Artists and fans of multiple genres and diverse cultures & backgrounds come together for the best of DC Music.Washington DC. (August 8, 2019) – Saturday, August 17, 2019 marks the third time that syndicated radio show and podcast DC Music Rocks presents its annual festival at 9:30 Club, one of the Washington DC area’s most prestigious venues. In fact, Rolling Stone Magazine calls it one of the ten best live music venues in America. It is on that stage that five of the best and most diverse performers in the greater metropolitan area will perform, including: Eli Lev Collective, More AM Than FM, Sub Radio, Iza Flo, and Los Empresarios. These powerhouse groups will be complemented by a diverse lineup of singer/songwriters that are making incredible contributions to the local and international music communities such as Jasmine Gillison, Jahnel Daliya, Daniel Warren Hill, Karen Jonas, Lauren Calve, and Gabrielle Zwi.
This incredible lineup of talent, at this incredible venue, in this incredible town, will be available for one night only for an incredible price, just $15. Tickets are available on the 9:30 Club website: https://www.930.com/event/1866086-dc-music-rocks-festival-washington/
If that isn’t enough to entice fans of music in the DC area to set aside one Friday out of their year, a portion of the proceeds from the festival will benefit DC youth via non-profit organization The Musicianship, which of course has recently successfully carried the torch for Washington DC area music by maintaining The Wammie Awards. Thanks to The Musicianship, The Wammie Awards recently celebrated thirty-one years recognizing DC area musicians for their artistic works. The Musicianship provides access to after school programs, summer programs, and other opportunities for inner-city youth.
