From 9:30 Club:

“Let this sentence serve as a “pinch to the arm” of sorts to let you know that the above artwork is indeed real. We know it’s 7am; you’re NOT dreaming! In celebration of Foo Fighters’ 20th Anniversary, Dave and the boys are bringing together so many of the groundbreaking American acts featured in their HBO docuseries, Sonic Highways, for one big 4th of July jamboree at RFK Stadium. Beyond the absolutely insane lineup, the all-day extravaganza features fireworks, a motorcycle rally, BBQ, and so much more. Long story short: You spend your 4th of July with the Foos and friends… you have your life rocked by maybe the best concert you’ll ever attend.

In other beer news – back in March we heard 1412 Hops & Vine would be opening in the old Indigo Frenzy boutique space by Trusty’s and Wisdom. Well they’ve since been renamed Pipetown Traders and are now open. Their twitter, @pipetowntraders, says:

“Local wine and craft beer store, with a selection that will make your head spin. We’re glass half empty kind of people, come see why…”

Anyone check out the selection?

From a press release:

“On Saturday, Oct. 25, hundreds of partygoers will join some of the 65,000 “residents” of the Historic Congressional Cemetery for the graveyard’s annual Halloween celebration. This fifth annual event raises money to support the Congressional Cemetery’s operations and mission to conserve the grounds and infrastructure, serve the community as a resource, and celebrate American heritage.

The spook-tacular celebration puts a distinctive spin on the traditional Halloween party as the cemetery is transformed into DC’s happiest haunt. The event features twilight tours of the cemetery grounds, a costume contest, access to the Public Vault, entertainment, and more. Guests will also enjoy food & drink in a heated tent when not out touring and mingling with some of the cemetery’s most notable residents, such as former first lady Dolley Madison, silent film actress Mary Fuller, and Lincoln assassination conspirator David Herold.

From @DCPoliceDept:

“Shooting at 2144 hours in the 200 block of 17th St SE. No Lookout”

A reader writes last night:

“I heard six shots. One of the two gun shot victims was shot in the chest. He was alive and transported to the hospital. Police are still here in full force looking for guns and suspects. So scary, I had just been out walking my dog about 10 minutes before this.

We have a problem house at the corner of 17th and Independence SE where 10 or so guys loiter everyday selling drugs, but the police turn a blind eye. It appears that the shootout started at that house and progressed down 17th towards my house. So sad and scary.”

Update from MPD:

“At approximately 9:45pm last night, two individuals were in the area of 17th & Independence Ave Se when they sustained gunshot wounds. One victim was struck in the chest area and transported to a local hospital in stable condition. The other victim was struck in the shoulder area and was treated and released on the scene.

There are no suspects at this time and the details of the events leading to this incident are still being investigated by the First District’s Detective’s Office.”

“We are now like everyone else. First pop up coming to the 1800 block of Mass in Hill East. I think this is going to be a double pop up. Front and back.”

“The building at 6th Street NE between L and Morton Streets. This building has been sitting vacant and idle for well over a year but finally there is construction underway!”

Looking forward to seeing how these turn out when completed.

Thanks to a reader for sending Day of the Dog At Congressional Cemetery [1801 E Street, SE], August 30, 2014, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.:

“Day of the Dog is an annual festival held at Congressional Cemetery in celebration of man’s best friend! On this day, the cemetery is open to all dogs, not just K-9 Corps members.

The 2013 event included activities for both pups and their people, including contests, raffles, games, demonstrations, and more. Pet vendors and services from the D.C. area were in attendance, as were local pet shelters with dogs and cats available for adoption! Live music was provided by Charlottesville band Red and the Romantics.

Admission is FREE, and tickets will be available for puchase for activities and the raffle.”
