What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : We spend a lot of our time on U street in NW and in Adams Morgan. We all live together in Falls Church because we needed a detached house (for the noise) and it's a bit cheaper.

At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: Our drummer has a drunk alter ego that we call "Jonathan" 

We all say the made up word "shmergergon" way too often.

We have named the collective conciousness of our band "Althea" and consult her when decisions need to be made.

Anything else we should know, or you want to share: We owe a lot of the success of our band to the Tinder app.
