Musical backline rental

Hey! I’m in a rock band that will be performing on RT in DC this coming December and I need to rent some backline for that performance.
Basically what I need is a guitar half stack, a bass amp and drum set.

If anyone has any leads, it’d be greatly appreciated!

Public Masturbating Man in Meridian Hill Park

Just wanted to let people know that there was what appeared to be a homeless man openly masturbating in the bushes next to me while sitting in Meridian Hill Park. It happened on the southern end of the park on the right side of the fountain in the little field surrounded by bushes. The man was black, wearing gray sweatpants, a black jacket, blue t-shirt and blue hat. I called the cops but not sure if they arrested him or took any action.

White Hyundai Elantra stolen in Bloomingdale

My car was stolen from T & North Capitol St. between 9:00 and 9:15 am today, Monday 9/29. Attached is a picture. It’s a 2007 white Hyundai Elantra, Maryland tags, license plate 2BM3690. Witnesses say they saw 2 black males enter it.

When last seen, it had an Oberlin College Alumni sticker at the top of the rear window, an NPR decal in the lower left of the rear window, an EZ Pass in the front window, and a yellow parking permit sticker that says “76″ in the driver’s side front window.

Please call the police if you see it.

Looking for home for Taz

My boyfriend and I are moving in together, and he is very allergic to cats, so it is with a sad heart that I am starting to look for a home for Taz. I rescued Taz from Rock Creek Cemetery one cold night four years ago when he was about six weeks old. He has grown into an enormous, sleek and friendly cat who loves to cuddle, chat, chase the dog, play with his stuffed animals, and lounge. He has one trick besides sort of coming when he hears the word “treat”: he can stand on his back legs and take the treats gently from your hand. He’s a bit like Goldilocks–not so catlike that he is aloof to his people, but not so needy that he has to sit on your computer keyboard or lap at every moment. In other words, a personality that is just right. He is not a furniture scratcher or a sprayer (you know what I mean). Taz loves to hang out with us in the fenced front yard while we sip wine on the porch, and he is a keen observer of all things outside the fence, but he is not an outdoor cat. He would be great in a multi-animal household or with kids, but he would also be fine in a quiet house. If you are interested in bringing Mr. Personality into your home, please email me at Karengw2003@yahoo.com.

AWESOME ROAD TRIP OPPORTUNITY: Blue Ridge Parkway, November

I’m taking a one-week road trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway in November. (http://www.blueridgeparkway.org) Stops will include camping, sight-seeing, nature walks, and visiting small towns from Virginia to North Carolina (and possibly Georgia if time/money allows). I’m looking for one or two companions who have a genuine love for adventure, outdoors, and would like to experience the unique culture and people of small southern towns as well as beautiful mountain landscapes. Travel dates would be some time between mid and late November — I’m flexible. In keeping with the spirit of culture-sharing, I’m extending this offer to foreign nationals first. Due to the possibility of shared sleeping accommodations females would be better suited for this excursion. Candidates should be comfortable spending long hours in a car, non-smokers, enjoy the outdoors, and have a true spirit of adventure. I would cover car rental, camping gear, and general travel necessities. Companions should be willing to contribute to gas costs, entry fees to camp sites/parks, and cover the cost of their own food. If you’re interested please respond here and I’ll get in touch with you. — Katie

P.S. Please pass on to any of your friends — students, colleagues, etc — who are foreign nationals and might be interested in this trip.

Increasing car break ins on Mozart Pl in Adams Morgan

My car window was broken last week and I’ve noticed increasing numbers of broken car windows on Mozart Place and Euclid in Adams Morgan. I’m taking pictures to document the increase and I encourage others to do the same and post them here. If you have thoughts for how to deal with this rise in vandalism and theft please post here.

Huge "Speedbumps" on North Capital St.

I recently relocated from Arlington to upper NW DC, and I often find myself taking North Capitol St when traveling to and from downtown. There is a significant stretch of road (shortly past the McMillan Park/Michigan Ave intersection, whether traveling north or southbound) that is quite literally RIDDLED with these abnormally large, oddly-sized “speedbumps” that are very uncomfortable to ride over. Even when going the posted speed limit or below, it seems that these large, irregularly-shaped raised mounds of concrete are enough to damage tires and/or knock one’s car out of alignment. When I first relocated, I was in the process of recovering from surgery, and every time I rode over the mounds it upset my healing wounds.

Why are these large mounds there and being permitted to remain? Surely, these are not legitimate speedbumps (which you don’t normally find on a major thoroughfare, as opposed to a side street). What can be done to get these fixed? Please let me know, forum members!

Relatively Quiet Restaurants

My parents are coming into town in the next couple of weeks and my boyfriend and I are taking them to dinner the night they arrive. My mom has been here many times over the years so I’m not looking for anything particularly DC. The main problem is that they are both very hard of hearing, which doesn’t mix well with a lot of restaurant noise, so I’m looking for recommendations of restaurants that are relatively quiet and moderately nice in the downtown, U Street, Columbia Heights, Admo area.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Burglary in Mt. Pleasant

On the afternoon of Thursday, 9/25 two guys broke into our home through our front window. Our neighbor saw them walking up our front steps and loitering on our porch. She called me, I remotely turned on our alarm system, and she called the police. They had about 4 minutes in the house during the phone call and me figuring out how to turn on our alarm. Once the alarm triggered, they left.

In those few minutes they took three iPads, an expensive watch, a baby monitor, and some money.

They entered through a cracked and locked front window. The lock is a plastic latch which they broke.

My neighbor videoed them and I was able to extract a close up of their faces from the video – police have both. http://htattonharris.weebly.com/

If you see these two, contact police.

Wedding Bands on Halloween

My friends are getting married just outside of DC on Halloween. Have any leads? They’re looking to go in one of two directions – 20s music or your typical 60s-present rock and country. Thanks POPers!

Places to work Outside in a relatively quiet area (near Co Hei, Petworth, Mt P?

I was hoping to find a place to work on my computer outside in the area that wasn’t directly on 14th and Irving area, where it’s pretty loud and not that enjoyable. I’m aware we’re in the city, but a quieter outdoor place (with wifi!) would be ideal.

I’m not interested in co-working spaces at the moment, plus I don’t know of any that even have outdoor space.

Cost of a pop-up in Columbia Heights?

Does anyone have any idea how much it costs to do a pop-up on a regular CH row home? I’d like to get an idea as to cost for the basic construction/electric/AC work of adding a bedroom and a bath – no bells and whistles. Thanks!
