DC Beer Week knows there’s no pairing quite like beer and live music. At the Howard Theatre Monday night August 12th, we’re bringing five bands for a unique homage to the District’s heritage. DC Beer Week Heritage Night is a showcase of local emerging talent - those pushing and adding to what we call “heritage.” Come celebrate with music, beer and complimentary whiskey tasting courtesy of George Dickel Whiskey.
TALENT (Alphabetical Order):
ACME : The duo adopting the “A Company that makes Everything” acronym has a range of genre bending sound that’s psychedelic and soulful. One half ascribes their early following to throwing house shows like the movie Project X, but without a pool.
DROP ELECTRIC : Awaiting the release of their new album in October, Waking Up In the Fire, Drop Electric has been playing shows and building a name for themselves. Their sound has caught the ears of music critics including NPR’s All Things Considered.
RED LINE GRAFFITI : The indie band’s name comes from a stretch of street art off the Red Line Metro. The self-labeled “electro rock newcomers” have built a reputation off their live performances and fair amount of press, including an interview with Washingtonian magazine.
URBAN CARTEL : This group gained momentum during their time at the University of Maryland, where their blend of hip-hop and rock got them opening for Nelly, Big Sean and eventually to SXSW. Their newest project The N.I.T.E. was just announced and coming in August.
WATERMELON : The Brooklyn-based group are no strangers to D.C. and are regulars in the house show D.I.Y pop-up music scene. The group cites many different influences, but has a strong rock-and-roll and funk foundation.
