The North Country
The objective reality is this: there isn’t one. While we may live on the physical plane together, always jockeying for a space to stand peacefully among the noise, each experience is always subject to the whims of the beholder. The promise and horror of today is very real. But it’s up to you on how those macro social currents will affect your reality.

Andrew Grossman—bandleader, guitarist and lead vocalist for DC’s The North Country—documents his search for widespread subjective truth through expressive, narrative-based songwriting, providing both context and personal color on the trials, tribulations and tiny victories of 21st-century adulthood. Blending polyphonic psychedelia, classic American songwritership and soulful indie-rock compositions, The North Country is a band with a distinct message and broad appeal. Think about a deep songwriting session between Elvis Costello, Andrew Bird and Jeff Lynne, mix in Songs in the Key of Life-esque horn arrangements, St. Vincent’s otherworldly progressions, and you’re on your way to understanding The North Country.

Their newly recorded full-length album—In Defense of Cosmic Altruism— finds the band in a place populated with unknowns, not unlike our current social climate. Freed from a certain future, The North Country is free to explore their many facets, incorporating sounds as vast as synth pop, experimental and neo-soul, weaving a pastiche of influences as diverse as our community.

Hoochi Coochi is a hand clapping soul stirring indie blues band from Dover, De. Starting in the warm fall of 2015, members Fatz Hawkins and Danielle Johnson have been hitting the music scene hard and heavy together. Both coming from well-established musical projects and closing in on a decade of musical experience, the two have joined forces to create something that's sure to make you dance. Mixing genres like blues, southern rock, rhythm and blues and adding a touch of indie they have been able to engage a wide demographic both young and old. Hoochi Coochi picked up multi-instrumentalist Spencer Greene in May 2016 to play keyboard and longtime drummer Chelsea Grant in July of 2016 on drums to round out their sound and add movement and flow to their live performance. Always a crowd favorite Hoochi Coochi brings the people together. They have entertained a wide array of venues from The Milton Theater to the Grand Opera House in Wilmington and winning The Annual Delmarva Folk Hero Competition 2016 and becoming finalist in Musikarmaggedon X they’re only getting better.
