Here’s another list of websites music lovers may want to bookmark and visit frequently. They validate the theory that the marketplace of ideas is vibrant and in full swing in the DMV area.
When we first came across DMV JAMS we could see right away its creators were on to something. It’s a platform for introducing new artists and their music that’s narrowed down to a specific geographic area. Very cool, because there’s so much noise on the Internet that tons of great music is missed by an audience that would love to hear it if it were more readily available. That’s the premise, but there’s lots of other offerings on the site including their own channel.
The mission of DMV Unplugged is to increase the familiarity and knowledge of local musicians, models, athletes and fashion designers among local residents and to showcase the DMV lifestyle to a national audience. They’ve got a full team, writing about music, fashion, sports, and politics. One great feature on their homepage is a listing of the top 10 DMV songs. If you’re making music, or just love music, check them frequently for the latest updates.
The Urban Feed is sleek and stylish, beautifully designed and does an excellent job of doing exactly what it promises – feeding viewers the latest in music, fashion, and entertainment. It’s the creation of Kiki Ayers who is the CEO and is responsible for content and business aspects.
If Marcus J. Moore is the preeminent music critic in the DMV then DMV Spectrum (he’s the Founder and CEO) automatically has to be regarded as a serious destination for area music lovers. It’s got videos, links to blogs, reviews and news. Seriously cool is the beat maker on the home page. Obviously, the writing is impeccable.
From DC To BC is the website of the folks responsible for coordinating last Friday’s “Don’t Wuwwy” show at the 9:30 Club so you know they’re doing good things. Very laid back and full of info about music, events, other blogs, you name it. But focus on the events. Too many times we learn about something we missed because we didn’t know it was coming up. If you want to know in advance, this is the site.
OnStage is always looking for local people and products that inspire us. We're proud to introduce and We Recommend our friends at Isreal Life. Take a look at their information...

GBD stands for Golden Brown Delicious and if you’re anywhere in the Dupont Circle area looking for the chillest place to eat and kick it with friends this is absolutely the eatery to choose. GBD is the home of chicken and doughnuts and if that combination initially strikes you as odd, think again, then read the fantastic reviews this place is receiving on Yelp. Basically everyone agrees that the Happy Hour is extremely affordable and a whole lot of fun, and Saturday and Sunday Brunch at GBD is definitely the place to be. Happy Hour lasts from 4:30 to 7:00 and offers $3 to $5 beers, $3 wines, a $3 punch that switches daily along with tasty treats. Brunch is 10am to 3pm with offers like chicken and waffles, bottomless Mimosas, bottomless punch and a great assortment of delicious doughnuts.
Visit GBD and your experience goes way beyond the pallet though. Cool staff, cool customers, ambience to die for. It’s a cut above for sure. Highly recommended! Keep up with them on Twitter @GBDchixndoughnuts.
