Flashband 2000's Showcase
and 6 other bands from DC's biggest music collective
Prepare for an avalanche of your favorite music you might not have realized was in the 2000s. It's a bit of a challenge because some of it is recent - but that's the fun part. Mix in your favorite tunes from 10-15 years ago, rediscover old favorites, and bring it to life on stage at Songbyrd Music House on July 9th!
For this show, we are excited to announce Anti-Social Collective as the headlining "alumni" band!! ASC formed at the 2014 Virginia Thanksgiving Showcase and has been performing a few gigs a month ever since. Like them on Facebook and check out this video. ASC is a stacked lineup of Flashband veterans: Rico Morales - vox/guitar (11 showcases), David Rothman - guitar (11 showcases), Arnaud Cornair - bass (12 showcases), and Freddy Duran - drums (4 showcases).
