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.
Some of the programming high-lights in the approx 400 person capacity space include:
- the official opening party tonight (free)
- Listen Local First presents Record Store Day Showcase on Saturday
- GoKateShoot’s The WW Club on Thursday, April 26th
- All Things Go Showcase on April 27th
- Special Event hosted by the Popal Group, owners of Napoleon Cafe + Cafe Bonaparte and Alliance Française on April 28th
- and so much more (make sure you check out their website for more details: http://thewaterstproject.com/)
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.
