A MISCELLANEOUS MASTERPIECE HITS DC

DC 3/3/05 - 3/6/05



The 2nd of two weekends in DC started off with a bang with STATIC VOID hitting the cozy upper floor stage of the VELVET LOUNGE. ANNIE SIDLEY followed up with an amazing vocal performance with her husband backing her up on bass and keys. THE VAULT added some British vocal flavor to the night, and JACKIE GINO funked up the night with their vocal floetry, and EMERGENZA vet''s MISALANEEOSSEEDS rocked the crowd as usual, with hard-hitting vocals, and even had a audience member come up and help out on backing vocals. THE FRANCHISE closed out the night with their geek rock contempo-folk sound. THE POINTLESS rocked the stage first Friday night with their take on the classic "For Whom The Bell Tolls." THE GORGEOUS followed with some great Gwen Stefani-ish vocals, and a super-tight backing band. RATTLECAN MOSES came back for 2005 after making it to the finals in DC''s EMERGENZA Festival last year. They brought out the handsonic once again, and showed the Velvet Lounge that you don''t need a real drum kit to rock the house. FOURTH ELEMENT had an amazing 25 minutes of rock solid music, showing up artists twice their age. SAINTS OF SILENCE pulled out all the stops with an energetic performance that put the packed house into a frenzy. WALKEN brought out a very unique sound, incorporating a synth and violin into their set, and THE LOST ATOMS strapped on their guitars, and their ties, to bring home the night with a formal-wear punkfest. One of the most interesting bands of the weekend, DOWN WITH GENDER brought more computer equipment on stage than you can find in your local COMPusa. Combining synths with a vocoder, they opened up the night, and everybody''s ears to their unique sound. THE SOUND OF SILENCE ended their set with a freeform vocal performance as a tribute to a close friend who found himself overseas, fighting for our country. NORTH AVENUE rocked the house, and their entire extended family, and made their way onto the 2nd round at THE STATE THEATER. Jager-sponsored BREAKINGFORM played a dead-on Rage Against the Machine cover in their 25 minutes of fame. They brought an intense crowd for an intense set. It was back to back reggae with UNITY REGGAE BAND and NAYAS. URB turned a more traditional reggae style up a notch, while NAYAS threw a little Latin flavor into the mix. WES TUCKER and the SKILLETS took everyone home with some folk rock freshness. On Sunday night, Jimi came back again in the form of KEVIN JOHNSON & AXIS. The less-than-packed house didn''t phase him a bit... it was one of the most intense performances of the weekend. NOVUS took us into the cosmos with some groovy space rock, and STUMATI B brought the Lounge to it''s knees with it''s hardcore sound, straight from Southern Maryland. BOB may have a simple name, but the sound is anything but. With a setlist impaled by the hi-hat needle, they mixed every style of music imaginable and invaded the ears of everyone in the cramped 2nd story of 915 U St. The weekend came to a close with the performance of Devil In My Mind. D.I.M.M. brought their brand of metal all the way from Silver Spring, MD, and left everyone in the crowd begging for more. Another amazing weekend of music in DC. We''ll back in two weeks for another installment of EMERGENZA 2005. Check the website for all the details.
