PitchBlak Brass Band is a Brooklyn-based 10-piece band whose style and sound represents hip-hop from the 1980s to present day. A collective of young musicians, composers and artists, PitchBlak embodies the contemporary and vibrant undercurrents of New York City. PitchBlak’s members have incredibly diverse musical backgrounds, allowing them to infuse hip-hop driven music with funk, rock, jazz and classical genres, resulting in a style as fresh as their dreads, shades and dashikis—rich brass harmonies, lyrical hooks, tongue-twisting raps, and rhythms that make your blood race.

PitchBlak has performed at such prestigious venues as Brooklyn Bowl, Le Poisson Rouge, 92YTribeca, Southpaw, The Shrine, Toronto's NXNE Music Festival, Vermont’s legendary Nectar’s, Albany’s Red Square, and took home first prize at the 1st Annual Bob Stewart Tuba Competition. In addition to performing live, PitchBlak trains and mentors young musicians in community outreach programs and classrooms throughout the country.

PitchBlak is set to release its debut album, You See Us, in fall 2013.

Art17 presents: Colorful Summer



Coldwell Banker Dupont
1606 17th St.  NW
Washington DC


Opening on June 27, 2013, Coldwell Banker will host Colorful Summer in their Art17 gallery (1606 17th St NW). The show, curated by Brian Petro, will host a group of 6 international, emerging, artists who all currently work in the Washington DC area. Colorful Summer will include the work of Fabiano Amin, Margret Kroyer, Ana Elisa Benavent, Lesley Clarke, Judy Giuliani and Emily Lane. The artists are from Brasil, Iceland, Mexico, Scotland and America, respectively, but all now call Washington, home. Each artist will show their abstract, vibrant, view of summer. The exhibition will run from June 27 through the end of August 20.

Local artist, Brian Petro, curated Colorful Summer and says that after “seeing how well their differing, yet unified, abstract styles complimented one another, I thought it would be great to bring them as a group to a new neighborhood of DC.” Petro, also a curator at Vastu and Avenue Settlement, is familiar with the Dupont and Logan neighborhoods and the local artists that build contribute the their creative communities. As an artist himself, Petro has always been committed to showcase unique, talented artists.

The six artists selected for Colorful Summer each bring a different, yet abstract, view of the hot, sticky, summers of Washington DC and abroad. In this show they explore form, line, layers and mediums to create a cohesive view connected by color. Featured artist Fabiano Amin calls the show a, “multicultural abstraction,” one that will truly bring varied perspectives to the hot summer months.

Coldwell Banker opened Art17 over a decade ago by Kevin McDuffe, the owner. His goal has been to open this office space to local artists to showcase their work. Recently, he brought in a curator for the space, Brian Petro. In the past, Art17 has featured artists such as Amy Flatten, Dylan Davis, and Matt Sesow.

The Fridge: Aniekan * HKS 181 Paintings




For It Was Written, opening June 7, 7 – 11pm, see the latest from the greatest DC street artists and muralists HKS 181 and Aniekan Udofia. 

Hip hop’s guiding principle of chronicling the culture of urban Americans has been replaced by an egocentric bravado rooted in fantasy. The paintings in It Was Written are born out of the artists' desire to document the importance of the commonly shared narrative to hip hop music. HKS and Aniekan borrow lyrics from the likes of Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest and The Last Emperor to create inventive paintings that re-imagine these classic songs in the visual art arena. 

DJ Nick tha 1da will spin at the opening.
