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.

Q&A with Bonjour, Ganesh!

Q&A with Bonjour, Ganesh!

Say hello to Bonjour, Ganesh!, a young local band that mixes the fun with the fanciful. The group features everything from horns and brass to rip roaring vocals in a blend of rock, ska, jazz and pop. Always optimistic, their music has the ability to transform the ordinary into something special and unexpected. Guitarist and singer, Adam Rosenberg, answers some of our questions with highlights and quotes from other Bonjour, Ganesh! band members.

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.

A Lasting Storm

A Lasting Storm

Everyone has problems – regrets they must overcome, fears that will not rest, and addictions they cannot escape. For DC artist Justin Jones and the revolving cast of musicians who make up The Driving Rain, those problems are not burdens to be conquered, but rather stories to be shared. Framed by Jones’ truly unique voice and styling on the guitar, coupled with The Driving Rain’s impressive instrumentals, the band successfully blends together country, folk and pop. I caught the first of their two back-to-back performances on April 17th at the Rock and Roll Hotel, during which the band showcased a selection of songs from their latest album “….and i am the song of the drunkards”, as well as pieces from earlier recordings. By the end of the show, Jones had reaffirmed himself as a talented storyteller, weaving his triumphs and sorrows into a compelling soundtrack rooted in human connections.
