Hometown Sounds is stoked to present We Were Pirates for our December #DCmusic showcase on the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage.
We Were Pirates is the musical brainchild of Mike Boggs, a multi-instrumentalist who writes and records songs in his home studio in the DC area. Boggs has released three albums, an EP, and a film score for ‘Dear Mr. Watterson.’
Wired magazine featured We Were Pirates in their March 2012 issue following the release of the second album, Change. The feature said, “You heard this band’s public radio-friendly pop on This American Life and you heard its tracks on MTV’s: The Real World: DC. So don’t miss ‘Better Off Without You’ from the new album. Catchy synths will have your crew dancing a jig.”
2016’s Matter finds Boggs exploring a mellow, electronic aesthetic. A return to simple, melodic songs. Existential questions are asked about life, loss, and love.
RSVP here and come to the free performance at 6 PM on Friday December 9th!
