Today it is revealed that Beauty Pill is the secret "surprise musical guest" at this symposium on design and the punk spirit. This will be an intelligent and entertaining conversation between the exceedingly handsome and thoughtful Bill Barbot and the exceedingly handsome and thoughtful Roman Mars, as they explore and parse the ways in which punk ethics and aesthetics have shaped their work and worldview. Beauty Pill seemed to acquire an entirely new audience with "Describes Things As They Are," and much of that audience is unaware of our connection to Dischord and DC punk. But DC punk thinking and DC punk methodology is a foundational element in what we do and it has informed all aspects of our work. The fact that our music is sometimes lush and detailed and technological -- coming from a scene that valued economy and rawness and confrontation -- is, in my mind, a rebuke of orthodoxy. And what could be more punk than that?
ICYMI August 19, Beauty Pill will play U Street Music Hall as part of their Go-Go Residency. (Yes, we know we're not a go-go band. Please do not hurt our feelings.) We're playing with the masterful Be'la Dona, DC's only all-female go-go band. Very excited. Join us! http://www.beautypill.com/live
Last night, Aaron Harman — leader and arranger of the horn quartet playing with Beauty Pill tomorrow night — hit us with two very pleasant surprises. One: he presented a daringly weird and cool arrangement of “Black Kites” that is so creative we want to open the show with it. Two: the horn quartet he has assembled is *gender balanced*. Half women, half men. BOOM! We are yours, DC!
