“Chuck Brown Day is coming and it’s going to be GREAT!
Since Wednesday there has been a lot of buzz about Chuck Brown Day, scheduled for Saturday, August 22 at Chuck Brown Memorial Park. It seems to have begun with a Facebook event for the concert which had approximately 3000 RSVPs as of last week. While there are legitimate concerns about planning for an event of this size, it is important to understand that these RSVPs are not solid confirmations and in our social media-driven world, that number is nearly meaningless.
That said, there are legitimate concerns regarding crowd control, transportation, public safety, general noise and clean-up. I have been talking to many officials from DC Government since late Wednesday and I have concluded that the District of Columbia government is prepared to handle Chuck Brown Day. This will be a popular event, but I believe August 22 will be a fun day for our neighborhood and for DC. I can offer more detail about the plan in the section below. But know that I support this event and am very confident it will go smoothly.
I also want to be sure to note that when this idea was first raised at an SMD meeting at Langdon Rec Center several months ago, there was unanimous support at the meeting for this event and I believe the community continues to generally support Chuck Brown Day. I continue to support Chuck Brown Day at Chuck Brown Memorial Park on August 22, 2015.
If you have questions or concerns about anything here, please don’t hesitate to reach out to contact me online or even on twitter, @ANCNolan. Everyone is interested in this event going well and if you’ve got feedback we can use prior to the event, we would welcome it.
Notes and details of a recent planning meeting for Chuck Brown Day: (more…)
Thanks to a reader for passing on. Another reader writes via email with the Facebook event page for Chuck Brown Day:
“My neighbors are straight-up livid at the idea of 3k people coming to the hood, but I think it’s pretty cool, and a good chance for people to familiarize themselves with our part of town. Hopefully they don’t succeed in getting the event moved or canceled. I assume parking will be rough if that many people actually attend, though, so people should probably take transit if at all possible.”
This rental is located at 3105 24th Street, Northeast. The Listing says:
“Great Home For Rent *** Completely Remodeled *** New Paint, Carpet and Appliances *** Features 4 Bedrooms with 2 Full Baths, Hardwood Floors, Fireplace, Eat-in Kitchen, Full Basement, Wrap Around Front Porch, Off Street Parking. Fort Torten Metro 1.2 Miles Away and Bus Stop Located at the Corner.”
“Go-Go, a subgenre of regional contemporary music that originated in Washington, D.C. during the mid 1960’s, is celebrated in this memorial for Chuck Brown, the legendary “Godfather of Go-Go.” When Chuck Brown passed away, the D.C. community yearned for a civic space where we could honor his musical legacy. This design, second in a series Marshall Moya Design has proposed for the D.C. government, incorporates photo mosaics of Chuck Brown from performances throughout the history of his career in a memorial park setting. MMD’s landscape design establishes an environment that captures the essence of this iconic musician with quintessential Washington, D.C. plantings of the region by using cherry blossoms and magnolia trees throughout the site.”
I rent a studio at Off The Beaten Tracks Warehouse, a new art space in Langdon Park, just down by the railroad. The former train depot, post office, and warehouse has been renovated into an amazing space with painters, photographers, fashion, letter press, florists, metal workers, furniture makers, jewelers, a kosher wine distributor, and an enormous SLAMMIN’ antique store, the likes of which hasn’t been seen in DC in decades. They’ve even built an incredible roof deck and they (we) are hosting an open house on May 10, from noon-4pm.”
