Based in both Boston and D.C., alt-country sextet Kingsley Flood has cultivated a fanbase up and down the East Coast. That support got the group named Boston’s best live band by the Boston Herald and earned it a spot opening the Newport Folk Festival’s main stage. But this year, Kingsley Flood is offering fans an opportunity to see the band offstage, too. Through a campaign on PledgeMusic, fans can follow Kingsley Flood with behind-the-scenes videos, live tracks, and the option to weigh in on questions like which song the group should cover next. The band ventured into western Massachusetts and New Hampshire to write its upcoming release, giving it an intimate, woodsy affect. But Kingsley Flood will be back at full energy when it kicks off 2015 at the Rock & Roll Hotel with local indie-rock favorites Fellow Creatures and Humble Fire. Kingsley Flood performs with Fellow Creatures and Humble Fire at 8 p.m. at Rock & Roll Hotel, 1353 H St. NE. $13–$15. (202) 388-7625. rockandrollhotel.com.
