Music Mondays

Other

Repeats every week every Monday until Mon Dec 07 2020 .
11/09/2020 - 7:00pm - 12/07/2020 - 7:00pm

Join us every Monday as we "Signal Boost" some of our favorite musical acts in the DMV and beyond. These online events are free, viewable on Olney Theatre Center's Facebook, YouTube, and our Blog–but they're only available online for one week. RSVP so you'll receive a reminder to watch when it premieres and a warning when we're about to take it offline.

These are free, online events, although the artists are all paid. Reserve a ticket to receive reminders, get updates, or make a (very optional, but encouraged) donation to support the program. Visit: olneytheatre.org/musicmondays

Schedule:
NOV. 9: JSYG
John Sygar is an actor and musician from Bowie, Maryland. He makes music under Jsyg and also streams on Twitch. You can follow him on Instagram @jsyg. He would also like you to vote. You can listen to John's music on Spotify and purchase his album "Do Disturb" on Bandcamp.

NOV. 16: LITTY OFFICIAL
With the flic of a Bic, Litty Official crash-landed into the DC LoFi Trap scene during the infamous 2020 Quarantine. Litty Official is a “Rapper, Trapper, BadBitchSnatcher” and eyewitnesses have described them as, “Fresh, Black, and Loc’d.” Litty Official cannot be contained in any binary--their flow is unique: jumping from fast to slow, using precise and silly word play, and surprising listeners with a pop of Jazz. Coming in hot from Planet #TooMuch, Litty’s beats are here for the party no matter the mood; delivering the perfect blend of chill-mode and turn-up. Listen on Spotify, Soundcloud and Apple Music.

NOV. 30: DIOR ASHLEY BROWN
Dubbed the “Hip-Hop Polymath” by the Washington Post, Dior Ashley Brown is a living legend. Her many creative roles are united by a single mission: to maintain the soul of music, empower all people, especially Black women and girls, and leave a legacy of positive change. Her latest single “Vernacular (RED/BLUE)” is hard-hitting, soft-centered, and unmistakably political – a bold call-to-action that treads down any attempts to use language as a way to divide and shut out others. At her core, Dior Ashley Brown is about changing atmospheres, breaking down barriers, and sparking a movement, revealing the ways diversity lends beauty and a greater understanding of what it means to be human. Check her out on Bandcamp, YouTube, and support her on Patreon.

DEC. 7: AMY ANDREWS
Born in Baltimore and raised on the Chesapeake Bay, Amy Andrews was brought up on the sounds of Sinatra, Ella, The American Songbook, and Motown, but spent years training for a career in musical theatre before writing her own music and taking to the road. After an auspicious move to Atlanta, GA, which served as her home base for the better part of a decade, Amy is now based back home in the mid-Atlantic. A wildly talented artist known for brilliant performances, stunning vocals, and unassuming wit and candor on stage, Amy has received national (US) press, chatted with radio and tv hosts across the country (US), and toured extensively across the States, Canada, and the UK. You can listen to and/or purchase her albums on Apple Music, Bandcamp and Spotify.
