Out of Tune: Flo Rida’s Wild Ones masters mediocrity

Who says D.C. isn’t good for music? Sure, you can’t find a club on every corner, and for the most part you’ll have to venture pretty far outside that damn “bubble” everybody’s always talking about to get there, but the District has plenty of good venues for live music and DJ sets, and here we […]

Georgetown baseball player pursues rap career

Mike Seander, a graduate student on Georgetown’s baseball team, caught the attention of the Washington Post yesterday. Not for his on-the-field talents, though. You see, Seander raps. (His rap name?

I was quickly corrected when I referred to A Million Shetland Ponies, in which Georgetown freshman David Benedetto (SFS ’13) is a musician, as a one man band. “So, there are two members of A Million Shetland Ponies.

Voice‘s choices for the GPB Spring kickoff concert

The Georgetown Programming Board—the same people who brought you T-Pain—sent an e-mail to the student body last night asking for Georgetown’s input on the Spring Kickoff Concert.

Vox talks with The Walkmen’s Kevin Moehringer

The Walkmen, a popular mainstay among the indie rock set who played at the 9:30 Club this Tuesday, is no stranger to D.C.—four of the five band members were classmates at the St. Albans School.

Remix Your Weekend: DJ Earworm, Bone Thugs N Harmony

I don’t know if it’s possible to come across too many good songs in the span of a week, but this week I came pretty close. Mash-ups of David Guetta, remixes of Bone Thugs, and so many others. Sadly, I had to narrow down our selection to a couple fabulous party tracks for the weekend: […]
