“We heard 8 or so shots last night. Nobody hit. Car window shot out. Neighbors and I saw a shirtless guy jumping backyard fences to get away on Georgia. Haven’t heard many shots this side of Ga. the last few years.”
Ed. Note: I couldn’t find a photo of Carter Barron in the flickr pool so please enjoy this awesome shot of Lynda Carter by Pablo Raw
The Carter Barron schedule for 2016 has been released. Looks like the format has changed – no more all-free events, instead weekly concerts benefiting Carter Barron and Rock Creek Park trails. Given how underutilized the Amphitheater has been in recent years (was told by park rangers it was due to sequestration), it’s probably a change for the better.
