Where we talk about stuff (happening in and around D.C.) we didn’t write about but is still something you may care to get all riled about and comment on. So, without further ado – today, in other D.C. media sources:
- PSA: The Hirshhorn’s new one-time-only Song 1 installation is opening TONIGHT. Trust us, it’s going to be AMAZING.
