Sometimes, when they’re not too busy hosting/organizing a showcase of DMV-area talent* , local musicians like Alex Vans get a chance to perform solo at one of DC’s better-known music halls. Tuesday night, Vans will take the stage at the Velvet Lounge (915 U Street NW) at 8 p.m.

Vans is a self-proclaimed troubadour with a deep voice, simple lyrics and confident stage-presence. He lets the music speak for itself and doesn’t try to dominant a live performance with too much talk, akin to the likes of a young Bob Dylan.

For a sample of Vans’ work, check the video after the page break.

*Alex Vans is now the organizer for Pass the Guitar.

  1. I have observed that online education is getting preferred because getting your degree online has turned into a popular alternative for many people. Quite a few people have certainly not had a possibility to attend a normal college or university although seek the raised earning potential and a better job that a Bachelors Degree provides. Still other folks might have a college degree in one discipline but would choose to pursue some thing they already have an interest in.
