Parklife sent Katherine Gaines to photograph the All Things Go Music Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion, and she returned with pix of SHAED, Girl in Red, Lauv, and St. Vincent, along with this blog entry about her experience at the festival.
It was a soggy grey day, not much for showing off fun festival attire. The crowd was mostly a sea of raincoats, ponchos and umbrellas. Some folks probably decided not to go, or left when it started raining but everyone who stuck it out wanted to make the most of their long awaited festival.

A “kerfuffle” is a commotion or fuss. Surely, local DC101 was thinking of something similarly disorganized when it lifted the name for its annual concert jamboree. That said, the DC101 Kerfuffle at Merriweather Post Pavilion will likely run like a well-oiled machine on Sunday, May 19, considering the high caliber of the bands performing — Greta Van Fleet, Young the Giant, The Revivalists, Tom Morello, SHAED, and The Blue Stones!

The MusicianShip, a nonprofit dedicated to providing music education to DC youth, sponsored its first Wammie Awards, recently choosing “the best of the best” among DC musicians for recognition to continue the mission of the dissolved Washington Area Music Association.
As editor of Parklife DC, I was a judge and a presenter for the 2019 Wammie Awards at the Lincoln Theatre on March 31, and I’m pleased to provide the full list of winners.

Recently at U Street Music Hall, SHAED (pronounced shade) took the stage to a packed crowd. It was a hometown show, and so it is always nice to come home and play with your closest friends and family. Interestingly enough, the first time I saw SHAED was not in DC but all the way in Chicago at Mamby on the Beach in 2017. So, I was glad to see them closer to home.
