The Kids Are Alright
One thing DC does NOT have is places to take kids to see live music, but summertime opens up a lot more possibilities including the free Washington Folk Festival which runs at Glen Echo this weekend. If you haven't been to the park in a while, you'll be surprised at the restoration which is topped off with a big ole retro style neon sign and an old street car parked right out in front. (I used to go to the music events there in the 1970s when Glen Echo was pretty much abandoned and down to weeds and yurts)
The festival can get zoo-ey so go early or take a bike.
Also there's a rare chance to take the small fry to IOTA this Saturday at 5 pm for an all ages matinee with the NRIs who are celebrating their new CD "Playground." Check out "Across the River." It's one of my favorite DC songs. NRIS also play a "drinking age show" later that night with Light Arms and Step Pets.
