Tropacalia DC presents Grand Tapestry w/Silo Mentality and Ebad
Tropicalia – Rap has gone global but there's still very few instances where the realms of rap and world music meet. Marrying hip-hop with classical Indian music, the newly formed group Grand Tapestry, bridges that gap. Featuring Eligh, an independent hip-hop artist known for genre experimentation, Alam Khan on the 25-stringed fretless instrument called the sarode, and Salar Nader on the Indian drum known as the tabla. Alam is the son of the late legendary Maestro Ali Akbar Khan. Ali Akbar Khan was known as the greatest Sarode player of modern times, and is responsible for bringing Indian music to the west. Salar is a disciple of Tabla Master Zakir Hussain. Eligh, an independent rapper and producer, from Los Angeles, is touted for his style, content and love for the abstract. These three artists came together to create an epic tapestry of sound; 16 songs of cinematic beauty. Listen with your eyes closed, mind open, and find yourself in a wondrous state.

Songbyrd Music House & Record Cafe – ON SALE NOW! -- Songbyrd Presents WYLAND with Broke Royals and Luke James Shaffer Thursday January 18, 2018 D: 7:00 // S: 8:00 PM -- Wyland are a four-piece alternative rock band based in a small town outside of the Meadowlands. Their sound, which has elements of atmospheric rock and indie singer-songwriter influence, has received praise for being “Coldplay-esque” and “intense and tasteful melodic rock [that] will resonate with the most endearing Lumineer fan.” CMJ said, “Wyland has an instantly digestible sound". In 2015, the band released a couple demos which eventually led them to appear alongside bands like Mumford & Sons, Alabama Shakes, and the Vaccines, to name a few. Their latest EP, In a Sea of Things Unsaid, which was released at the beginning of 2016, was received as “one of the strongest releases from a New Jersey band in 2016” by NJ.com. The album was also praised as one of the best of 2016 by publications like Clash Magazine and NKD Magazine. “Without You,” the first single from In a Sea of Things Unsaid went viral in the first month of its release with over 150k streams on Spotify. The song was also chosen as the grand prize winner in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, for which the band received over 8k dollars in prizes and an opportunity to record a song live on the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus. Wyland is Ryan Sloan (vocals/guitar/piano), Patrick Viso (guitar), Zach Calidonna (bass) and Chris Luna (drums).

Ezra Mae and the Gypsy Moon / mirrorsigns / Kings of Marigold
Songbyrd Music House & Record Cafe – ON SALE NOW! -- Songbyrd Presents Ezra Mae and the Gypsy-Moon with mirrorsigns and The Kings of Marigold Friday January 19, 2018 D: 7:00 // S: 8:00 PM -- "Perfect for a smoky, haze-filled cocktail lounge, Ezra Mae and The Gypsy Moon have an excellently refined grasp on backroom blues, with a touch of garage lo-fi for flavor. A rare treat, this DC-based foursome has good stage presence and the sort of sultry vocals that induce deep trances of wistfulness.. " -Jonathan Goodwin, The Deli Magazine "It all began 10 years ago when Ezra Mae, a songstress with a mind of her own, met The Gypsy Moon, a bag-carrying whirl of mystic energy. These souls came together and the rest is history. Along the journey they’ve picked up hitch-hikers and friends, music-makers disguised as men. As they vibe, their core mission is the creation of a new wave of soulful psychedelic rock. Ezra Mae and The Gypsy Moon started seducing audiences with their sultry rhythmic sounds in basements of houses in Washington, D.C. in early 2013, entrancing audiences with their smoky-style and sweet yet soulful energy. Their music is a mixture of good ol’ rock ‘n roll, with a touch of rhythm and blues to keep you in the mood, as they coast across into surf-style grooves, some garage to keep it raw, and a peek-a-boo of psychedelic undertones to move your bones. On stage is where you want to see them, flaunting a mod-vintage, bohemian, floral explosion. They exude an energy that will get you on your feet, grooving next to someone you’ve wanted to meet. In 2014-15, the band completed a residency at The Pinch is D.C., playing in and curating shows for over a year. They’ve performed at DC9, Velvet Lounge, and In It Together Fest, to name a few." - Laylaa Randera In the summer of 2017, Ezra Mae and the Gypsy Moon released their debut album Valleys in the Dust. Two songs from the album, Summer Skies and Valleys in the Dust, was featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, Here and Now, and All Things Considered.

All Good presents BoomBox w. Of Tomorrow
9:30 Club – BoomBox - Western Voodoo Tour Friday, January 19, 2018 with Of Tomorrow #BoomBox930 Tickets on sale now! > https://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1606818?utm_medium=bks A little house, a little blues, a little funk, a little rock, and a whole lot of soul blast through BoomBox. Since first emerging in 2004, founder, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Zion Rock Godchaux has been quietly seasoning this simmering recipe to perfection. However, it reaches a boiling point on his forthcoming 2018 fifth album, Western Voodoo [Heart of Gold Records]. At the same time, the Muscle Shoals, AL native stays true to what attracted countless fans in the first place. “I remain open to anything you would hear coming out of a boombox,” he explains. “There are a lot of different vibes and angles, but it still adheres to a universal rhythm. This new record is the most musical and varied, yet it’s tightly wound in respect to that syncopation. There are only a few rules. It should be heavy groove. It should make you want to move. Overall, I’ve further developed the sound people are used to.” Following up 2016’s fan favorite Bits & Pieces, the artist found himself at something of a crossroads. Longtime collaborator Russ Randolph amicably parted ways with the band at the end of the year. For the first time, Godchaux would solely produce the bulk of a BoomBox record by himself inside of his new studio, while DJ Harry joined on tour in January 2017. Another first, he even performed live bass on the album, opening up the creative palette dramatically. “I’ve learned more about engineering and the technical aspects of recording. It’s been a time of soul searching. I can follow any Ideas that I want to. So there’s a lot more organic instrumentation. I’m just trying to develop more sonic real.” Appropriately, he dubs the sound of Western Voodoo, “Dirty Disco Blues.” Within that realm, Godchaux fuses a funky strut with electronic energy and danceable swagger powerful enough to cast a spell of its own. “You hear about different forms of magic around the world,” he goes on. “The West, in general, has its own voodoo influenced by the blues. That’s what shaped me as a musician growing up in this country. It’s hard to put in the words, but you know it when you hear it.” You hear it in everything that BoomBox has done thus far. Over the course of four albums, the group has become a streaming favorite with numerous tracks cracking a million plays on Spotify. Moreover, they’ve made audiences groove everywhere from Electric Forest and Hangout Music Festival to High Sierra Music Festival. To welcome DJ Harry into the fold, they performed 75 shows in 2017, with that number expected to grow in 2018. “Harry picked up everything in a really short amount of time,” he explains. “The parties are just as hot, if not hotter. The music is getting tighter. He stepped in and kept the plane in the air.” In the end, the new music kicks off the brightest and boldest chapter yet for Godchaux. “Our best side is somewhat medicinal,” he leaves off. “All of the rhythms, melodies, and frequencies add up to these healing properties. I hope people feel rejuvenated and re-focused on some level when they hear us. That’s Western Voodoo.”
