Listen to Ben Dehan Bring Some Summer Vibes on, “Days Go By”

by The Alchemist

Baltimore based Alt/ Indie Artist, Ben DeHan, writes music you can connect to on an emotional level, akin to Third Eye Blind or Jimmy Eat World. Littered with moments of Catharsis, Joy, and Introspection, his music becomes a life soundtrack. As the guitarist of American Diary, Ben got his start on the Vans Warped Tour alongside bands like Angels and Airwaves, The Academy Is, and Matisyahu. Since then, he has spent countless hours writing and honing a sound that’s both accessible and intelligent and has begun releasing music and playing shows. Whether it’s a trip to the beach or driving through the mountains, these are jams to roll the windows down, sing out loud, and make memories to. Watch out for new songs and tour dates in the coming months!

This song makes one feel as if they are walking on the beach with loved ones, as the cover art suggests. While most people are stuck inside during quarantine, this song can make the listener feel as if they are adventuring all over the world with just the instrumental portion. It makes it seem as if all is well in the world, and we have found what they are looking for. Find out more about Ben here: bendehanmusic.com/

D.C. Powerhouse Duo Shor and Sitney Are Behind the Rise of DC/DOX Festival

The truth is more important than ever, and in the heart of democracy, the truth-telling of documentary filmmaking and exhibition must therefore continue. So it was that when AFI DOCS, a longtime D.C. institution, decamped for the west coast, Sky Sitney and Jamie Shor got to work on its replacement.

Shor, president of the D.C.-based PR Collaborative, and Sitney, a documentary film professor and director of the Film and Media Studies program at Georgetown University, had been intimately involved for years with AFI DOCS. So applying their expertise and significant network for an entirely new festival was well within their wheelhouse.

“In recognition that there would no longer be this really important platform, it became very obvious and clear we wanted something to fill that void,” Sitney said recently of the inaugural DC/DOX, which took place June 15-18. “So while we are certainly looking for DC/DOX to be considered a home for filmmakers [from] all around the world, we are rooted in D.C. and want to make sure it’s also reflecting the space that we’re in.”
