Arts Roundup: Oscar Voting’s Over Edition
My colleague Jonathan L. Fischer reported yesterday that local band Tennis System is leaving D.C. for sunnier pastures in L.A. Can't say I blame them. The band's playing a farewell show at the Rock & Roll Hotel March 4.
As was widely reported yesterday, TBD is undergoing a major revamp. Again. But, troopers that they are, they keep on keepin' on. Today Ryan Kearney reports, via the Baltimore Sun, that Julia Louis-Dreyfus will be in town shooting the HBO pilot Veep for a couple of days, although most filming will take place in Baltimore.
