It’s been a bit since we’ve done this, hasn’t it? That was rhetorical.
With the Frederick Music Showcase Vol. 2 on the horizon, we’ll be rolling out four brand new exclusive Frederick Playlist Presents sessions on this very website over the course of the next month. Exciting, we know. This time around, though, we are coming to you live and direct from the Treaty General Store right here in beautiful downtown Frederick, Maryland (insert smile)! And in case you were wondering … well, yes. Each video will feature a Frederick Music Showcase artist (and perhaps some surprises down the road – just saying).
First up? The indomitable Freddie Long! He’ll be performing last at the Weinberg on Thursday, Feb. 18 (get your tickets now!), so we thought we’d release his super-duper-exclusive performances first. The above video is a take on his original song “The Punch Line.” The below video, however, is a cover of David Bowie’s “Young Americans” (we recorded these performances a couple days after the icon passed away, and Freddie was inspired). Both are radical. Both are worth your time.
Check back next week to see … oh, we aren’t giving away that secret yet. Duh. You’ll have to wait to find out who’s next! As always, a huge thank you goes to the fabulous Graham Cullen, who rocks the video cameras like no other, and Bill Green, who stayed out way too late to help us get through the night. Also, we’d be remiss if we didn’t thank the fine people at Treaty General Store for allowing us to essentially rearrange their entire store, all in the name of rawk (with a “w”). Hopefully, they didn’t mind.
