Hey kids,

Quick programming note: we're taking a rare day off from our WPFW show this week, so that we can take advantage of one of more of these (event 1 - event 2) events that are happening around DC on Thursday night. I'd usually never leave you hanging like that, but I've been trying to see one of these cats perform for 14 years, and haven't succeeded yet... maybe this time's the charm. Tony Carr will be holding it down with a two-hour edition of "Rhythms of the World." Enjoy!

(How did Thursday get to be the night that all the good events happen? We picked that night for the radio show because it was supposed to be dead as far as stuff happening in the streets... oh well.)

While on the subject of cool things happening in the DMV (I could swear we were using that term for a decade before it blew up last year), check out the "Recognize: Hip-Hop and Contemporary Portraiture" exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery, on display now through October 26, 2008. Word to hip-hop getting some Smithsonian love, and with their ongoing initiative to collect more hip-hop artifacts, there's hopefully more to come. Oh, and if you manage to make it through the NPG before March 3rd, head upstairs and peep the "Let Your Motto Be Resistance: African-American Portraits" exhibit.

And I'm out like The Awakening...
