I guess it’s supposed to be a cool vibe and give good ambiance. And honestly, it is actually a pretty good vibe. I have plants in my room, and they’re good. Sometimes things are trendy because they’re actually good, and that’s probably the case with house plants.
DC’s Smoke and Tea, and a duo of ambient producers put a bunch of nice little plants in the backdrop of their relaxing set for ROAM DC’s new streaming series, ROAM HOME.
ROAM is a great DC electronic music collective/organization that puts on shows in warehouses and other spaces in around the city. They worked to bring Boiler Room’s first-ever show to the sometimes culturally challenged city of D.C. (it does have culture, it’s just always getting papered over and pushed to the fringes by people hellbent on gentrifying every experience they possibly can). They have a couple of other streaming events planned with more to come.
If you like Smoke and Tea’s set, you can Venmo them at @bernard-farley and @patrick-blinkhorn. And if you want to support ROAM, their Venmo is @roamhomedc.
