allthebestkids – dreamastr

For all its many faults, 2017 will always be remembered as the year Kusama joyously took over Instagram in DC. The Hirshhorn museum’s mega-popular exhibit of artist Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors was the #1 hot ticket of spring, and required multiple Instagram posts to fully realize the jealousy of our peers. Funky hip-pop band allthebestkids went way further and somehow managed to shoot an entire music video in the exhibit, despite the crowds and gentle prodding of event staff. Though the song “dreamastr” appears on their 2016 album Go Out With A Bang, allthebestkids could have written this as the cosmic theme song for the gorgeous and whimsical exhibit. Catch them opening for Miami band Magic City Hippies at the Black Cat on Saturday night.


allthebestkids – Confetti

Genre-defying ensemble allthebestkids debuted their new single “Confetti” with a bang last week, dropping this music video shot during this year’s Funk Parade festival on U Street. The video’s backdrop hearkens back to one of our faves ever, Asheru and The Funk Ark’s “Funky DC” from 2014, and we hope more bands will follow suit. The song is a certified earworm, with singer Anya Ross’s killer hook accentuating Cody Valentine’s rap verses, and the crisp drums and big brass sound make us want to dance through the streets. Catch allthebestkids and Drive TFC on a sunset cruise on the Boomerang Pirate Ship on Sunday September 17th, because what’s better than partying on a pirate ship?
