In what is shaping up to be a pretty magical art spring in DC, the No Kings Collective teamed up with the Popal Family and organized an eleven day pop-up art/music/style/tech experience in an abandoned garage space on Water Street in Georgetown which, according to the jam packed schedule, is going to be the #1 reason for BYT readers to trek over to the streets that are not in their teens.

The space will be open daily through April 29th from 1pm to 7pm with nighttime programming every evening, aside from Mondays and Tuesdays.

Friday 10/28
The Bentzen Ball Presents: Picture This! @ The Kennedy Center Millennium Stage
$0 / $0
Millennium Stage shows are free and happen at The Kennedy Center. More info here: What is Picture This!? PICTURE THIS! is a new show from Brandie Posey & Sam Varela: two girls who want to push the boundaries of what a comedy show can be. Picture This! is a live comedy show with stand-ups, voice actors and more performing while they are drawn live by some of the best animators, cartoonists, and other artists in the biz! The comedians don’t know what the animators are drawing and the animators don’t know how the comedians will react. It may be weird. It may different. But it will be FUNNY!

And what will happen to the Water st. project space afterwards? The Popal family (that owns Bonaparte and Napoleon restaurants) are planning their next eatery here. And they’ll start build-out only days after the festivities of the Water st. project end – so catch it while you can.
