"At the #WeDC House at SXSW, meet the side of Washington, D.C. you didn’t catch on your eighth-grade field trip," says the event page for Washington, D.C. at South by Southwest.
Believe it or not, the District of Columbia is more than just the Federal City infamous for congressional gridlock and Donald Trump. This is a diverse and creative place, too.
The city’s tourism office sponsors an exhibit at the annual tech and music festival to showcase creativity in the District of Columbia. We’ve thrown our hat into the ring to participate at this year’s show.

Visit the Fret Zeppelin Kickstarter page to support this amazing project
We had the privilege of attending the launch party for Fret Zeppelin's Kickstarter campaign over the weekend and had a great time!
For our fans out there who agree this device is super cool, why not back the Kickstarter project with a donation of as little as $5?
A donation of $199 or more will land you a Fret Zeppelin of your very own before it hits shelves, estimated to deliver this October.
That's a wrap, thank you Fret Zeppelin!
Here we are on the set to film a testimonials segment for our friends at Fret Zeppelin. We gotta say, this device is super clever and very cool. Fret Zeppelin teaches guitar in a whole new way.
Lights all the way up the neck illuminate to show newbies exactly how to play chords, scales and even songs. It also has a setting to flicker the lights at random, which makes it a cool accessory for the stage.
Because the LEDs are only about half as tall as the frets on a guitar, it doesn't interfere with playing or create any annoying buzz on the strings.
We can't wait for the launch of the Fret Zeppelin Kickstarter campaign and wish the savvy developers great success!
Get ready - we're making our small screen debut!
Here's a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Nikki with one of the creators of Fret Zeppelin, Shaun Masavage. We're helping them shoot a promo video for their super cool LED device that teaches guitar in a whole new way.
In a few weeks we'll premiere our new single "Crash + Burn" just in time for the unveiling of Fret Zeppelin's Kickstarter campaign. Stay tuned!
Playing guitar while wearing an eye patch is harder than it looks
What an amazing night! The David Bowie tribute show did not disappoint, if we do say so ourselves. It was a packed house, and all the bands looked and sounded great.
Having a chance to dress the part worked out really well. By coincidence we had discussed doing a "Many Looks of David Bowie" band costume when we played Rock 'n' Roll Hotel last October.
We couldn't get our act together to have band costumes ready in time for that show, unfortunately. But this tribute concert gave us a second chance at greatness!
Many thanks to the fine folks who came out to enjoy a night of David Bowie music as well as to Mason Inn for hosting us.
Best of all, costumes are encouraged
The news of David Bowie's passing earlier this month shocked the entire band and the music community at large. When we got together for rehearsal and talked about it, we realized we each had a different favorite song and our own unique stories of how his music impacted our own musical development.
While we mourn his loss, we were also so thrilled to be asked to participate in an upcoming tribute show where several District bands will play many of the Thin White Duke's classics and some lesser known numbers.
We will be joined by Moral Hangover, Multi-Pass and Goblin Kings, and the show will take place next month at Mason Inn. It's a free event.
We've got our work cut out for us, no doubt. For our part, we're playing "Ashes to Ashes," "Starman," "The Man Who Sold the World" and "Space Oddity."
