After beating the streets of Chinatown, Dupont, and Adams Morgan last night, the little piggies are blistered. The journey was worth the pain in the end because I stumbled upon a new band with incredible potential. The Fed.
I was overdue to see Phil Rossi, possibly the nicest, most engaging and enthusiastic member of the MetroMusicScene musicians. Since he was at local stomping ground Staccato last night, I couldn't not go. He and the Bad Habit (who I had not seen before) put on a great show for a substantial crowd.
Lucky for me, I left the blogger party at Lucky Bar in time to catch the last couple songs from The Fed, the band playing before Phil. I chatted for a moment with Fed drummer Kevin who said the band has been together for about 6 months. They're not overly tight yet, but I saw a flicker of a band I want to see much more in the coming months.
Take a listen: The Getaway - mp3
Also on the site, you can check out Anthology's 21 minute film about The Fed.
In Staccato news, I asked the owner if they're still closing or what!?! He said, "It's so up in the air."
