Interview with The NRIs: DC Deli's Artist of the Month (August)

Interview with The NRIs: DC Deli's Artist of the Month (August)

NoVa based indie folk band the NRIs are a melting pot of the DC music scene featuring members from a variety of bands from the hood. So fans easily inched them up our recent poll chart, crowning them Band of the Month. We wanted to find out more about 'em, so got a hold of half the NRIs including Nayan Bhula, Audrey White, and Melanie Papasian. Here they tell us about Yamaha acoustic guitars, Fort Reno, and knowing someone who knows someone who knows someone. Now onto the interview... (Photo by Lisa Boggs)
