From a press release:
“As of this week, the vinyl version of ALB’s Rock the Stacks, a compilation album is for sale at several record stores across the city. The album, whose proceeds benefit the DC Public Library Foundation, includes songs by artists including Thievery Corporation, Furniteur, Warm Sun, Fort Knox Five, Benjy Ferree and many more. Several tracks on the album were recorded in the DC Public Library’s state-of-the-art recording studio, formerly located at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, which is currently closed for modernization. The vinyl version was produced by local vinyl pressing company, Furnace, located in Fairfax, Virginia, and each vinyl copy also includes a digital download code. Stores that are currently selling the record include, Red Onion Records, Songbyrd, Smash Records, Som Records and Proper Topper. The vinyl and digital download can also be purchased online at dcplf.org/rockthestacks. ALB’s Rock the Stacks came together in memory of Annie Lou Berman (ALB), an essential member of the D.C. creative community and board member of the D.C. Public Library Foundation, who succumbed to cancer last year. (more…)

I recently moved in to the Petworth/Brightwood area and recently had my bike stolen out of my yard. This is the first time I’ve had anything stolen in the city but know that its unfortunately common. Most concerning though was how close the bike was to the entrance to my house (via the back alley) and how comfortable someone had to be to come that close to the home.
Are these instances frequent in this area? What are others doing to prevent these kind of instances?”
Ed. Note: What’s that locking method that folks have mentioned in the past?
