H Street NE has seen a lot of changes over the years. When my family lived there, almost a hundred years ago, it was a shopping district and a neighborhood full of new homes and a lot of immigrants- especially Greeks. My grandfather had a candy shop, but there were all sorts of stores, restaurants, bars and even a couple of little movie houses. H Street is now coming back with another bunch of bars and restaurants leading the way.
If you are familiar with Washington, but can't picture this area, it's only about 10 blocks from Union Station and there's a bunch of small bars right near 12th Street.
Check out the scene- ths Saturday night at The Red and The Black. A bunch of local bands are converging for 7 Door Sedan's CD release party
( I for one have been waiting for this one!)
Rambling Shadows will also be in on it with their new CD.
Dollar Bin (actually just Donald Keesing - solo) is slated to go first for a short set to kick off the madness, followed by Puptent.
Show starts promptly at 9 and the music has to stop by 12:30 a.m. Plan accordingly.
