The New Retro, a local hip-hop/funk fusion band, is headlining a one day “DC Funk Festival” Monday (June 23, 2014) at the Rock & Roll Hotel (1353 H Street, NE). This event is an opportunity to experience the area’s best music, art, food and fashion.
An evening of great entertainment kicks off at 8:00 p.m. with the openers Robbie Celeste, LX, Too Flyy and CawlSted. The show continues at 9:00 p.m. with a mind-bending performance by Modern Pantheist, a psychedelic rock trio from Los Angeles.
The New Retro band is scheduled to take the stage at 10:00 p.m. and bless the audience with their unique brand of rap, rock, funk and soul. New Retro is one of the DMV’s hottest bands, and they have the musical chops and versatility to rock any venue. They performed a killer set last year at the influential Trillectro Music Festival.
Accompanying New Retro will be a quartet of DC’s top solo rappers: Lyriciss (aka Rob Regal), Dugee F. Buller, Brain Rapp, and the incomparable genius of Pinky KillaCorn. Any of these four lyricists have the talent and resume to be the headliners themselves.
In addition to the great musicians, attendees will be able to browse the “DC Marketplace”, a group of vendors selling quality food, clothing and cultural merchandise. Confirmed vendors for the Pre-Project are: Hippie Life Krew, Dirt2Gold, Will Rap 4 Food, Mental Language, Tiny Tastries, HVNTS, E Cent Designs and Buddy Mike’s Herbal Concoctions.
