Produced by Will Beasley and Paul Leavitt (All Time Low, The Dangerous Summer) and featuring a guest vocal performance by fellow local pop-punk icon Ben DeHan (American Diary), “Baltimore” looks, sounds, and feels like a collaborative effort. The track fluctuates between recognizing the motivation and inspiration the city and the scene provide, while also actively seeking its approval.

“Baltimore, do you like me now?” Jesse ponders throughout the evolution of the song that outlines his own personal growth and alongside observations of and experiences in this landmark harbor city.

Jesse says, “My song ‘Baltimore’ was written to highlight the resilience of the people of Baltimore. It’s about tough people living in a tough place yet overcoming tremendous obstacles and proving themselves. Even those that have moved away from Baltimore claim it as their hometown and always seem to be connected to the city.”

Fans are treated to a special b-side or bonus track, “Next Best Thing” engages in a thoughtful and healthy dialogue around growing up in a broken home; the desire and search for safe, healthy, and meaningful relationships; and according to the songwriter, “about going through the dark or your lowest point and coming out of it still alive.”

“We’re always destined for a journey and so much more, Baltimore.

Betty Who, headliner of Kinetic Presents Pride Month event

Zach Renovátes, Kinetic Presents: In the Name of Love For All

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.
