Monday night, there was a line like I’d never seen wrapped around The Echo to see Colombian-born and Virginia-bred singer Kali Uchis. Playing to a mostly younger crowd — which undoubtedly played perfectly into the hands of her 9 p.m. start time — Kali Uchis proved to be quite a performer with a large following […]

I didn’t know very much about Ben Howard going into his show last Monday at the El Rey Theatre. I’d taken a quick listen to his latest album I Forget Where We Were and saw how quickly tickets were gobbled up to his one of two U.S. shows this month and was very intrigued. What […]
