Margot MacDonald at Iota Thursday

Margot MacDonald is returning to Iota this Thursday June 30 for a performance that I'm looking forward, along with other local bloggers like Arlington Nightlife. Margot is a Clarendon native who took home the "Artist of the Year" crown during the 25th annual Washington Area Music Awards, held in February at the State Theatre in Falls Church. The win marks the 19-yr-old's seventh Wammie, underscoring her hot streak that began with the 2007 "New Artist of the Year" award.

Last September she performed in Clarendon and did a one woman rendition of Massive Attack's Teardrop that "strips it down and rebuilds it with live loops of her own award-winning voice and subtle heart."
