In Photos: D.C. Music Industry Night at Ten Tigers Parlour
Following the horrific events that happened in Charlottesville, our discussion on race and inclusion in the music community last Thursday felt more relevant than ever. Bringing together some of D.C.’s music influencers at Petworth’s Ten Tigers Parlour, the conversation touched on issues like increasing diversity at shows, providing more spaces for musicians of color to showcase their work, dispelling stereotypes and increasing collaboration among different groups in the community. If you missed the event, you can stream the entire discussion on our Facebook page.
Special thanks to Maryann Lombardi of the DC Office of Cable Television, Film, Music & Entertainment for moderating the panel, and participants Camille Kashaka (Director, Anacostia Arts Center), Jamal Gray (Artist and Curator, Uptown Art House/ Nag Champa DC), Jim Thomson (Founder, Electric Cowbell Records and Multiflora Productions), Joe Lapan (Owner, Songbyrd Music House & Record Cafe) and Marcus Dowling (Creative Entrepreneur and Journalist, Decades/ Pitchfork /Bandcamp).
Thanks also goes out to Ten Tigers Parlour for hosting D.C. Music Industry Night and Chuck Levin’s Washington Music Center for sponsoring the event.
