Joe Vetter @ Twins Jazz Club

Jan 8, 8:00 PM

Twins Jazz Club, 1344 U Street NW Top Floor, Washington D.C. 20009

Joe Vetter is a jazz pianist based in Bethesda, MD. A native of New York City, Joe grew up in a musical family. As musicians and educators, both his parents dedicated themselves to bringing music to the city’s public schools. Joe began studying classical piano at age nine and continued formal training through his college years. His musical interests ranged well beyond the classical repertoire, and for over a decade, he was active in New York’s vibrant jazz, blues, and R&B scene. He got an early start: When he played his first professional gig at age 15, his older bandmates worried that he wouldn’t be allowed in the club. After moving to the Washington, DC area, Joe shifted his musical focus exclusively to jazz, studying with DC jazz piano master Wade Beach and performing regularly with some of DC’s top jazz artists at venues such as Twins Jazz, the Henley Park Hotel, the Black Fox Lounge, and 701 Restaurant.

“Mirror Mirror” By Ian Abel Comes Out Today!

Ian Abel (pronounced “able”) is the queer fantasy lovechild of an East Village comic book nerd with a heart of gold. He was brought up in the East Village of NYC, raised on a steady diet of R&B, soul, and alternative rock. As an effeminate little 4th grader, he grooved to Destiny’s Child, bopped to the Spice Girls, and plumbed the depths of angst with Alanis. For well over a decade, Ian has been an artist and performer.  He has performed around the world and with greats like Nile Rodgers, Jimmy Fallon, and the SNL band. He has sung onstage at Carnegie Hall, on Chinese national television, and in festivals in Sun Valley, New York, and Edinburgh. 

In his newest track he sings about getting over his ex in a tender, uplifting, and powerfully driving ballad “Mirror Mirror,” released today. The confessional, pining track came from an experience Abel had years after his first big breakup while sifting through old emails.

Vacation Manor Brings You to a New Location with, “Apt. 4”

Painting in broad strokes of lush guitars, bright melodies, cinematic and intimate lyrics, and shimmering rhythms, the Virginia duo—Nathan Towles and Cole Young —often pose and ponder a key question during the creative process… “What’s the location?” asks Nathan. “Songs always bring me to a very specific place. So, we try to put listeners in a physical space. Their ears inform where their imaginations go. Maybe you’re cruising on the freeway or walking around during the blue hour. There’s introspection, but it’s communal.”
