Another Museum Grand Reopening!

Here is a flickr set by Morten Arstad Foto of the reopening of the Museum of the Bohemian in Amsterdam this past August. The set includes photos of the move and the party afterward. Again the museum moved and there was another party, April 17th of this year. The museum moves four times a year, a roving museum with a gaggle of curators.

If I were in Amsterdam, I would go there.

Holy Smoke!

Gin Wigmore
If I wasn’t already committed (that’s another story), I would be going to the National this evening to see singer songwriter Gin Wigmore. Born in New Zealand, Wigmore’s debut album, “Holy Smoke,” recorded in Hollywood last year is causing quite a stir.

If anyone goes, let me know how it was.

It seems we’ve been waiting forever, but the wait is just about over.

This weekend the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is celebrating its’ Grand Reopening. The Boulevardizen lists the line up of all of the free activities Saturday and Sunday.

The Virginia Museum is one of the great things about Richmond. Support it and enjoy it, it belongs to all of us.

9:30 is 30

That’s right the 9:30 club (originally at 930 F Street) in Washington DC is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Last weekend the Washington Post posted an online article with video clips and interviews. The Post also has a print article in the April 18th issue of the WP Magazine, a tribute to the 9:30 club, a pioneering music club in DC that helped foster the music scene in the early days. Thanks to Scott B. for the heads up.

The last show I saw at the 9:30 Club was the Dead Kennedys sometime in early 1981 I believe. I saw the Orthotonics, 1/2 Japanese, Pere Ubu, Urban Verbs, Tiny Desk Unit, and I am sure there were many others, but that is all I can recall at the moment.
