Moonrise Festival is the region’s biggest electronic music festival, and this year it’s bringing along artists like Diplo, DJ Snake, Kaskade, Vince Staples, and more! Make plans to go to Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland, on Aug. 11-12!
There’s a magic that Amelia Meath (vocals) and Nick Sanborn (producer/sound engineer) create. It’s an infectious feeling generated by Amelia’s compelling voice and energetic dance moves — itself buoyed by the soundscapes formed and molded by Nick’s panel of sounds. Over the past two LPs (2014’s self-titled Sylvan Esso and last year’s What Now), the North Carolina-based Sylvan Esso created beat-soaked tunes that stick in your head. But it’s their live show that’s a force to behold.
On Thursday night at The Anthem, the duo pulled no punches.
In the second half of her show at MGM National Harbor on Friday, Britney Spears grinds to a halt for a mock conversation with one of her dancers.
“Stop the show?” Britney asked. “We need to find a hot guy to dance with us?”
As it turned out, Team Britney already had a game volunteer named “Scott” lined up aside the stage, and he would soon provide some comic relief as a fetish object during a flashy performance of “Freakshow” from Britney’s 2007 album, Blackout.
