Coming and Going
DC ROCKS, being the sentimental channel that it is, has been in mourning ever since the news last week that all of the Magruder's stores have been sold. This local grocery chain has been in business for over a hundred years, and had a damn fine liquor store to boot there at the Chevy Chase Circle. The good news is the Chevy Chase location will remain open for now, and the new owners have pledged to keep things as they are at least for now.
And more encouraging news; up in Columbia Heights The Pinch is a new little place on 14th Street which I hear has a decent stage and looks to be a cool little venue to see live music. Psychedelic garage band Blankus Larry is having their album release party there this Saturday. The band encourages you to come see them and drink heavily.
9 p.m. No cover.
