Banned In DC

Wow. Days after we got word about the struggles of DAM! Fest and Six Points, we now learn that the Fort Reno Summer Music Festival is off, indefinitely, because of arsenic in the soil. Did the Loved Ones play an unsupervised gig or something? Last year, the most dangerous thing I came in contact with at Fort Reno was the dander from Ana's puppy dogs, and Clarinex cleared that right up. Anyway, nobody seems to know what's going on, though the usual sorts of ANC killjoys are suspected of having a hand in it.

At any rate, it's an understatement to say that this is a real blow to typical summer enjoyment. Hopefully, an alternative venue can be found and the music can return to the park once it is de-arsenicized. In the meantime...Rock-n-Romp, DC looks to you as our last hope!
