DC to BC: Yes, Trillectro Is a Local Festival, Too

Half of the lineup booked for tomorrow’s Trillectro music festival represents the D.C. area. But it’s not clear whether the festival’s target audience knows that.
“If you go online you'll see that people don't think there's a lot of talent from D.C. on the bill,” says Quinn Coleman (aka DJ Spicoli), a member of the promotion [...]

Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom Have a Label Now

Moombahton inventor Dave Nada and his Nadastrom compatriot Matt Nordstrom may be L.A. denizens now, but they've remained a regular presence in the District over the last year and change with U Street Music Hall's regular Moombahton Massive parties. Now they've started a label—as all buzzy DJs eventually do?—that's called Diabluma Sound and is devoted to "moombahton [...]

Radio Free D.C.

You've got a few more workday listening options, beginning this month. ESL Music, the label owned by local chill purveyors Thievery Corporation, launched an online radio station today, and it is so, so, so chill. How chill? So chill it's been playing the same chill loop—glossy keys, crowd noise, Rasta-voiced hypeman—since I tuned in like [...]

Download Nadastrom’s Free Scion A/V EP

The last time Scion A/V funded an EP by a band with D.C. roots—that'd be grindcore trio Magrudergrind—things got a little messy. I'm guessing EDM fans are a little bit more forgiving toward corporate sponsorship, so D.C. expats Nadastrom have nothing to worry about: The L.A. duo's new El Baile Diabluma EP will cause no [...]

Don’t Be Bored: O Canada

People love to mock Canadians for being placid, harmless, and adorable, but that stereotype of our neighbors to the north overlooks one critical fact: While folks from Toronto and Montreal might be peaceful and well-meaning, their neighbors in Vancouver don’t fuck around. Just a few months ago, crazed Vancouverites torched half their otherwise idyllic city [...]

Don’t Be Bored: Assassination Vacation

Rave culture may seem like a product of the ’90s, but massive modern events such as the Electric Daisy Carnival prove young people will always want to get high (on life) and shake what Shiva gave them. The Identity Festival is a traveling rave featuring nearly 30 artists whose main goal is to get this [...]

Goodlife Tuesdays, D.C.’s Most Eclectic Weekly, Turns 1

Sweat builds the bridges that people can't. Bottle-service fist-pumpers who love hard electro kings Swedish House Mafia, Nike Foamposite-wearing hustlers who love Rick Ross, and Phoenix-loving indie kids are all regular sights at "Goodlife Tuesdays," a weekly party at downtown hot spot Recess. Thrown by local promoters Rock Creek Social Club, the city's most eclectic weekly celebrates its first anniversary [...]

Don’t Be Bored: Four Good Arguments for Local Music

After a series of late-career misfires, Sidney Lumet’s last film was one of his best—easily the director’s finest work since 1982’s The Verdict. With 2007’s Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead, Lumet returned to his stark, austere roots with a botched robbery that splits an already fraught New York family. Ethan Hawke and Philip Seymour [...]
