Finally: Fort Reno
The long-awaited Fort Reno schedule has finally been posted on the organizers' Web site, fortreno.com. It's obviously still a work in progress -- 22 of the 57 slots are TBA -- but the fleshed-out calendar features a number of bands we can't wait to see, including Antelope, Mess Up the Mess, Head Roc, Woolly Mammoth and Mary Timony.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of Fort Reno is seeing which bands share a bill. Some of them make perfect sense -- French Toast and Antelope, two of the most active current members of the Dischord roster, play together on July 6. But then you have a bill like the July 24 show, with Head-Roc, "the Mayor" of D.C. hip-hop, performing with Eyeball Skeleton, a band that has two members who aren't even close to old enough to be able to vote for mayor. Hearing the ramshackle kidz bop from brothers Charlie and JJ Brown (with some help from Dad) followed by the head-nodding beats and conscious rhymes of Head-Roc is the kind of show that has fun written all over it.
Don't miss our Fort Reno-centric Podcast with the Thursday's Nightlife Agenda column. We'll be talking about six of our favorite shows and playing tracks by the artists.
