A Really Cool Folk Concert with Art Receptions Before (Concert ticket required)

I was going to stay out of the V-Day Fray but this folk duo - Chatham Street - sounds too good and the night just fit together nicely. They're playing at an ultra-cool place called the Athenaeum in Oldtown Alexandria (201 Prince St.) this Thursday night at 7 pm, and the cost is just $10 - no fees. Here is the link to buy tickets. It's a small venue so it will be an intimate concert and tickets should probably be bought soon.

In the last 3 years, the husband-and-wife duo has won 19 songwriting placements, been live on NPR radio several times, and were nominated for two WAMMIE Awards in 2012 (DC's own version of the Grammys) for Folk Contemporary Group of the Year and Folk Contemporary Recording of the Year for their second recording "All That Mattered." Listen to their sound here. They've also opened for some famous musicians at places like The Birchmere.

We will meet - depending on your schedule - either at the Athenaeum at 6:45 or at the Torpedo Factory at 6 pm for their 2nd Thursday Art Night. This will be a good chance to grab some wine and snacks and chocolate before the concert. After the concert, we can try to get dinner if folks are up for it. It's obviously a crazy night but perhaps Le Madeleine or something on that scale might be available.

    I'm really sorry for being a no show. I had forgotten that I had committed to attend a meeting in Alexandria at 7 and cut it too close to go to the Torpedo Factory. It sounded like a great event and I hope you all enjoyed it.
    I hope to attend future activities

    My apologies for not making the event, a friend went into crisis mode with husband. "Nice guys finish last RIGHT?"

    We have a nice, small group for tonight. I'm looking forward to it! My number is[masked] if you need to call or text later. My plan is to get to the Torpedo Factory at 6, check out the Target Gallery and then maybe a couple others, and then walk to Athenaeum at 6:45. I will carry the Meetup sign.

    I'm a Torpedo Factory fan--unique art all around--and a folk music lover from way back (the 70s) so this night is right up my alley!
