ToDo ToDay: American Landscapes and the History of Fort Reno

The open road is so quintessentially American that it verges on cliché. The Smithsonian American Art Museum exhibit “Landscapes In Passing” follows this well-traveled route. The most engaging images come from Steve Fitch, in part because they’re carefully thought out rather than happenstance. The exhibit includes a few too many of Fitch’s images of a [...]

What’s the Washington Bach Consort Doing at Fort Reno?

The strangest thing at this summer's Fort Reno concerts won't be Ian MacKaye singing the same song twice. While the free, outdoor music series has its usual mix of punk, hardcore, and indie rock in this year's lineup, tonight it's throwing something of a curveball: Bach.
Like any local act trying to play Fort Reno's rickety [...]

Photos: The Evens @ Fort Reno

Yesterday evening, a pretty substantial crowd turned up to see The Evens open the 45th annual Fort Reno Summer Concert Series. It consisted of the usual mass of families, old people, young people, and dogs, with an extra helping of members of D.C. bands past and present (Deleted Scenes, Deathfix, and Youth Brigade, among others)—with a [...]

ToDo ToDay: Woody Allen Double Feature! Fort Reno Starts!

While the DMV is teeming with free outdoor movie screenings—providing its residents perhaps too many opportunities to indulge in Whole Foods cheese wheels—this year’s schedule has one glaring exclusion: Woody Allen’s Annie Hall. Luckily, the mensches over at the Washington D.C. Jewish Community Center have rectified this injustice with “Double Take: Woody Allen,” a two-week [...]

Many have wondered in [...]

Is Buffalo Swagger-Jacking D.C. Punk?

There is now a club in Buffalo, N.Y., named after Fugazi's "Waiting Room"—unless, that is, it's named after Genesis' "The Waiting Room." Buffalo News music critic Jeff Miers is betting on the former:
“But I don’t sit idly by/I’m planning a big surprise/I’m gonna fight for what I want to be/And I won’t make the same [...]

ToDo ToDay: Whores’ Glory at E Street Cinema

In the third installment of his globalization trilogy (the capper to 1998’s Megacities and 2005’s Workingman’s Death), Austrian director Michael Glawogger offers an engrossing triptych of prostitution in three cities that harbor a thriving flesh trade. In Bangkok, Thailand, Glawogger speaks to a group of women who work out of an astonishingly mechanized brothel called The Fishtank, [...]
