Poll: Double dipping in concert - who is worthy of a two-night stand?

By David Malitz

In addition to the overflowing options at underground venues, January also presents D.C. concertgoers with plenty of shows at the usual haunts. And a handful of the artists that are visiting will also be making overnight plans in D.C. The Dismemberment Plan, Dr. Dog, Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt, Roy Ayers -- all will be playing multi-night stands this month. Go out a few weeks more and you can add Girl Talk, Chromeo and Drive-By Truckers to that list.

This begs the question -- which of these acts will be worth seeing twice? As evidenced by this breakdown of Spoon's two nights at 9:30 back in March, we like it when bands let us get statistical. Drive-By Truckers certainly have the discography depth to play two very different shows. But is Dr. Dog really going to switch things up too much from night to night? This will be your last chance to see the Dismemberment Plan, so does that mean you hit up every show?

Vote for the band you'd be most likely to see on consecutive nights in our poll below, and tell us your ideal two-night-stand band in the comments.

If I have to choose one, Dr. John. (Maybe Lou Reed. It's tough to choose just one.)

Of the acts, DBT would probably mix up the setlist of the most and Roy Ayers would probably be most interesting to hear play the same material twice.

Of the four acts on the list I've seen, I'm only going to see D Plan again, and only for 1 night. Any more than that seems a bit greedy. How many times does one need to dance on stage to Ice of Boston?
