Cutting vocals in the woods behind his college dorm. Mixing in the backseat of a sedan. Sneaking into the music department after hours to teach himself to play new instruments (and sneaking out before the faculty arrived in the morning). From the start, Mobley's work has been marked by solitude, ingenuity, and a drive that could only be called obsessive. Whether you experience his music on record or at one of his live shows (on stage, he's electric), the passion is palpable. Mobley grew up all over the world, from the Spanish Mediterranean to the California coast. Perhaps it's because of this itinerant childhood that he finds it so hard to sit still.

Over the last few years, he's composed dozens of pieces for stage and television (with placements on HBO, Fox, and NBC), played 200+ national tour dates (with the likes of Phantogram, JUNGLE, Mutemath, Robert Delong, & Wavves and at festivals like SXSW, CMJ, Savannah Stopover and Float Fest), and recorded (then scrapped) two whole albums in pursuit of the songs that would become his forthcoming full-length debut, Fresh Lies. Mobley wrote, produced, and played every instrument on the album. The music -- which Mobley calls "post-genre pop" -- defies easy classification, drawing liberally (often simultaneously) from an array of musical traditions. He's equally at home on a playlist next to The Weeknd and TV on the Radio alike, while his electronic, dub-dabbling production style calls to mind the intricate work of artists like James Blake and Thom Yorke.

This summer and fall, he's touring as a one-man band, singing and playing keys, guitar, bass, drums, and samplers. He's spanning the United States and Mexico in support of his newest EP release, Some Other Country, out now on Violent Films.
Redline Graffiti
Redline Graffiti
In the same way that windy days are like Viagra for flags, Redline Graffiti is a DC based quartet that melds a contemporary Alt r&b sensibility with elements of indie rock with the result being a very textured and distinct sound. Described as “somewhere between Frank Ocean and Passion Pit” by Blisspop and more concisely as “indie rock newcomers” by the Washington Post, the foursome’s brand of music has helped to establish them as a staple of the live music scene in the district.

Since its forming 2011, Redline has opened for such acts as: Jesse Boykins the 3rd, RDGLDGRN, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, Amadou and Mariam, Starchild (the guitarist for Solange Knowles) and Emily King. They’ve consistently been a local presence on large festivals hosted in Washington such as ‘Trillectro’ Festival in 2014 and ‘Charged Up' Music Fest in 2015. In March of that year, their music made its television premiere with the single 'End of the World’ from their debut EP, ‘About and Because’, being featured on BET’s ‘Being Mary Jane’ and In March of 2016, they made their official debut at SXSW.

Redline Graffiti has crafted and released four EPs to date, (About and Because, Space and Water, The Drill, End the World Plus) and is currently recording their debut album, ’The Mere Souls’ to be released this year.
The alt-rock duo, , is the project of high school classmates Matt Porter and Darien Saiidifar. The two were a part of separate acts in the Northern Virginia music scene before reuniting after college in 2017. With a foundation of strong songwriting, the energetic performers ride on their emotions to connect with their crowds.

Their debut EP, Exits, was released in 2015.
