Paul & Tony are pretty excited about the autumn weather, presenting a Fancy Fall Spectacular edition of the Hometown Sounds podcast. Tony talks about troll texting Justin Trawick and Paul finally gets to music festival. And of course the hot new DC jams for the season!
This massive hurricane looks like it’s going to miss DC this weekend, which is great news for fans of live music shows and bad news for those who like wet excuses to stay in and “Netflix & chill” or whatever. Cap off this first October weekend with a trip to DC9 to celebrate the newest music video from rock band The Very Small. Robin Smith, Aaron Mann and Zack Be roped in esteemed music video director Nigel Lyons to create visuals for “The Worst Form Of Violence”, a brand new single release from their 2014 album Zoomed Way Out. The video combines vibrant colors that accompany the melodic powerpop riffs with haunting images of poverty and strife to eludicate the lyrics. Catch them anchor an all-DC music lineup this Sunday night with The Escape Artist and Boon.
We’ve waited four years to get pummeled with more delicious truth bombs from Tim Hicks’s scorching hip-hop crew The Cornel West Theory. The final product is worth the wait as Coming From The Bottom dropped last week, delivering a full 20 tracks worth of deft production and lyrics, featuring collaborations with Ursula Rucker, Queen Helene of Les Nubians and DC’s own Ian Svenonious. Watch the first music video from this release, “We Almost Lost Philadelphia” and head to their Bandcamp to grab this album for absolutely free.
