Safe music benefit for Papillon Cycles


The back parking lot of Acme Pie Co is turning into a socially distant live music stage this Friday July 31 starting at 6:30pm. This outdoor is held to benefit Papillon Cycles, Arlington's oldest bicycle shop. Masks and social distancing is required to see some awesome local bands live, including one of my favorites Jumpin Jupiter! Bring a folding camping chair to check these these four acts:

Grumbler
Jumpin Jupiter
Delarcos
X-Motorcycle Couriers


"COVID-19 has been hard on small business and although there is a demand for bikes, Papillon can't get stock or parts, putting them in a tight spot - so let's help them out while having a great time with music, friends and neighbors and plenty of space between you.


Join us on July 31st, from 6:30pm to 11pm for music from Jumpin' Jupiter, Grumbler, The Delarcos and X-Motorcycle Couriers. Pizza from Sicilian Pizza, pie from Acme Pie Co.
and soft drinks will be available. Entry donation is only $10.00, available at the event or in advance via Venmo (@sol-schott).


All proceeds benefit an awesome local business, that's been part of the community for over 35 years.
In order to keep everyone safe, strict social distancing guidelines will be followed and MASKS ARE A MUST! BYO lawn or camping chair. or advance purchase or to make a donation to the cause even if you can't attend, Venmo - @sol-schott. "

The North Country streaming Youtube

The North Country, a DC based experimental pop band, is doing a special livestream on YouTube this Sunday, July 12 at 8pm. The group is promoting their new LP America and Afterwards, which was originally going to be performed at SXSW before everything got cancelled.


The group’s music is eclectic, and each track contains a story that transports fans into a different point of view. America and Afterwards is an honest look at the present and a hopeful look to the future.


The North Country's music is very appropriate to modern times as they are "responding like future humans, also the name of the album’s first single, which dropped shortly before the pandemic struck. While there are dark themes throughout the album and criticisms of our society, there is also an earnest belief of what society can become when we rid ourselves of the forces that got Trump elected like racism, misogyny, and unchecked capitalism."


RSVP here on Facebook for the free livestream on YouTube!
