From and email:

“Were you at the Howard Theatre? Did you perform there? Were you in the audience? Waiting by the stage door? Skipping school to come to a matinée? Come to the DC Music Salon at the Watha T. Daniel Shaw Neighborhood Library on Wednesday December 8th and bring your photos, posters and memories. Dr. Bernard Demczuk, Howard Theatre Community Committee chairperson, and Blair Ruble, author of “Washington’s U. Street: A Biography” will lead an informal discussion. There will also be a screening of the documentary, “Howard Theatre: A Century In Song” and James Brown and the Famous Flames performance from the 1964 T.A.M.I. Show. The Watha T. Daniel Shaw Neighborhood Library is located at 1630 7th St NW near the Shaw/Howard University Metro Station. The event will begin at 7 p.m.

    Looks awesome, and I really like the original-style detail work (crest at top and arches over doorways)
