Who hasn't met someone here under this clock? Before we had cell phones, we made plans in advance and stuck to them. If you were meeting your comrades in Georgetown, the corner of Wisconsin and M was the place to find each other - the epicenter of the neighborhood.
My extraordinarily talented friend Alan Kresse took these pictures in the mid 1970s.
Saturday the choices are myriad. Tone will blow your mind while Ruthie and the Wranglers, Jimmy Smooth and the Hit Time and the Rock-A-Sonics all have the dance scene covered. Too bad they aren't all in one neighborhood:
Tone @ DC9 (early show 7 pm)
Ruthie and the Wranglers @ Pearl Street Warehouse
Jimmy Smooth And the Hit Time @ JVs
Rock-A-Sonics @ Hank Dietle’s
