There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.

A few of the things we’re listening to this week, in no particular order:

The Dillinger Escape Plan

With Mike Patton

Epitaph

The first three tracks sound like System of a Down getting baked and improvising a soundtrack to a Scorpion King DVD stuck on Fast Forward. But “Come to Daddy” is something else entirely: Nine Inch Nails with brain implants and a shit-eating grin.—Andrew Beaujon
