There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
If you’re under the age of 40 and grew up listening to rock music in D.C., you probably remember WHFS as the sponsor of HFStival, a massive rock show held annually at RFK Stadium featuring sets by mid-’90s icons like Rage Against the Machine, The Offspring, and Soul Asylum. If your parents grew up listening to rock in D.C., they might remember a more progressive, freeform station helmed by DJs like Weasel and Damian Einstein, local icons in their own right. It’s that revered station that’s celebrated in Feast Your Ears, a new documentary-in-progress from executive producer Jay Schlossberg. In order to complete the film, the production team is raising funds with a benefit concert featuring two mainstays on the station during its prime: singer-songwriters Jonathan Edwards and Danny O’Keefe. Best known for his 1971 hit “Sunshine,” Edwards continues to tour the nation performing his folk-pop standards; O’Keefe’s music, including his memorable 1972 song “Good Time Charlie’s Got the Blues,” bends a bit more country. Together, they’ll dig up memories of Bethesda’s finest FM station. Jonathan Edwards and Danny O’Keefe perform at 7 p.m. at the Robert E. Parilla Performing Arts Center at Montgomery College, 51 Mannakee St., Rockville. $49.95–$99.50. feastyourearsthefilm.com.
