As a Washington DC native also born and raised in the Ledroit Park neighborhood, I’ve always heard Gogo music on the 7th and Florida Avenue corner. Growing up, my mother told me stories of how this corner has been a cultural hub for the city, playing GoGo music for 20+ years & being a historical center point for our DC Culture as well. Now in 2019, new DC residents are threatening to sue the owner “Don” for playing GoGo music outside of his store. As most of us know this relates to a bigger issue related to the rapid amount of GENTRIFICATION taking place in Washington DC. WE, THE NATIVE PEOPLE ARE OUTRAGED ABOUT THIS & WE WILL NOT LET THIS GO BY THAT EASY WITHOUT A FIGHT FOR OUR DC CULTURE. I’m doing what I do best which is using my drum to strike a message & get the rest of the community aware of this wrong doing to our good people so please share this or spread the word. Thank you !

@stablearts’ first exhibition, Dialogues, is wildly varied but still feels cohesive. There are 💬 typographic installations, 🎨 paintings inspired by childhood memories, and a working piano that plays 📻 radio stations when you press down on its 🎹 keys. See our story for more!
Wandering around the studios feels like you’re hopping 💫 dimensions and peeking into another 🌎 world. You never know if you’re going to walk into a room and see giant sculptures made of 🍭 candy-colored 🚗 car parts or if be greeted by a carpet composed of 🥚 egg shell slivers.
STABLE, an artist studio and exhibition space located right off the Metropolitan Branch Trail in Eckington, opened yesterday.
