DC music lovers,
We are kicking off the second of DC Music Salon on Wednesday, October 12th at 7pm with a visit to space… d.c. space! d.c. space was the place for punk, new wave, performance art, free jazz, poetry, independent films and all things avant-garde from ’77 to ’91 at 7th & E Streets, NW. The bar/restaurant was a center for innovative art and artists; twenty years later, numerous musicians and fans still say its closing has left an unfilled hole. space’s owner/founder artist Bill Warrell and the club’s booker, photographer Cynthia Conolly, as well as other key players will be on hand to tell us what was really happening from the inside. Great music, live footage, still photos, old calendars, and other first hand accounts will remind those who were there and educate those who weren’t: space was the place.
DC Music Salon?
Salon, noun, “a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine their taste and increase their knowledge through conversation.”
DC Music Salon is a free film & book series about music, featuring discussions with expert guests. We show films and speak with musicians, filmmakers, authors and other fellow music lovers. These aren’t lectures, and all are welcome to attend and join the conversation. Most meetings start with a quick introduction of a guest or topic, then show appropriate footage; we may discuss a relevant book and likely ask questions of our experts.
We usually meet the second Wednesday of even months from 7-9pm at the beautiful new Watha T. Daniel Library in Shaw, 1630 7th St NW. Facebook, http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=169317933118300, is the best way to learn more about DC Music Salon and upcoming events, or you can join our mailing list.
Washington, DC has a musical heritage second to none and our salon celebrates it. Spread the word and see you there!
