Capital Rock & Roll \m/

Rock and Roll is Alive and Well and Living in D.C.

Please excuse the embryonic state of this effort to document the D.C. rock and roll scene. Currently, the Facebook page is kept much more up to date, as is the Instagram page if you dig squares. Just getting started on the Mastodon.

Concert promotion? For years the finest DC venues have hosted live shows curated by roXplosion, with lineups drawn from the best of DC, the surrounding area, and many distant lands. Full list: a roXplosion Presents!
