“I’ve been doing this for half my years,” Jeff Rosenstock sings in his newest album, WORRY. The song, “Pash Rash,” is about intimacy, shame, self-respect, and, perhaps, Rosenstock’s music career. His latest release reflects that experience, with elements of pop punk, indie, emo, hardcore, and ska accompanying poetic and vulnerable lyrics. Rosenstock continues to sing about alienation, antipathy, and anxiety, of course, as his cultish fan base has come to love and expect. But WORRY also breaks new ground. It’s the most political of any album he’s put out, touching on police brutality, Silicon Valley, and inequality of all kinds. It also features a heavy focus on romantic love, albeit in Rosenstock-ian style. Read more >>> Jeff Rosenstock performs with Hard Girls and Katie Ellen at 7:30 p.m. at DC9, 1940 9th St. NW. $13–$15.
