Discovery Mandy Weekly II

By Amanda Jagus

Valentine’s day is right around the corner, and love is in the air whether you like it or not. I forgot about it, myself, until I realized that my discovery weekly playlist was basically force-feeding me songs about love. Everybody might not have a significant other to spend V-day with, but that doesn’t mean that everybody has to stop listening to love songs. Whether you’re snuggling up with your boyfriend or the domino’s delivery guy, there’s a jam for you this February 14th.

Martin Courtney Live @ DC9

By Ben Begas

Backstory: Seeing live performances have been a big part of my time here in DC. I went to my first show back in October not really having been exposed to many different kinds of live music. I saw Saintseneca perform at Black Cat that night. Their music was a hybrid between sweet sounding folk and alternative rock. Their set was unlike anything I had ever seen. The band used instruments that I never even knew existed before that night, including a bouzouki and dulcimer. Before leaving the venue, I decided to talk with some of the bandmates.

Discovery Mandy Weekly: I

By Amanda Jagus

Mondays used to be my least favorite day of the week. It marked the abrupt ending of a relaxing weekend, and with it ushered in a new set of weekday stress. However, my hatred of Mondays changed when Spotify introduced Discovery Weekly playlists. Every Monday morning, instead of begrudgingly rolling out of bed, I now have the chance to listen to new music. The playlist is a blessing or a curse depending on what the music gods (or Spotify’s algorithms) have prescribed me that week.
