Resurfacing after almost a decade, David Berman shocked the public with his return of four new singles, and a completely different band Purple Mountains. It was surprising after the dismantle of Silver Jews, that Berman didn’t return right away for a solo career, however he’s back with a new sound that all his fans will enjoy. Stricken with loss and self-reflection his music narrates the disintegration of friends, family, and fans that were once dear to him. His sensitivity throughout All My Happiness is Gone, may scare his fans due to the dramatic interpretations of addiction and suicide, but it examines his growth as an artist almost a decade later. His psychedelic approach to each song is gaudy and overdramatized but in a sense that’s what makes it beautiful. There is no perfect song, which ultimately circles back to his reality. Show at 7:30 p.m. Tickets $25. Black Cat: 1811 14th St. NW, DC; www.blackcatdc.com
