There’s no better time for the blues than while we’re still all prevented from gathering together to enjoy music together. We will do so again soon, but meantime, you just gotta keep singing the blues. Thus Jacob Green entreats the universe—as well he should—with “No Reason to Stop,” a plaintive, gently wailing song that, despite its pessimistic title, is actually rather upbeat. “No Reason to Stop” provides a toe-tapping tour through this most soulful of all music genres—and actually infuses blues with some soul to boot. The finger-picking Green complements with some truly heartfelt lyrics. It’s insanely simple, but then again, that’s what the blues is: three chords lamenting past hurt while looking toward the future. Give it a deserved listen below.
Stay tuned for more, as Green has another album brewing for March called “No End in Sight.” Meantime, you can kick back with “No Reason to Stop.”

As a producer bringing some major events to Capital Pride this year, Zach Renovátes admits that he was keen to get Betty Who on the lineup. After having seen several of her live performances already, Renovátes knew the Australian would make a fine marquee addition to the “Kinetic Presents Candyland” event at Echostage June 10.
Fortunately, she was both available and interested.
“Something that I personally saw was that [Betty Who] is one of the most pro-LGBT singer-songwriters I’ve ever ever seen perform live,” Renovátes said, adding that the D.C. audiences at her concerts come largely from within the gay community. “So she absolutely knows that we as queer people make up a huge percentage of her fan base.”
The June 10 event is the main draw of a weekend of collaborations between Kinetic Presents and the Capital Pride Alliance in celebration of D.C. Pride 2023. Other big names who will play at various venues around the District include DJs Abel and Cindel, Dan Slater, as well as Jerac and Paulo Fragoso. It’ll be a pride-filled musical weekend indeed, with Echostage, Sax, Bunker and Bliss Nightclub hosting the pulsing sounds of revelry. And there’s also the big parade on June 10.
