Can I let you guys in on a little secret? Yes? Ok, so I stumbled across a cool way to explore my city (DC) and listen to cool music, but there is a catch… YOU DON’T KNOW WHO PERFORMING or WHERE IT IS… weird right? Lol, well I definitely thought it was an Ed Sheernan and Ledisi concert I paid for – 2 tickets at that-just for me to fix my specs proper and see that was a charity concert for a completely different date… Welp.
So I told my friend ‘girl, we are not seeing anyone’ s Ledisi or Sheernan gurl’, and should cancel plans (I already sent my request for a refund to their no refund policy lol). To my surprise she was against canceling and still wanted to go (bless her heart because I didn’t want to go to this weirdness alone lol). Responded to support and let them know ‘Imma give y’all a shot’ and kept my lil pennies for the secret concert, and Y’ALL, LET ME TELL IT!!!
Got the email of the address (still no clue of the artist) the day before and we’re all set and confirmed on the guest list (they fancy y’all). Was super early so I got to check out some areas of Petworth that I have NEVER seen (like ever lol). Tried some Czech food (will withhold the name because they were nice) and some bomb food at Midlands… I recommend Midlands… The Chef there is an arse hole, but he is good for it… Dont take any offense lol. Now on to the show..
The show was AMAZING.
The location was amazing as well (Sofar Sounds takes pride in more intimate settings… And guess what?! BYOB (Bring your own beer *drinks*). So not ọnly did I get to hear some awesome music, in an awesome location, meet awesome people, and do this all locally- I may just try a sofar in any city that I travel to.
