Remember these features? In case not, they’re where I attempt to enlighten you all as to the cool musical goings-on in our greater metropolitan area; hence Cool DC Events. The first Cool DC Event of the semester is close to the heart- two of our very own Music Library employees will be performing at an open mic night next week!
When they’re not busy checking scores in & out, Inti & Ella, two classic M. Lib faces, form a musical duo called Inti & the Confused. The two play a goodly amount of string instruments and each can sing. They play a blend of folk, bluegrass and acoustic singer-songwriter pop. From their bandcamp page: “part-singer songwriter, part-perplexed bluegrass project, 100% weird…bringing mellow mandolin, fierce fiddle, and some sweet vocal cords to a location near you.”
The location in question, this time around, is a nonprofit performance art spot called Bloombars, located in Columbia Heights. They hold a weekly open mic night called the Garden Open Mic, with a variety of performers, musical or otherwise. This week’s open mic is being hosted by Tamil poet Gowri K. and Inti & the Confused are the featured artist! While I’ll be covering Inti’s shift and unable to make it, you all should check it out- it’s a good chance to support the Music Library by supporting its employees and the larger music community, too!
The show is on Monday, 9/8. It starts at 9, with a sign-up opening time of 8:30 if you, too, would like to perform. Here’s the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1476189955986579/
