DJ Sets From Groovy Gene and Whitney AbtraKt Starting at 5pm!


The Crystal Casino Band is an indie rock quartet from Washington, D.C., whose music marries the early 2010s Tumblr-era aesthetic with introspective and socially-conscious lyrics. Many of their songs, such as “Waste My Time,”“Twenty-something Socialist,” and “Boys and Girls,”resonate with Gen Z audiences by articulating shared feelings toward modern dating culture and growing existential fears of climate change and radical politics. Their guitar-centered sound is a welcome return to form for classic rock lovers in search of a modern pop twist.





Who is Makeup Girl? Citizens of the District of Columbia have called their music “electrifying,” “dazzling,” and “funky.” We Interviewed a recent attendant of their shows, and they said they are one of the best live performers in the city working today. But who are they, really? A pack of thieving mongrels hired by Jesse James? A political superPAC? No, and no. Their sole objective is to make you have a good time, with a musical blend of rock, rhythm-and-blues, and psychedelic jazz. Their newest project “Aftertaste” is set to come out summer 2024.

Formed in late 2020, Night Walks features singer and guitarist David French, bassist Sam Hughes, multi-instrumentalist Shawn Korkie, and drummer Alex Kohler. The group came together at the height of the pandemic, breaking early ground by transporting David’s brooding bedroom demos into an alternate reality, where the chords are massive and drenched in neon lights.
