Tuning in from Washington, DC is Garrett, a twenty-something that enjoys good coffee, candlelit dinners, and longs walks on the beach. With interests not only in house music, but also indie and alternative, you'll find him anywhere there is live music, from the front row of Total Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs to a mellow night with Bear's Den. Check in for coverage from a few shows and festivals in DC, and tweet any recommendations to @GLHoppin.
