Arts Roundup: Steampunked Edition

Good morning! FotoWeek starts this weekend! Look for our preview later today, and for nuggets of coverage every day after that. I went to the pre-party last night at the Phillips and...well, alright, it was OK.  Though Worn Magazine's Josh Yospyn was shooting some pretty cool polaroids of guests, which I hope he posts. Had I [...]

Cirque du So Long: Why a Larger Stage Isn’t Good News for Palace of Wonders’ Sideshow Acts

It’s 7 p.m. on a Thursday, and a short round woman in a floral skirt is wheeling two battered suitcases along H Street NE. She stops beneath a painting of a happy dog and heaves a deep sigh. Then she pushes through the double doors of the Palace of Wonders and says hi to Brad, [...]

Put down all those fall previews and dwell in the now, baby, because if you sleep on Far Out vs. Hot Dang, you're snoozin' on life. On the left, as usual, are the mind-bogglers and the head-scratchers—as well as the sweet epiphanies and fond [...]

The Red Palace Is Almost Ready

If you wanted to see Xiu Xiu, Rocky Votolato, or Marnie Stern, you'd head to DC9 or the Black Cat, right?
