From The DC Department of Funk:

The DC Department of Funk is excited to announce our initial line up preview for the 2018 Day Fair, Music Festival and first-ever Showcase Concert. All performances take place Saturday, May 12 with the exception of our kickoff show collaboration the night before.

For the 5th year in a row the lineup includes some of the city’s best and most promising artists, as well as performers from around the country and world.

The 2018 festival will feature nearly 100 performances throughout the day taking place at the parade itself and nearly 30 other different performance area, venues and stages.

“Dear PoPville,

Found this flyer on my car and in my mailbox. In my eight years on U Street, this is a first. Kudos to MPD. Hope they find those a**holes. We love our LGBTQ neighbors.”

Ed. Note: I’ve seen these flyers distributed after homicides but this is the first one I’ve seen for an assault too.

Yesterday MPD released video of suspects assaulting two men on U Street while they “yelled homophobic slurs.”

A gofundme page has also been launched for the victims, which has raised over $11,000 in less than a day. Wishing both the victims a speedy recovery and hoping the reward offered expedites the capture of the assailants.

From MPD:

“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Third District seek the public’s assistance in identifying three suspects in reference to an Aggravated Assault offense that occurred on Sunday, April 15, 2018, in the 2000 block of 10th Street, Northwest.

At approximately 12:31 am, two adult male victims were at the listed location when they were assaulted by three suspects. During the assault, the suspects yelled homophobic slurs. The victims were taken to an area hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Members of our Special Liaison Branch are assisting with this investigation. The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating this offense as potentially being motivated by hate or bias.

Thanks to all who forwarded this disturbing report from the Washington Post:

“Two men were attacked in the District’s popular U Street corridor early Sunday by assailants who yelled anti-gay slurs, said D.C. police, who are investigating the assault as a possible hate crime.

Police said the victims were assaulted by three men about 12:30 a.m. in the 2000 block of 10th Street NW, near the U Street Metro station.

The victims were hospitalized with injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening — though little more was known about the attack.”

“Over the past three years, Whiskey Ginger has sought to bring great style to the U Street Corridor. Along the way, we’ve met a group of amazing customers, many of which are now considered dear friends. Unfortunately, the lease for the U Street location is about to end, and after a great deal of thought and careful consideration, we’ve made the emotional decision to close the shop as of April 22, 2018. The good news is, there’s still time to come see us! And, even after the U Street location closes, we will continue to serve our customers online through eCommerce channels.

As a way of saying THANK YOU for a great three years, we’re offering our loyal fans:
