Friday April 5

Mumbo Sauce Pop-up at 906 H Street NE (6-10pm)

If you think DC lacks culture then you have spent too much time on the Mall, or watch too much C-SPAN!  Mumbo Sauce, co-curated by Lauren Gentile of Contemporary Wing and Roger Gastman takes the viewer back to the iconic days of 80s DC subculture when Go Go and DC hardcore ruled the day.  Explore the era through posters, ephemera and photography.  This exhibition promises to be an eye-opener for newcomers and transport DC natives back to their adolescence.  For more information, click here.

The pop-up is located at 906 H Street NE
