The Half Street Fairgrounds hosted the inaugural Capitol Groove Festival on Saturday, which showcased some rising talent in DC's music scene, like Drop Electric, Lightwaves, The Silver Liners, Redline Graffiti, and The Blackout Project. Other bands included The Weathervanes, Clones of Clones and DJ sets by Groove Merchant.

Guests had a variety of activities to indulge in at the concert, including cornhole, beer pong, noshing on food truck food and Pinkberry or just chugging frozen RBV's from The Bullpen.

The festival was put on by John Reardon and the team at Mus-X and Local Headphones, which will bring together fans, bands and venues in the area once their Web site launches later this year.

The crowd included a lot of elite DC private school grads, band groupies, and music enthusiasts.
