The Black Sparks in May and said "they rock!"
I'm going to the Bach to Rock band competition on Saturday at 9:30 Club to see my friend Ray Brown in two bands. Ray is in the 6th grade, and I've been watching him learn to play guitar for over 3 years. He's been honing his appreciation for rock and roll since he was about two years old. It probably started earlier. Ray will be playing bass in both the Bobblehead Boys and Black Sparks, scheduled to go on between 1:30 and 4 pm. That's right-this is a daytime show and features dozens of bands and well over a hundred young performers. There will be a wide variety of sounds; Black Sparks is a punk band and Bobblehead Boys do "family-friendly" covers according to Ray. A note for those in holiday mode: the coffee bar will be open!
We at DC ROCKS are proud that DC is truly an all-ages show.
