Bal Boheme - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Bal Boheme

Washington, DC pop balladeer Laurel Halsey (The North Country, Laurel Rose) has been making local audiences swoon with her mellow yet soulful piano tunes since 2014. In 2017, she founded Bal Boheme with bassist Mat Williams and drummer/producer Stephen Russ (The Fire Tonight). Williams’ and Russ’ energetic rhythm section—influenced by R&B, rock, and jazz— contrasts Halsey’s effortless delivery while accenting the drama and wry comedy in her lyrics. The band's self-titled debut EP, recorded over three days at Mike Reina's local studio, The Brink, showcases a band reveling in finding its voice as a creative unit.

Near Northeast formed in Washington, DC shortly after meeting while playing a South Asian music festival at the Kennedy Center. Guitarist Avy has made music in San Francisco, Portland, Europe, and India. Antonio developed his approach to percussion in Bosnia and New Mexico. Violinist and vocalist Kelly grew up singing and playing in Atlanta and Athens, Georgia. Austin took up the bass during his childhood in Virginia. While their aesthetics reflect the music on which they each cut their teeth --- Latin American, Indian, Balkan, and Appalachian --- their songwriting chemistry and musically adventurous spirit reach past these reference points.
