Velvet Loung/Thing with the Stuff battle.|
If your unfamiliar with what The Velvet Lounge is, here is the long and short of it:
Small hole in the wall venue in NW D.C on U street, local bands and such with a nice sound system and lighting.
Sounds good right?
Except that the people who run sound, book shows, and do anything admin suck and are pretentious dick holes. Afrosheen had played there, and we were never treated so badly. I've heard the same from everyone I know who has played there.
The Velvet Lounge host's the Emergenza music fest. Nough said.
I posted a harmless video without sound of Rashad's last set at The Velvet Lounge on Youtube over the summer.
Well the triade began last week... you can check it out here and recently has started on the Thing with the Stuff blog.
Please feel free to leave any feedback/comments/questions/concerns.
Hooray for local music!!!!!!!
