DCAF & BURGER SOUNDS PRESENTS: MY BODY MY FESTIVAL
Welcome to My Body My Festival, the all-things-local DC music festival celebrating our city and our right to do Whatever. We. Want. with our bodies—dancing included. All proceeds benefit the DC Abortion Fund, one of the largest abortion funds in the country.

Join us for Day 2 at Songbyrd featuring Sneaks, ViRG, Veronica Faison, Zawadi Carroll, Devon Williams and even more surprises on the way!

SNEAKS – “Like a piece of art with as many interpretations as people who view it, Eva Moolchan aka Sneaks’ music is kaleidoscopic, completely unique to the listener. With astrological assertions alongside poetry filtered through a riot grrl spirit and set to thumping bass lines and infectious beats, Moolchan asks all of the questions but invites the listener to divine their own answers. Moolchan also writes zines and makes short films.”
Veronica Faison (she/her) is a DC-based singer-songwriter largely influenced by the classic jazz vocals of Nina Simone and Billie Holiday and the witty lyricism present in folk and piano-based pop. A confessional wordsmith, Veronica also commands a three-octave range and a sentimental nature. She daylights as a lawyer in the gender justice movement, hoping for a world where more people can live with the dignity and delight they’re entitled to.
ViRG’ is a synth-based indie rock band from Virginia formed by Piano Whitman. ‘ViRG’ is centered around Whitman’s commanding voice reinforced by intricate, lush synthesizers and strong rhythms produced by both drum-machines and acoustic percussion. Fans of both straight ahead indie-pop songwriting or the moody tech excursions of ‘Kid A’ will find something to enjoy in ViRG’s repertoire.
Devon Williams (she/her) is a singer-songwriter-guitarist performing around Washington DC. Her music chapters her experiences as a queer twentysomething through confessional songwriting, cathartic melodies, and chords she thinks sound cool. Devon is influenced by artists like boygenius, Mitski, and Car Seat Headrest.
Zawadi Carroll is a singer, songwriter, and creative director from Washington, DC. Zawadi’s music is a reflection of her vast life experiences. Her lyrics embrace the power of feminine energy while her voice breathes calm and glamour into her listener’s ear.
Zawadi began her journey as a musician while attending The University of Wisconsin-Madison on a full tuition scholarship. From there she brought her creative talents back to the East Coast where she built the House of Ethereal Realness, a femme based arts collective committed to providing intentional and safe spaces that foster radical joy and love
