This Saturday, the Summer Spirit Festival hits Merriweather Post Pavilion bringing huge names like Ms. Lauryn Hill, Janelle Monae, Raheem Davaughn, Talib Kweli to the city.
But, what DJ Flexx is most excited about is the fact two big go-go bands right now will be taking the stage: the Backyard Band and the Junkyard Band. In fact, he even asked JY to come into the studio to talk about the upcoming performance.
Both bands will hit the stage at the same time, something they’ve done previously and ended up “killing the after-party.”
After 34 years, the band is still making waves in the DMV and nationally, spotlighting the best of go-go music and repping the city.
It’s guaranteed to be a good time adding a massive entertainment portion that will blow crowds away. “We have to show people we love our own music,” the band says of their live performances. “Don’t come see Junkyard, come party with Junkyard.”
