Second Star to the Right and Straight on till Morning

Second Star to the Right and Straight on till Morning

Once upon a time there was a young boy who couldn’t and wouldn’t grow old, because to grow old meant you had to one day die. Who wants to do that when you can learn to fly, lead a group of misfits or fight a pirate with a hook for a hand? Everyone knows the story. Peter Pan marks a special place for folks, both young and old. Now imagine being a part of it–a part of Neverland, a part of the Lost Boys, a part of the legend. This is exactly what child actor Bobby Driscoll was–he was Peter Pan–at least in movie form. Bobby was the voice and the live action model for Peter in Disney’s 1953 animated version of the classic tale. Bobby’s story is the main inspiration for DC artist Benjy Ferree’s new album, “Come Back to the Five and Dime Bobby Dee Bobby Dee.”

Sight That Should Not Go Un-Scene

Sight That Should Not Go Un-Scene

The Deleted Scenes show on May 21st returned me to one of my favorite venues in DC, the Black Cat. It had been months since I had seen a show there and the memory of stale beer and moody wall coverings were starting to fade. Getting there early I ordered a Guinness and listened to the line up of bands complete their sound check. It was hours before the show would start, but I could already tell it was going to be killer.

Club Scout, On The Rise

Club Scout, On The Rise

Making their way back into the DC-music scene is Club Scout. After some down time following their initial formation in 2007 and some line-up changes, Club Scout is back and already headlining shows, such as the one I saw at DC9 with opening bands, Winter Gloves and A Born Idler, where I was also able to catch up with these guys for an interview.

You Can Have Your Cake (and Kisses) and Eat It Too

You Can Have Your Cake (and Kisses) and Eat It Too

Turns out you can have your cake (and kisses) and eat it too. District of Sound supports what Cake and Kisses organizers do every month, so much so that we had to go back and cover the party so readers could take another look into one of the best-loved underground DC-Maryland-Virginia (DMV) hip-hop parties in Northwest. The first Thursday of every month, the devoted core of DMV hip-hop fans gather at one of the few remaining dives on Adam Morgan’s 18th street strip, Asylum.

If the Hotel’s a Rockin’…

If the Hotel’s a Rockin’…

If you love DC music as much as we do at District of Sound (and I’m guessing you do because you’re reading this) and you attended last Saturday’s show at the Rock and Roll Hotel featuring Junior League Band, Once Okay Twice and DeVille, we’re sure you’ll agree that our shared love isn’t all for nothing. District of Sound hosted its spring 2009 show on May 2 at the Rock and Roll Hotel to benefit The Children’s Inn at NIH and to highlight three exceptional DC bands. The concert proved to be a memorable evening complete with great music, fun giveaways, $1 Pabst Blue Ribbons, and a chance to get close and personal with each band.
