Tubesday - Live and Local Edition

Today's #Tubesday selections are from a pair of local stalwarts releasing new tunes. You might remember Maryjo Mattea from last month's feature on 2 Dragons and a Cheetah, or from her work with Color Palette or A Pile of Dudes or the Beatles tribute band Daytrippers. She'll be unveiling new music tomorrow night at DC9, opening for Bitter Medicine with These Quiet Colors. Here's a video of her performing "The Other Side" at Lost and Found just a couple of nights ago.

Next up we have Justin Trawick, the perpetually behatted urban folkster hailing from NoVA. Singer, songwriter, producer and promoter of The Nine traveling roadshow, name it, and Justin has a hat for it (sorry, couldn't resist). His new-ish outfit The Common Good has a record release party at Pearl Street Warehouse this Friday. Here's a live performance of his song "This Is Love", taped backstage prior to a performance at the Carlyle Club.

The last few years have been great ones for the metro DC music scene, and 2018 promises to be no exception. Check back for release and performance updates from veteran performers and up and coming acts.
