Music Monday: St. Lucia

I'll admit, it's been a while since I've gone to a concert, which is why I was excited to swing by one of the Capital Fringe Festival events this past Friday night. There was a great energy in the air and it seemed well attended. All this time I've wondered where DC has been hiding it's funky, creative side, and now I know.

Speaking of great energy, I'm currently listening to Brooklyn-based South African musician Jean-Philip Grobler, otherwise known as St. Lucia. Whether you're stuck in the office or taking some time off to enjoy the beach this July, his peppy, 80's-esque songs get me moving no matter the environment. He's touring this fall, so check him out on Twitter or Facebook for more info.
