Presenting Des Demonas @ Luce Unplugged

Hometown Sounds returns to the Luce Unplugged showcase next Thursday night February 13th to host DC punk band Des Demonas!

The band hails from Washington, DC, and have been denizens of the byways and highways of the city’s musical underground for years. Jacky Cougar Abok is the six-foot-five-inch tall Kenyan punk singer who has drummed with Thee Lolitas and Foul Swoops. Guitarist Mark Cisneros has bent strings with Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds, Deathfix, and Medications, and has pounded the traps for The Make-Up and Benjy Ferree, the latter alongside organist Paul Vivari. Joe Halladay (Citygoats) on bass and Ryan Hicks (Suns Of Guns) on drums round out this squared circle of sight and sound.

A staff-led art talk about artwork chosen by the performing artists starts at 5:30 pm followed by a performance at 6 pm. As always, the show is free & all ages so RSVP here!
