Every summer the Woodrow Wilson Plaza outside the Ronald Reagan Building in downtown Washington, D.C. hosts a summer concert series. Since I can easily go to these concerts from where I work, I am going to attempt to review as many as the acts I see, as possible. Today was a band called, Sub-Radio Standard.
I only got to hear a few songs from the end of their set, but what I heard from the group, wasn’t that bad. Six college-aged guys make up this band from Virginia. Their originals lean on the end of Emo-rock and by their appearance and style of music and singing that’s probably the genre I would place them in. In addition to recording their own material they can also masquerade as a cover band that plays covers that range from Weezer to Young The Giant to Panic! At The Disco. If attending a Sub-Radio Standard show, you can expect a rousing amount of sound from this group of high-energy, aspiring rockers.
Sub-Radio Standard is currently playing a bevel of third-tier venues in addition to today’s concert, such as the Arlington County Fair and Jammin’ Java.
