Park Snakes:Through dedicated performances of powerful and well-crafted sets, DC’s trio Park Snakes (formed by Nenet, Jason Coile and Van Hillard) finds their true motivation opening a provocative, yet productive, dialogue with audiences. Lyrics tackling on alienation, ambiguity, desire and the possibilities of love float on top spiky riffs and propulsive drums, bringing together the swamp and the city untold: a tale of rock noir.
