A number of candidates running for DC Council have now responded to a new music platform checklist, making public their opinions on issues including noise restriction, live music zoning, and tax support for gigging musicians. The checklist and policy platform, drafted by a coalition of DC music community representatives, was released on May 19 as an effort to better understand which of the candidates support a thriving and talented DC music economy.

Montserrat House and Eric Hilton of the legendary duo Thievery Corporation release his forthcoming solo debut album, Infinite Everywhere, on June 19.
While Thievery has hopped across various genres and painted with a broad musical brush over 25 years of albums and live work, Eric’s upcoming solo album is an offering that is much more distilled, focused and personal, and presents itself as an elegant exploration of inner space.
Eric recently presented “Infinite Everywhere,” the title track of the album.
