    Three great local DC bands with roots all the way back to DC's punk and hardcore revolution! Denizens of Washington is a local DC psyche/punk/garage trio. Members: George Dively - guitar/lead vocals has been playing, writing and performing in the DC area since being a founding member of DC's Penetrators in the late '70s; Leo Shock - drums/vocals is classically trained with a background in Jazz; Jimbo Viner - bass/vocals whose earliest influences include the Dead, quickly became a part of the early punk scene in DC. The band's influences include everything from Iggy and Neil Young to the beat poets, Bebop, Mod and psychedelic music and players and garage bands of the '60s era. While always looking to the future, we can still appreciate bold experimentation during a time when music was more than just a product. Sister Ex, Baltimore/DC quartet known for high-energy performances, wears a Spirit of ’77 heart proudly on its sleeve. With sly asides to the electric twang of Crazy Horse, glam and Gothic Post-Punk and fueled by the songcraft of Singer/guitarist Claudia Neuman, the band’s sound has been likened to a mashup of The Clash and the Patti Smith group with a hint of Gang of Four. Sister Ex' other members are guitarist Anthony Piazza, bassist Jeff Weslowski and drummer Johnny Black, who have all been an integral part of the Sister Ex sound since the beginning; recently released the new singles and videos, "Religion" and "Kalifornia". 7 Door Sedan is hook-driven rock and roll with a dash of glam and punk attitude. Harmony and tight guitar interplay bring out the best in songs that have been compared to as a primary member of White Boy, one of DC’s earliest punk bands. The lineup: Glenn Kowalski on guitar and vocals, Ken Moss (Acrylix) on guitar and vocals, Josh Singer (Vampyre Bunnies) on bass, and Norman van der Sluys (Madhouse) on drums. In three years, 7 Door Sedan performed 40 shows in 20 venues throughout DC, Maryland, and Northern Va.
