Dax is a Canadian rapper who has recently gained a lot of attention from his tracks on Youtube. He was once a college basketball player who eventually found a love for poetry. This passion for poetry turned into a career in the entertainment industry, and he currently has more than 2.3 million subscribers on YouTube after releasing some incredibly well directed videos with very impressive lyricism.
His most recent video, titled “BLACK LIVES MATTER,” starts with the quote, “Remember when we were kids and didn’t see color?” This brings an introductory thought of inequality, and makes the listener immediately consider all of the injustices in our world. The video goes on and Dax shows just how talented he is with his lyricisms as he states:
“Let’s come together cops, citizens, and in between
and rally for the rights of everybody in humanity.
Black, blue, white, green, playing for the seam the team
I’m not MLK but boy that doesn’t mean I Can’t dream.”

When D.C. venues were ready to reopen after COVID-19, indie pop duo GLOSSER was ready to perform. The two, Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, formed the band pre-COVID out of a shared aesthetic vision and passion for music storytelling.
Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.
The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
