In case you missed my coverage of Brightest Young Thing’s pop up on DCist, they will be opening an anti-pop-up pop up starting Thursday and running through June 17 at the vacant retail space located at 2213-2217 14th St. NW, where George’s Carry Out, as well as an old DDOT office used to be.
What will the space encompass? Much like BYT itself, it will feature art, music, and booze. They’ve booked synth-pop brothers Bluebrain, DJ Chris Burns, local electro-pop band Painted Face, and rapper Rye Rye. Additionally, Art Whino’s international arts event, the G40 Summit, will be a part of the space takeover, showcasing work from a few dozen artists. There will be live music, fashion events, art talks, standup comedy, etc. mostly for free or on the cheap.
