PAST: MUSIC: This SUN, March 1st at BloomBars! "Seed the Sound Sundays" with Sitali, 7:30pm, donation based

BloomBars is at it again! Last time I was there I was thoroughly impressed, always such a great vibe in that space! Located next to Wonderland on 11th St close to Kenyon, short walk from Columbia Heights metro.

BloomBars’ "Seed the Sound Sunday" will showcase musicians from a diversity of genres and will benefit various organizations. The featured cause for this evening is Kush, kushworld.org. Show is this Sunday, March 1st and will start promptly at 7:30pm. Please arrive early out of respect for the artists. National Sound has come on board as a sponsor, and they are determined to make this one of the premier acoustic performance spaces in the area. This is a fundraiser so please donate as you are able.

Seed the Sound Sundays is the first project for Artist-In-Bloom resident Sitali Siyolwe. The singer, songwriter, and guitarist spent his childhood crisscrossing the globe with stops in Egypt, Russia and England. At the age of 13, Sitali had his first recording session with veteran producer Glynn Johns (of Led Zeppelin and Rolling Stones fame). After stints in New York and Seattle, Sitali settled in Washington DC, where he formed the band christened with his name in 2005. Their forthcoming release “Aluta Continua” will arrive in Spring 2009.
