Jonathan was the inaugural guest on Izze Gibson's first edition of her new podcast, SoundinFive. Jonathan chose 5 songs to listen to and discuss:
The Beatles-Strawberry Fields Forever (Take 26)
The Beach Boys-Surf's Up
KNOWER-Things About You
District 97-All's Well That Ends Well.
Izze asked some fantastic questions. Highly recommended listening!
The above photo was taken at Scout Bar in Houston, TX on February 14th, 2017 by Jim Wilkinson (you can see more HERE). This was the first and only time D97 has played Houston, and I must admit that I didn't really know what to expect in terms of crowd response (I'd never been to TX at all before that day). To my delight, Houston (and Dallas the following night) ended up being a major highlight of our Tour To The Edge.
Check out a fantastic appreciation of D97 from a Grecian perspective, as well as a new interview with Jonathan at https://rockoverdose.gr/district-97-story-new-dvd-exclusive-interview/.
