I went to the 9:30 club Thursday night, but it felt like I went to a block party. The concert featured RDGLDGRN (pronounced red gold green) with opener and fellow DMV native Redline Graffiti. The best part about the night? The devotion DC fans showed for their local music culture. In a time when DC’ fast-growing urban art scene is emerging from underground to popular venues like the 9:30, RDGLDGRN’s performance demonstrates how much a strong fan base matters.
Redline Graffiti opened up the night with smooth electronic beats and easy-listening vocals. The Indie upstart has a flow familiar to The Internet’s modern R&B feels, and a name referencing a DC landmark only locals will known love. The breezy and memorable tunes such as Junior June and Cuddlebug made the four piece act a perfect opener for a night of DC flavor.
