Need some more punk in your summer? Tired of battling the DC heat without A+ indie music?
Sounds like you should join Rorschach Theatre on a field trip to Fort Reno!
The Fort Reno Concert Series is a free, family-friendly outdoor music series in Tenleytown with a 50+ year history. Federally funded concerts featuring blues and psychedelic acts began at Ft. Reno in 1968 as a means of soothing community tensions after the MLK riots that year. In the late 70’s the punk and hardcore sound took over and in the 80s and 90s the concert series was a centerpiece of the DC Punk scene. While the federal funding ended in the 90s, the concert series, produced by an all-volunteer staff endures as a quintessential Washington summer experience.
Bring a chair to sit in, a blanket to picnic on, and a baby or dog (if you have one). Food and non-alcoholic drinks are welcome and there’s usually an ice cream truck nearby.
Tenleytown metro on the Red Line or street parking in the neighborhood.
This event is FREE!
When: Monday, July 15th 7-9:30pm
