Thrushie Awards

Wood Thrush

Annually, Parklife DC hosts an 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.

In 2018, our blog held the First Annual Thrushie Awards with input from the public as to who should win in three categories. Congratulations to the winners of the 2018 Thrushie Awards
