Does Anyone Know the Man Who Drums and Chants at Night?
When I first moved to D.C., I thought I must be nuts, because I would wake up at 2:00am hearing drumming and a strange gutteral tribal chanting, but could never figure out where it was coming from. Eventually, the sound would fade away; but it would come back every few months. Now I know I’m not the one who is crazy.
I figured out that there is a man who walks around late at night (sometimes 14th street Columbia Heights) while banging on what might be a paint bucket chanting at the top of his lungs. It’s always mildly irritating when he wakes me up, but since he’s a walking one-man band, at least he eventually moves out of earshot, so it’s stopped bothering me as much.
Does anyone else hear this man late at night or know anything about him?
