What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC :Fredericksburg, Virginia

At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: We played a house show in DC on Election Night the year Trump was elected, and drank beer at the greatest food chain known to mankind, Shake Shack, with locals watching the TV. It was one of the most culturally interesting and unifying nights of all of our lives, both at the show and after, attempting to bring people in and together through music and great beer

We played a show with the great and mighty Nora Jane Struthers at Gypsy Sally's in Falls Church, and she called me (Kristian) up on stage to sing one of Nora and my favorite folk tunes. Whilst being pulled up on stage, the angle of my legs didn't agree with my jeans, and they ripped from ankle to zipper, and i did what any good man would do, struck a pose and finished the song.

U Street is our favorite place to play. The energy DC always gives us time and time and time again is fire under our butt, and we love packin' out that basement and losin' our minds with this great city

Anything else we should know, or you want to share: DC was the first city to really give us a shot as musicians. whether it be auditions for LOCKN, U Street Music Hall, Gypsy Sally's, SoFar, our first times being in really cool venues with great fans and just awesome listeners have all been in DC, and we can't thank the city enough for that. Thank you guys
