** Lara Supan & Heather Mae at Baked & Wired – 7:30 pm
The DC SWAN Day Kick Off features a performance by D.C. based singer-songwriters Lara Supan and Heather Mae at Baked & Wired,1052 Thomas Jefferson St NW
Washington , DC. Supan is most well known for her unapologetic combination of musical styles and subject matter. “Supan’s voice has all the grit and guts of a farm girl and, improbably at the same time, all the velvety smoothness of a nightclub vixen.” (John Ellis, No Depression). Heather Mae is an imaginative lyricist with a powerhouse voice. L-Mag calls Heather Mae “the new queer Adele”. Mae breaks ground with her new social justice infused EP, entitled “I AM ENOUGH” (#60 – iTunes Pop Album) by shining light on touchy subjects not often heard in pop music.
