Last Thursday, the musicians came to town. During the day, the good folks at the Future of Music Coalition hosted the wildly popular band OK Go for some visits on Capitol Hill to talk about net neutrality and FMC’s Rock the Net campaign. To us YouTube fanatics, OK Go is famous for their fluid backyard dance moves and treadmill acrobatics. After leaving the Hill and before making way to their concert at Merriweather Post Pavillion, they made a pit-stop at FMC’s offices to spend some time with a few of their fans. I had the chance to chat with Tim Nordwind, the lamb-chop sporting bass player who was personable and very down-to-earth, and from what I understand, the whole band was equally as charming with policy makers.
Later that night, the Digital Freedom Coalition hosted its Band Showcase that I wrote about last Wednesday. Congress getting out late didn’t stop a good crowd from attending and listening to the great acts: Baumer, Exit Clov, and Jonathan Coulton. Below are some of the photos taken from the event–a great time was had by all.
