Ladles and jellyspoons,
Mad madness this weekend.
You may have seen our Friday, June 13th pick on DailyCandy today--sorry! We really try hard not to do that, but how, how, how could we not remind our lovelies about the opening of gelato swami Dolcezza's Bethesda location! We routinely freak out about their sexy flavs. Highlights include cardamom and mojito!
You better not have to work on Saturday, June 14th, because several things are happening.
Access to Life opens at the Corcoran. (I am going to go ahead and copy the description from their site; it's so nicely written.) In 2007, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria initiated a joint project with Magnum Photos to graphically document the positive impact that free antiretroviral drug treatment is having on the lives of millions of AIDS patients around the world. ... Access to Life is an artistic and educational response to the lifesaving success of this effort. ... In India, Haiti, Mali, Peru, Russia, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland and Vietnam, the photographers created visual chronicles that encompassed their subjects’ lives both before and after drug treatments. Intense, right?
Moving on to nightlife! Hypnotic band Battles annihilates all that you thought was holy at the 9:30 Club along with Baltimore freak-flag-flyers Thank You.
If you prefer dancing to losing your mind, you could attend The Soulfuck at the Black Cat. I have never heard of this party, but all of the songs on their MySpace were pretty tight. (The Express wouldn't print its full name. Lame!)
Say goodbye to Artomatic on Sunday, June 15th! This visual free-for-all goes into hiding for another year.
Stay tuned for next week: independent films abound with the start ofSilverdocs at the AFI and Eames move night at Design Within Reach!
