The DC Society of Art Rockers (that splash screen on their website will tell you instantly whether you’ll like what they do or not) in an arts education nonprofit that has been sponsoring and calendaring progressive rock events around the area since 2005 —-everything ranging from uber-retro proggy-prog to more experimental out-rock. Yesterday they announced that they’ve received a grant from the Arts Council of Fairfax County. Which is great news, although when I investigated the Arts Council website, it turns out the grant is for a grand total of $360. In comparison, the Washington Balalaika Society‘s grant? It’s for $30,000.

Still, there’s something to be said for getting your foot in the door.

DC-SOAR’s next show is local acoustic guitar trio Might Could at Bossa Bistro on December 5.
