PhotoSynthesizers Are Back With Weekly Acoustic Sets

Maurice “BarCodez” Jackson and Joshua Bryant are keeping themselves occupied during these troubling times and producing a weekly video series known as the  P.S. Acoustic Sessions. Session number two features the song “Retrograde” from last year’s album “Apollogy”. It is not only a reminder of what they experienced as a band, but a reminder to all of us listening that our lives are cyclical. The  band uses the analogy of the retrograde motion of the planets to explain that our lives are actually still moving forward despite the state of relationships with people, places, things, and events from the past. They are following their own orbits that are out our control, but are still influenced by the gravity of the shared moments.  BarCodez is promising that the next P.S. Acoustic Sessions will be a hell of a surprise, so be sure to subscribe to the PhotoSynthesizers’ on YouTube.

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.
