lewis (drums), Evan Flory-Barnes (bass), Josh Rawlings (keyboards), and Ahamefule J. Oluo (trumpet)—have played primarily at local jazz venues like Tula’s and Royal Room and established a considerable following within the jazz community. But the quartet, which won the 2014 Stranger Genius Award in music, wants to break through the confines of this community and make and play music for a much wider (and of course younger) audience. The show at Neumos will certainly help them achieve this goal. Jazz has a future. CHARLES MUDEDE
