J.T. Rocks D.C. 

" ... this is Timberlake now, at 25: A scruffy-faced, foul-mouthed, beer-swilling, pelvis-thrusting blue-eyed soul man who sings sexualized, sophisticated pop songs, wears sleek retro suits with skinny ties and is, at the moment, touring smallish rock clubs where he's generally blowing away more mature audiences who more or less consider him to be the epitome of contemporary-pop cool. Which he totally is -- in my expert, adult opinion."

The adult opinion is that of the Washington Post music writer who caught — and loved — J.T.'s D.C. show at the 9:30 Club. Check it out here. To compare to Flyer music critic Chris Herrington's take on Timberlake's performance last week at the New Daisy, go here.
