D.C.’s Lil Dream, who previously performed under his real name Darren Hanible, headlined Velvet Lounge with a slew of friends, collaborators and artists from all the area.

Jay Cousteau and El Cousteau made their presence known with an energetic performance that didn’t let up until the last song ended. P.G. County’s Jim Boy and Rezt, who also work together as OFFBUCKSFILMS, performed old favorites as well as recently released material. Producer/singer Good Intent’s set started off rocky, but he finally found his footing as the show went on. Lil Dream himself performed many of his tracks released since returning home last fall, including his self-produced “SwipeRixH EP.”
