Hometown Sounds: Time is Fire
9/24/2018

Loading the player...

Time is Fire is a band rooted in Washington DC's punk scene but reaching out to embrace rhythms from across the world. The five-member group summons a kaleidoscopic sound that knows no borders-- a sonic blast of radio distortion from a country that doesn't exist.  Fronted by an Iranian-born Sufi poet and backed by players steeped in punk, dance and experimental music, Time is Fire mixes pan-cultural rhythms, floor-shaking funk grooves and acid-laced guitar leads into a mind-expanding geopolitical dance party.

Tonight’s performance is part of a monthly local music series featuring D.C. musicians, created in partnership with D.C.-based podcast and website Hometown Sounds. Hometown Sounds makes it easy and fun to hear the best D.C. music of all genres and styles. Programming details to be announced at a later date.
