For the past two years, Nico Janssen, Enrique Dominquez, Andrew Mina, and Rich Seymour have been honing their musical skills around D.C. as Bleach Bones. The quartet’s upbeat post-rock is angular and spacious—at times even bluesy—with longer, smoother melodies bridging the gaps. Its sound—a bit funky, a bit dancey, and even a bit classic rock—has finally been recorded for an album. The Aid To Navigation EP is Bleach Bones’ first official release. Originally released in November, the quartet will finally celebrate their accomplishment at DC9.

Red Apron Burger Bar is now open in Dupont Circle serving Virginia beef patties.
