Experiencing a Meditative Ecstasy With Dustin Wong

By Raul Zahir De Leon

Since wrapping up his time as guitarist in Baltimore’s Ponytail, Dustin Wong has certainly kept busy. Last year, Wong released his 3rd record, Meditation of Ecstatic Energy, completing the trilogy of solo guitar compositions. Featuring complex arrangements of guitar, voice, and loops, the album builds on concepts that Wong has explored in previous releases, yet manages to wander down some unexpected paths.

We caught Dustin when he was in town this past fall, playing a mainstage show at the Black Cat. Check out this sampling of his set, in advance of his return to DC in April.
