Free For All: Sweden and Sound Clash
Find out what goes on behind this interesting architecture.
Reggae Sound Clash
Sound clash may be the technical term for what Jonny2Bad and DJ More Fyah will be doing tonight at the Palace of Wonder (located at 1210 H Street, NE), but it’s hardly appropriate. Jonny2Bad and his brethren create sound collages that aren’t reminiscent of clashing in any way. Head over if you’re interested in a relaxing night. The party starts at 9 p.m. and ends at 2 in the morning. Check out Jonny’s website for more information
House of Sweden
If you’ve ever walked by the glorious, Ikea-esque, House of Sweden only a few blocks from campus, you’ve probably wondered what exactly goes on beyond those unique glass doors. Well, now you have your chance to find out firsthand, as the Kingdom of Sweden’s House of Sweden is opening its doors to show off the operational sustainable elements used in the building and conference center. Apparently, they have a lot to say about sustainability, so go learn how to be sustainable, while drinking complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres! The Kingdom opens June 25th from 4 p.m.—8 p.m.
Movies, movies, and more movies!
If you’re looking to see a movie in the crisp night air, I’ve already laid out a few options for you. And there seems to be something for everyone; whether you’d be interested in NoMa’s music oriented film showings, or HBO’s Screen on the Green, which kicks off July 14th with 1962’s Dr. No. Conveniently enough, D.C. event planner, Cristina Maria, has made a comprehensive list of outdoor screenings in the Metro area, which you can find here. If you’re looking to spend a Friday watching a movie in DC, the next Wednesday in Maryland, and the following Thursday in Virginia… well, the possibilities are endless!
“Poet A Tete”
Ebenzers coffee house, located at 201 F Street, NE (by Union Station), will be hosting a free poetry open mic Thursday, June 25th, at 7:30 p.m. This little shop proudly serves “coffee with a cause,” as they are owned and operated by National Community Church, which means that all their profits go towards community outreach programs. They’ve got free wi-fi, and they note on their website that “the coffee isn’t very expensive either.” Take this opportunity to check out a fun, new coffee shop, if only to find a new place to get away to. And make sure to check their list of upcoming events for some more cause-oriented, fun nights.
