Being with Richard Bishop from L.A. of Three AM Artist Management was certainly a pleasure. Always good to be with a hotshot music agent from L.A. at something like this!
We hit the Max’s Wine Dive showcase of bands (Avi Buffalo, Baron Von Luxxury, The Soft Pack and Anya Marina) sponsored by The Domain’s new aLoft Hotel. Guests scored points for the Spin and Foursquare (the newest social media craze) hosted contests. Later in the afternoon, we discovered a new D.C. based band, The Dance Party, who is just might be the next big thing in electro pop-rock and lead singer looks like a young, hot Johnny Depp. They are all hot, talented & young! That was upstairs at Malverde, above the hot 2nd Street district Mexican restaurant, La Condesa, followed by a legendary DJ set listening to the techno big-beat sounds of The Crystal Method. Took a break for a media interview with a Texas-native band 5, Dignan With over a million My Space hits, they seem poised to keep rocking the scene with their auroral melodies, poetic percussion and ethereal lyrics. Asked where they get their inspiration from, they said Grizzly Bear, Beach House and Arcade Fire. Dignan is the name of a character in the Wes Anderson movie, “Bottle Rocket.”
The entire interview will be streamed here:YOUTUBE
Thursday night would down by hopping some of the best industry parties at, where else, The Four Seasons Hotel.
