After more than half a decade of shows and two full-length records, D.C.-via-Fredericksburg, Va., indie-pop quartet Pash is splitting up. The band will perform one last show tonight—-it was supposed to happen a few weeks ago, but was rescheduled due to the snowstorm—-at the Black Cat before the members head their separate ways. Some will go on to other bands (bassist Ryan McLaughlin will continue on in Typefighter) while others are calling it quits on the Mid-Atlantic entirely (singer Merideth Munoz will relocate to Austin). Seven-and-a-half years is a pretty long and full life for a band—-plenty of time to traipse about the country, play dingy basements, and memorize the Waffle House menu. But it’s still hard to say goodbye. When Pash is gone, D.C.’s music scene will be a little less cute, a tad less friendly, and way less likely to make out to fuzzy pop songs.
Say goodbye tonight and then check back tomorrow when Munoz tells Arts Desk about calling it quits.
