The Spotlight | Unlike Pluto at U Street Music Hall (May 18, 10:30pm)
Unlike Pluto (aka Armond Arabshahi) began teaching himself how to play piano at the age of 5. His obsession with music lead him to play the guitar, drums and just for the heck of it, the clarinet. With his knack for learning musical instruments, Pluto began navigating different genres of music starting with rock to screamo to pop and most recently, electronic/dance music. From garnering over 20 million plays on his Soundcloud to landing a Hulu commercial, 2015 was a solid year for the up-and-coming producer. After being included in Billboard’s “Dance artists to watch”, 2016 began prominently for Unlike Pluto – one can only imagine what else he has in store.
