On Wednesday in DC, Can A Sista Rock A Mic? kicks off it’s 4th year of showcasing underrated female soul singers and hip hop artists from across the nation. The festival continues through Saturday with a free show in Silver Spring.
If you’re in the DC area or able to road trip it here, the lineup for each night is one not to be missed. If not, yours truly will bring it to you here.
Check out the lineup and visit the CASRAM site for more information.
I’m excited to say that this will be my first time seeing the majority of these artists perform live. If you’re not able to make it to the area for the festival, please visit these artists’ Myspace pages and support their music. It’s hard out here for a songstress/ femcee – particularly an independent one.
Not that you should need convincing, but check out some live video I recorded from some of the artists that will be appearing at the festival this year.
N’Dambi, “Daydream” and “Call Me”
Yazarah, “Same Page”
Emily King, “It Was You”
