Locals You Should Know: DMV Music Released In June

June was another good month for our local bands across the DMV. Each month we try and feature a smattering of the music they release to give you a taste of the talent we have in our great states. We hope that you enjoy this list as much as we do, and who knows, you might find your new favorite local!
