A Local Favorite: MTV Push Artist of the Week

As I write this, I cannot help but fill with a sense of pride. I remember the day I met these guys; they were one of the opening acts for Valencia at the Ottobar in Baltimore, Md. in 2009. They were just three teenagers from Fairfax, Va. looking for some gas money to get to their next show.

Now, The Downtown Fiction is signed to Photo Finish Records and is MTV Push Artist of the week. The threesome has grown from playing hometown shows at Jammin’ Java (on the nights bassist David Pavluk was not working) to an international act. In September, they toured with We the Kings in Japan and noticed the cultural differences between American and Japanese audiences. Lead singer Cameron Leahy told MTV, “Everyone is really respectful and polite, and everybody will be rocking out to a song… then all of a sudden you finish and everyone is like—silence”.

TDF will be touring with The Ready Set and Allstar Weekend on the GLMR KLLS tour starting in February. The guys will be returning to Baltimore on March 6, 2011, and you can guarantee I will be there to support them.

Be sure to like them on Facebook and download their new holiday track “Keep Me Warm” for free tomorrow!

NOTE: Drummer Eric Jones promised me an ice skating trip (peer pressure does wonders) haha.
