“In anticipation of their upcoming album release, DC indie-rock band, Grogan Social Scene is throwing a DIY party. For the event, Grogan Social Scene is collaborating with local artist, LA Johnson, as well as local craft brewer, Kyle Gildea. Johnson will be exhibiting pieces of art inspired by the songs on Grogan Social Scene’s upcoming album, Conceptual Arrangements, while Gildea will offer up several selections of his home-brewed beer in commemorative bottles designed by Johnson. The evening, which has been titled The Lamont Street Collective Summer Bash, takes place on Saturday, June 28th at the Lamont Street Collective (1822 Lamont Street, NW) beginning at 8pm. Opening for Grogan Social Scene is local band, Peyote Pilgrim.

Conceptual Arrangements is Grogan Social Scene’s second full-length album and is set for release in the fall. “We thought this would be a nice opportunity to preview songs from the upcoming album while spotlighting a great local brewer and an amazing artist,” says band founder, Thomas Grogan. Grogan Social Scene is a collective that changes and rotates its lineup on any given night. For this performance, Grogan will be joined by several members who also show up on the album including Erika Seberhagen, a former member of Once Okay Twice, whose violin is now an integral part of the band’s sound.

DC-based artist, LA Johnson, graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2009. She has lectured at George Washington University and Artisphere and has held exhibitions in Washington, DC at The Dunes, Hole in the Sky, Jojo’s and Mid City Café. Most recently she has become the Art Director at The Intentional.

Local Brewer, Kyle Gildea, has crafted several unique beers for the event including, Smokey Whiskey Barrel Stout, Belgian Caramel Wit and an English Brown.

Opening band, Peyote Pilgrim, is an indie-blues band from DC.

Lamont Street Collective, a community space that has been devoted to supporting art, activism, social justice and fun rock shows since 1975, will host the event.”
