WE UPDATE our homepage FEATURED gallery a few times a week (ft. imagery from the #aCreativeDC feed and beyond), and weekdays we feature a PHOTO OF THE DAY from the feed proper – check it often. Above (and currently living on the homepage) , we can't get enough of this incredible portrait of Afrovelvet's Malissa, by Hype Creative's Mike Meadows. Applause all around.
GOING OUT? The Tilling Phase closing party is a-goin on. Head to The Fridge for Hipster Fascism, and to Furthermore to meet + greet the Quantum Fiction show.
STAYING IN? READ UP: 2 Days With NPR's Bob Boilen at Washingtonian Mag; Is Prince the best person who has ever done this whole music thing? at The Washington Post (spectacular sentence: "he wore a black tunic that looked leather, but flowed like silk, which means it might be made from a fabric exclusively available to Prince"); and we're excited to sit down with our copy of It Ain't Easy, a short story collection by Kesia Alexandra about growing up in the city. Stoked to have found out about it via the #aCreativeDC feed.
