After graduating from The College of William & Mary, Deedub Tezrah honed in on her musical talents and started DJing in the clubs of Washington DC and the surrounding metropolitan area. It was not long before her DJ skills matured and her fan base multiplied, winning the annual HRC DJ Battle at Town Danceboutique twice in her first two years in the scene. She has a monthly residency for GlittHER at Zeba Bar and guest DJs around the DC area for clubs, private events, and LGBT events.

“I tried out for professional soccer, but when I was cut, my mother advised me to get a real job, so I went into DJing.” –DJ Deedub Tezrah

The Fairfax native’s DJ style is as eclectic as her taste in music. She combines Top 40 with EDM as well as remixes older hits and even the obscure to create fresh, innovative sets. Her sound steadily evolves, and she plans to come out with an original, electronic pop album in the near future.
Kiyomi Valentine - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Kiyomi Valentine
Lead singer of Hunter Valentine, L Word season 3 cast member and LGBTQ super rainbow fighter extraordinaire.

Go in, nail 'em and go home exhausted. Such a simple victory has been the mission of rock bands for decades. It's a noble pursuit; a Do It Yourself mentality that compels musicians to obliterate with powerful songs propelled by live passion and vitality.

That's Hunter Valentine.

Blasting out their inimitable rock since the summer of 2004, Hunter Valentine has blossomed, establishing a devoted fan base via their self-financed eponymous 2005 EP and building on that foundation with their 2007 full-length The Impatient Romantic (True North Records). Razing crowds from coast to coast in their decrepit van, nailing select European and U.S. Cities over the course of 200-plus shows, the trio has garnered an international fan base as they build out of their native Canada. Hunter Valentine are now poised to break through with their gripping follow up Lessons From the Late Night (Tommy Boy/Fontana/Universal).

From the Executive Producer of THE L WORD® and the Creators of Project Runway and Top Chef comes the sexy reality series The Real L Word that goes where no show has gone before. Smart, gorgeous and fiercely successful, this fascinating group of LA ladies is ready to make the scene with their uniquely captivating stories and sizzling drama. From love and lust to family and career, these women know what they want and just how to get it.
Frankie & Betty - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Frankie & Betty
Frankie & Betty are a queer rock trio made up of Rachel Bauchman (singer, bass, guitar) /Jessie Strick (lead guitar) / Judy Bad (drums). Since forming in 2011 they've played numerous shows ranging from Roanoke Pride, Phasefest 2011-2014, GirlsRock! DC benefits, and have been heavily active members of the DC music community as well as occasional hosts of local burlesque shows because of their sheer tongue-in-cheek charm.
DC Kings - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
DC's Drag King Troupe
Marcus Webb - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Marcus Webb
While moving between the sonic realms of noir, pastoral, gothic, eastern, classic and modern, Marcus Webb (formally known as Michelle Webb) creates textural sound environments influenced by instrumental 50's and 60's guitar twang Americana plus global psychedelic music, 80's synth / soundtrack culture and 90's shoegazing. Marcus Webb studied music with guitar great Thomas Newman and Ted Dunbar and attended Oberlin Conservatory. Returning to New York he pursued a musical career working alternately as a recording studio assistant, session musician and club DJ. In 2009 he took his World Jazz band The Marcus Webb Trio (Subliminal Six Music) on a tour to Canada. Simultaneously pastoral and modern, spaghetti western and noir, electronic and organic, Webb’s compositions live in the landscape of an all encompassing American music skyline and conjures up images of everything from b-movie classics and big sky country with a seedy back door guitar style punch.
