Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980s is the first exhibition to explore the thriving underground of Washington, D.C., during the 1980s, giving visual form to the raucous energy of graffiti, Go-Go music, and a world-renowned punk and hardcore scene. Ephemera, photos, flyers, posters, records, newspaper clippings, stage clothes, instruments, video loops, and much more, all made largely between 1980 and 1992, will fill the Corcoran’s Atrium and Rotunda, bringing the era to life.
Also on view: Shooting Stars: Publicity Stills from Early Hollywood and Portraits by Andy Warhol.
Admission: $10; 62+ $8

We will go to the brand new The Bistro at Courtyard, Foggy Bottom. The hotel opened on Monday, Feb. 18 and we will be the first ever large group at The Bistro. It is a three-block, 10-minute walk along E Street from the Corcoran to The Bistro at[masked]th Street, NW. Our group will be seated at several tables. There will be one check per table.
