Well, I didn’t see Maureen Bunyan this time but I did see lots of folks having a great time at the show. Bloombars of course is the great new spot on 11th Street next to Wonderland that bills itself as an underground “spontaneous” scene for art and music. It is arguably the coolest new development in the entire city. Despite opening an hour late, a quick power outage and an annoying fire alarm blaring across the street the evening had the same great vibe as the previous performances. There is a wonderful diversity among the crowd and the music of course is terrific. I unfortunately only caught the opening act before having to leave. Did anyone catch the headliners? How was your experience?
Just caught this from the forum: “Caught this just a few minutes ago- [Friday 4:15pm] this taxicab was literally in flames. Luckily there is a fire station close by and it appears the driver was able to get out of the car. Pennsylvania was/ might still be blocked off from Washington Circle to 20th Street.”
