The Red Fetish
Known for unpredictability in style, The Red Fetish runs the stylistic gamut, from progressive string quartet compositions to stripped-down acoustic blues-tinged ruminations to experimental folk and prog spaces.

The group will be performing its latest work, The Wind, As Now, Is Silent (2016) in its entirety, with an extended lineup:

Alejandro Castano (vocals, guitars), Kris Kagei (vocals), Bryan McTiernan (drums), Kai Filipczak (bass), Daniel Suhre (vocals, piano), Claire Blaustein (violin), Faheem Moghal (viola), Kylene Kiang (cello), Heidi Dewally (oboe)

Teething Veils

Teething Veils began in 2006, with Greg Svitil writing songs in a beige-carpeted second-story bedroom on Florida Avenue in Washington, DC. A seven-piece Teething Veils band is presently recording a new album, Sea and Sun, fresh out of a cross country tour in support of their album Constellations (2014).

Greg Svitil (vocals, guitar), Hannah Burris (viola)

Daniel Suhre

Dan is a primitive piano player, writer of short rags, dark boogies, and slacker meditations. He uses the piano, what he would describe as a dying instrument, in somewhat old-sounding and strange ways.
