National Cherry Blossom Festival — on now! (Image simulated.)
This week, my co-conspirators and I will mounting our second incursion into The Nation's Capital -- we'll be assembling at the Atlas Performing Arts Center for an 8:00 PM hit on Wednesday, April 4. Full details and tickets may be procured here.
Last time we were in DC (just over a year ago), it was for one of the most memorable double-headers in Secret Society history. We began the evening with a performance at Kennedy Center's Millenium Stage -- video evidence of this can be had on our YouTube channel -- after which, we joined Richmond VA's Fight The Big Bull for an underground show in an alternative venue, i.e., a house party in someone's basement. [This writeup (with photos) on CapitalBop.com captures something of the flavor of the event.]
As you might expect, the two crowds couldn't have been more different, but we of the Society pride ourselves on putting on a great show no matter the setting. Posh theatres or grimy clubs, cherry tree-lined parks or feral ghoul-infested Metro tunnels, it's all the same to us.
