It was back in March when I first reported the scuttlebutt about a merger between Palace of Wonders and Red and the Black at 1210 – 1212 H St, NE. Just got an email that they’ll be launching this weekend:
“We are happy to announce, FINALLY, the opening of the Red Palace at 1210-1212 H ST NE. A combination of Palace of Wonders & the Red and the Black, the new venue will feature both sideshow, burlesque, in addition both local and national music artists. The larger, yet still very intimate space, will launch this weekend!
The first official event will be Saturday November 6 with the Dangerously Delicious Pies 8th Annual Pie and Rock-n-Roll Extravaganza with The Deadmen, Glenmont Popes, HR of Bad Brains, and Lazlo Lee and the Motherless Children. Doors @ 8pm Show @ 9pm – 18+ welcome”
If anyone checks them out be sure to shoot me an email with your impressions. I’m curious to see how the space looks.
