At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: 

--1. In 2009, we had Dawes open up for us at IOTA Club & Cafe. They signed to ATO about 2 months later, and then they played Hollywood Bowl with Mumford & Sons about 18 months later. 
--2. I received a "cease and desist" letter from a band in Portland, Oregon, when I promoted myself as a joke (for 1 show) as Atomic Bride. These guys had like 20 MySpace fans. That still cracks me up. Just absurd.
--3. My favorite show in DC was supporting Valerie June in 2015, at a sold out Sixth and I Synagogue show with NPR filming in house.

Anything else we should know, or you want to share: 

--I went to high school with "Kingsley Flood" frontman, Naseem. He is my mortal enemy, and I will crush him at 1-on-1 pick up hoops on any court. You name it.
