Parklife DC today announces the best in DC concerts with our inaugural awards program, named for our mascot, DC’s own state bird — the Wood Thrush. Our Thrushie Awards salute bands and venues in line with our mission to review live music concerts.
Congratulations to the 2018 Thrushie Awards winners, several of whom took their top spots from polling ran by Parklife DC over the last half of November.
Parklife DC will honor DC bands and venues with our inaugural awards program, named for our new mascot, DC’s own state bird — the Wood Thrush. Our Thrushie Awards are inspired by our mission to review live music concerts.
Welcome to the 2018 Thrushie Awards! Parklife DC will name the best local band of the year with your input. Vote for the best DC band now through Dec. 1.
Now, we fully realize that there will be a lot of strong opinions about our list, and we readily confess that we could review even more local bands next year. But for now, our poll is limited to bands reviewed by Parklife DC in the last year. As this is our inaugural year for the Thrushie Awards, we sought to keep this list short.
Katie McD fronts Bacchae at Rock and Roll Hotel on June 30, 2018.
DC quartet Bacchae attack a song with conviction. Vocalist Katie McD doesn’t merely sing — she blares like a siren. And the band surely sounded the alarm opening Paperhaus at Rock and Roll Hotel on Saturday.
