RSVP on FacebookDC’s first-ever local music day will be held next week! On October 5, 2011 local businesses across the city will stream a playlist featuring the albums of 8 local artists all day.  The artists range from the acoustic folk of René Moffatt to the electronic Reggae/Soul/Funk of See-I, with lots of good stuff in between.

Listen Local First (LLF) and the artists will support and promote the local businesses while they in turn promote the musicians. If your business wants to participate, get more details from the LLF site.

The Listen Local First launch party will be held at the Dunes Wednesday night, with performances by three of the featured artists.  Click the banner to RSVP via Facebook, or click below to sample the artists.

René Moffatt See-I

Listen Local First DC (LLF) is a local music initiative devoted to building awareness and creating opportunities for LOCAL MUSICIANS and venues in order to raise the profile of DC’s local music scene.  LLF was born out of a collaborative effort with Think Local First DC and seeks to partner with local musicians, local arts organizations, local venues and locally owned businesses to create performance opportunities and new avenues for local music exploration. LLF’s mission is not genre specific.  In order to promote the true cultural depth of DC’s music scene LLF would seek to equally represent all local genres, from folk to funk.
