M.H and His Orchestra, which I’ve dubbed in my head as the “Beirut Breakfast Club,” are appearing at the Jammin Java in Vienna, VA on 7/13. Tickets are $10 at the door. The group regularly performs at my favorite vegetarian place in Blacksburg, VA and their shows are always a great time. Check out their tune about Washington, DC below! Words by Leah Norod

Some local DC news. This Saturday, July 13th, U.S. Royalty will be debuting new music from their forthcoming album entitled Blue Sunshine at Industry Gallery. I can almost guarantee some homage to Fleetwood Mac and strong references to 60s psych, and 70s pop/rock. Oh yeah… and Protect-U will be spinning before and after the show. Scope the trailer above for Blue Sunshine and grab tickets HERE.

Full Moon 2013 (NYC)

Jun 11th, 2013 : by :: Tags: , , ,

For the common folk, a full moon generally conjures up cerebral depictions of pagan worship, howling (were)wolves, and aged cheese wheels. Though for many cult music fiends, South Asian travelers, and audacious festheads alike, this monthly lunar phenomenon instead evokes a distinctive obligation to dance unremittingly to the grandiose neon synth tunage catered by some of the raddest acts this side of the Milky Way. Creatively motivated by the legendary full moon beach parties of Thailand, the third annual Full Moon Festival will be held at ‘The Beach’ on Governors Island in the New York Harbor on Saturday June 22nd.

This year’s Full Moon Fest promises 1 island, 2 stages, 10+ artists, 4000+ concertgoers, and (of course) 1 celestial full moon. Take a lesson from the Thai and become fluent in the transcendental art of celestial electro-pop enlightenment.

The 2013 line-up features discoelectro standouts Miami Horror, Wild Belle, Tanlines, HAERTS, Cyril Hahn, and then some.

One lucky music worshiper will nab tickets by commenting below with their favorite astronomical themed band name or tune title–bonus points may be earned for stellar lunar references. All others are encouraged to join the inspired masses that have come before, in celebration of full moon festivities, by harvesting tickets here. Bonus: Watch last year’s recap video HERE.
