TVD Recommends: Farewell Republic,
A Benefit Concert for
DC Vote at DC9, 2/23

On Thursday, February 23rd, the Monument Music and Arts Festival will host a fundraiser concert at DC9 featuring Farewell Republic and Heads on Sticks in support of DC Vote.

Monument Music and Arts Festival is a forward-thinking charitable organization that empowers musicians and their fans to impact positive social change through philanthropy and activism. Over the past two years, Monument has raised awareness and financial support for a wide variety of DC-based non-profit organizations.

All of the proceeds from tomorrow’s show will go to DC Vote, a local organization dedicated to securing full democracy and full voting representation for the residents of the District of Columbia. As the recognized leader of the DC voting rights movement, DC Vote advocates for enactment of critical voting rights legislation, educates Americans across the nation about DC’s status, works to prevent congressional interference in DC’s local democracy, and serves as a resource to elected officials, the media, and the public.

Farewell Republic, fronted by DC native Sivan Jacobovitz, released its debut full-length album Burn the Boats earlier this week. The band’s music is an ambitious mix of art rock, drawing on a wide swath of influences from post-punk to psychedelia, from shoe gaze to DC punk.

While it started as the solo project of Birds of Avalon bassist David Mueller, Heads on Sticks has taken on a pulsing life of its own and has quickly become a prominent name in the burgeoning Raleigh, NC music scene.

With a sound that’s best described as a buzzing and psychedelic combination of garage rock, synths, and programmed drums, they will be sure to have you moving when they take the stage tomorrow.

DC voting rights activist Adrian Parsons, aka Jeanne Pierre le Douche, will also be on hand to DJ before and after the bands.

And just announced today, included on the line-up for tomorrow is singer Micah P. Hinson, who is well-known for his Americana, country sound. He was to open the now-canceled Twilight Sad show.

Good bands, good tunes, and good times… all for a good cause. Make sure you grab your tickets and come out to DC9 tomorrow for what is sure to be a great event!
