Last night my friend Mary and I checked out open mic night at Northside Social in Arlington, VA. It was hosted by Margot MacDonald, a bright shining star who sings, plays guitar, loops things on a pedal and creates a beautiful whirlwind of musical energy. I checked out her website and was amazed that she is but 19, and a total pro. It was a nice open mic, too. Look forward to hitting a few more in town before I leave DC.
