Your friendly neighborhood #DCmusic blog and podcast Hometown Sounds is very proud to present the Beauty Pill Symphonette on Sunday June 24th for our June showcase at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage.

Beauty Pill is a Washington, DC band led by singer/guitarist Chad Clark. The band includes Basla Andolsun (bass), Jean Cook (voice/monome), Drew Doucette (guitar) and Devin Ocampo (drums). The band sprang from the DC punk scene, distinguishing itself with detailed arrangements and technological experimentation.

The band recorded a suite of songs in view of the public, as a commissioned art exhibit. The result is an album called Beauty Pill Describes Things As They Are.

For this Kennedy Center show, the band will incorporate a horn quartet, expanding to a 9-member ensemble Clark calls Beauty Pill Symphonette. They have only done this once before for a special 2016 performance at the Smithsonian Museum Of American Art.

“The horns bring a glow to the notes,” says Clark. “It’s subtle, but I love the sensation of it. The purpose of music communication. You’re communicating an idea or a feeling or a sensation. We value all three equally.”
