Eskimo Bands Showcase @ Jammin Java

Jan 30, 7 PM

Jammin Java, 221 Maple Ave E, Vienna, VA 22180

TICKETS

On Thursday, January 30th, Eskimo Bands DC will be throwing its second showcase, “Best of the DMV,” at Jammin Java in Vienna, Va. The newly formed collective is a self-proclaimed “gang for musicians, by musicians” seeking to bring artists under one banner for collective bargaining, community building, and the opportunity to play prime venues around the city.

“We got invited to share a bill at the Baltimore Soundstage, which we had no business being a part of since we had no fans, but after hearing how we sounded on a real stage all I could think about was, ‘How can we do that again?’ and Eskimo Bands DC was created in part as an answer to that question; both for us and for other bands with modest followings looking to get their foot in the door at venues.”

– Michael McDermott

The concert will feature six bands of varying genres and start at 7 PM. When asked what someone can expect from a night at an Eskimo Bands D.C. concert, McDermott replied, “From a music goers perspective, if everything goes right, it should feel like the party you’ve always wanted to be invited to – great live music, great  food and beer at Jammin Java, lots of familiar faces, and a bunch of musicians hanging out and chopping it up while they are not on stage.”

While locked down—along with the rest of us—the singer-songwriter opened up virtual photo albums to recall trips to domestic cities and foreign lands to which she brought her unique music-set poetry.

“I was going through my photos online and I got this case of FOMO—envy for this person who has traveled all over the world,” Williams said recently, “and I was like ‘oh, my god, it’s me!’
Now I’m telling myself [to] take the day to appreciate whatever city you’re in.
