You made it to another weekend! This one is a doozy – there’s just too much going on! And, best of all, it’s PHASEFEST. And what better way to celebrate Phasefest than with the Google Suggest result for “lesbians” – I’m referring, of course, to “lesbianswholooklikejustinbieber.”
First, your PSAs!
Also all weekend: the (e)merge art fair, which is bringing some international art talent to DC. When was the last time you saw that outside of a government building?
Finally, Bradley (that’s me!) and Keli are starting a new party at Lost Society next Wednesday. I know that’s far out on your date planners, but trust me, you want to be there. It’s called HEART 2 HEART and it’s inspired by this moment:
See, told you you want to be there. RSVP RIGHT HERE.
Homo Hotel Happy Hour is at the Washington Hilton.
Some local artists think that, while pretty cool, (e)merge doesn’t really live up to its goal of spotlighting local talent. Their solution? An art show of ONLY local talent. It’s called the But Is It Art? Fair, and it should be awesome.
THIS IS THE NIGHT to GO TO PHASEFEST. They’ve got MEN and our pony pals Tayisha Busay playing. There will probably be glitter. Get there.
If you’re afraid of all that muff, try Beat City.
Hope you slept in because today is a doozy! First, your choice of two festivals:
The 17th St. Festival is sure to be full of gays preening, maybe with their shirts off. It’s like 1/2 Pride. And our boys Bil and Shea are DJing a very RAW set in the afternoon.
The Barracks Row Festival may be a little different, but it’s sure to be full of uniformed men and women celebrating the end of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. We asked, they told, and they’ve got a lot of pent up energy…
In the evening, one of our perennial favorite DJs, Natty Boom, is spinning at Big Bear’s cocktail hour.
Which should put you in exactly the right neighborhood to enjoy Art All Night: Nuit Blanche DC. It’s public nighttime art! Something seriously awesome that we seriously lack.
Finally, take it all off at RAW, which moves for the first time to its new home on last Saturdays at Cobalt.
Take it easy at the National Book Festival.
Guiltea and Overeasy have kept our Sundays a little hazy all summer, so make sure to celebrate the last Guiltea/Overeasy of the year!
Finally, just trust me when I say that you want to go see The Rapture at U Street Music Hall.
Oops, that one’s really the Biebs.
Not enough for you? MORE ON ALLCITY.
