Featuring: OWL LIKE CREATURE
Owl Like Creature started in 2010 as a side project from his band 8-break. After learning how to compose electronic music on various music programs he later started playing house shows in Greensboro, mainly at The Science House and that’s where he started to get known. Since then he has played at different venues and coffee houses. Recently in the summer of 2012 he has moved to Washington DC and has finished his self-recorded EP Sentimental. He plans to still continue his music.
Guest co-host: DWAYNE LAWSON-BROWN
Dwayne Lawson-Brown always has a hard time writing bios. The 28 year old SouthEast DC native finds inspiration in the community he serves, his family history, and the ever evolving realm of relationships. He’s the co-host of the NUSPA award winning poetry venue “Spit Dat” with Droopy the BrokeBaller. Dwayne is also a fashion designer, making a splash with his Crochet Kingpin line of scarves and accessories. His work has earned him articles in the DC Examiner, The Washington Post, as well as segments on WETA and BBCAmerica, and the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s “Emerging Leaders” Award. His personal goal is to be a good dad and a nice guy.
