Local “punk pixie” Mundy Spears sings her personal style of new wave soul at during the RAW Artists Holiday RAWK DC Showcase at the Howard Theatre on Wednesday, Dec. 12. While we don’t have the full line-up of local artists on hand, Mundy always delivers an engaging show herself, and Parklife DC highly recommends you check her out.

We had the pleasure of seeing Mundy twice in the past year, and our first encounter with her at DC9 was a revelation. (Check out pix and review from a show at Rock and Roll Hotel in April.) With a fire in her eye and a kick in her step, the expressive singer performs in a punk cabaret style while backed by an electronic soul band. The results place Mundy musically in the Scary Monsters era of David Bowie, leaving us with a firm impression of how Amanda Palmer might sound if she were to take up “Fashion” or “DJ.”

Mundy promises all new material on Dec. 12, so it’s difficult to guess what you might specifically hear at the Howard Theatre. But check out Mundy’s music on SoundCloud to date:

Based in Los Angeles, RAW is an artists network supporting a lot of performers in DC. On its website, RAW states its mission is “to serve independent artists with tools, resources, education, and exposure needed to thrive and succeed in their creative careers.”

“RAW showcases indie talent in visual art, film, fashion & accessories design, music, performance art, beauty, and photography,” the organization adds. “ RAW is a fun and alternative way for creatives to showcase both to their local community and the world-at-large.”
