All things music – and filed under “etc” – 


*** Michael Jantz & The Davenports declare a rock emergency in DC!  Authorities report high levels of easy listening, smooth jazz, and one unconfirmed Kenny G sighting. Residents are urged to flee their homes and seek shelter at Solly’s U Street Tavern, where Michael Jantz & the Davenports will be on hand to deliver lifesaving rockstenance in Meat Loaf sized doses.  //  Solly’s on U Street – 9pm / / 942 11th St NW

*** If you missed Victoria Vox at the 9 @ DC9 last Sunday, you have no other option but to wait until the 26th of March to get your Uke fix. : ) Vox will be at Maritime Museum two weeks from tomorrow, to benefit the Baltimore Montessori.  // 301 East Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD

*** Danni Rosner will sock you in the eye if you do not attend her Busboys&Poets show, this evening. I was late for one of her shows once, and I’m still in traction. Ok, no not really. But regardless of physical violence, check out DR at BB&P tonight.   // 2021 14th Street NWWashington 

*** Laura Tsaggaris‘ new album “Keep Talking” is available for pre-order now, but sadly is not getting released until (sigh…) May 5th. : ) Until then, travel to Charleston, SC to see her. …Or wait until April 5, in DC. (FYI, the new album is amazing.) 


*** Supporting local music, playing deep album cuts, and just being probably my favorite radio station, WMVY is a Martha’s Vineyard based independent-radio station. Being originally from the Cape, I miss “real” music on the radio, like theirs. This week is their “Friends of WMVY”/fundraiser/benefit-thingie. Stream this station for an hour, and tell me that you don’t love it. : ) Then, give a few bucks to them, to support the station. Do it now! : ) 

*** While I can admit that Polly Scattergood is not for everyone, if you’re looking for an off-the-radar, Bjork-esque, etherial voice – or just something other than the list of mainstream releases this week, (Kelly Clarkson, The Dream, etc) Polly let loose her debut album yesterday. You don’t have to love it, but give it a chance. : ) 

That is all – Enjoy -kk
