The essential Unrest mixtape

By David Malitz

Yes, Unrest was one of the best indie bands to come out of D.C. in the '90s. But there's no need to qualify that statement with a hometown. The oddball-pop trio's hyper-strummed, hyper-melodic songs were simply among the best the decade had to offer. Unrest was the flagship band for Arlington, Va.-based Teenbeat Records and is reuniting to headline the label's 26th anniversary celebration Saturday night at the Black Cat, which also features performances from yesteryear bands Versus and the Rondelles. To mark the occasion, we've assembled a mixtape of 10 essential Unrest tunes.

"Cath Carroll"




"Can’t Sit Still"

"Yes, She Is My Skinhead Girl"

"Cherry Cream On"

"Teenage Suicide"

"So Sick"
