Not only is D.C. the birthplace of go-go music, it’s the place musical greats and pioneers such as Duke Ellington, Marvin Gaye, Roberta Flack and Dave Grohl call home. It’s the city where artists historically have recorded hits and performed live in venues more than a century old that remain standing today.
The nation’s capital continues to boast a vibrant musical scene, complete with live local bands, national artists native to the area and a number of festivals that touch all genres.
DC Music Live keeps readers current on new music pulsing throughout the city, the musicians and bands that create the sounds and those who drop in on the D.C. metropolitan area to visit local stages.
Through video, photography and audio, DC Music Live provides visitors with a multiplatform experience that sums up the local and live sounds of the city.
