List of bands from DC public housing projects:

1) Free Form Experience, Arthur Capper Public Housing, early 1970s. Awesome!

2) Ward 8 Entertainment, Valley Green Public Housing (and Barry Farms Public Housing?), playing now. One of the members of the band sold me their CD "Waiting for Some Better Days" on Pennsylvania Ave, SE, a couple of weeks ago.

3) Junk Yard Band, Barry Farms Public Housing, early 1980s through 1990s.

4) Marvin Gaye, East Capitol Dwellings (teenage years).
