Gabriel Garzón-Montano/June 8
“After quietly releasing one of the best R&B albums of 2017Gabriel Garzón-Montano seems determined to ratchet up the noise levels this year.” -NPR.org

Laura Reed/June 15


South African-born, Nashville and North Carolina-based, Reed commands the stage with powerful vocals, a soulful sound passionate storytelling.

Aztec Sun w/ stArt of Cool/June 22


Washington DC’s Aztec Sun produces an upbeat and retro groove steeped in 70’s Funk and Soul. Students from stArt of Cool, the Art of Cool Project’s jazz education arm, and their instructors, open the evening.

Valerie June w/ Kamara Thomas/June 29

PLAYLIST HEADLINER!

Valerie June perfected her handsomely idiosyncratic brand of Americana on this second LP, steeped deep in electric blues and old-time folk, gilded in country twang and gospel yearning. The press-repeat standout is “Astral Plane.” -Rolling Stone. Cosmic Americana songwriter Kamara Thomas opens the evening.
