When One Door Closes

When One Door Closes

Joe’s Record Paradise is a local music institution that has been fulfilling the music needs of DC audiophiles since 1974. Previously located in Rockville, MD, and now in Silver Spring, the store houses an extraordinary collection of vinyl. When word spread that the store was moving to Silver Spring, patrons of the store wondered if more about the store would change than just its zip code.

It’s All a Matter Of Perspective

It’s All a Matter Of Perspective

Some bands are inspired by Dylan or Morrissey, or sunsets or baby smiles, or whatever. But this is a different story–a story of a band that is inspired by the likes of Carl Sagan and Richard Dawkins. They’re three friends who’ve known each other for almost 15 years and they call themselves The Very Small.

Gist, a three-piece rock band from Arlington, VA, has been performing for the last 10 years and has weathered the changing musical landscape. Together, this triumvirate consisting of Nayan Bhula (guitar and vocals); Fred Burton (drums and percussion); and Finley Martin (bass) are keeping DCs alt-rock traditions alive and well today.

A Neon Rush to the Head

A Neon Rush to the Head

Inspiration is everywhere.It’s in the sheer determination of our winter Olympians (U.S.A!); it’s in the hearts of our neighbors who lend a hand to those crossing icy streets or digging out snow-buried cars; it’s in the talents of our musicians and artists that keep us smiling or dancing when the weather outside is frightful. Recently, I was inspired by the young, yet incredibly talented musicians of The Neon Rush–a rock band that exudes promise and makes me kick myself for quitting those piano lessons in high school.
