Love etc.: Indie-rock royalty Amanda MacKaye weds at Fort Reno Park
Wed: D.C. indie-rock den mother Amanda MacKaye to photography teacher Allen Beland, in a stealth ceremony Monday evening in Fort Reno Park, where she's the longtime organizer of a summer concert series. The couple of four years didn't want pals to buy gifts, so they invited them to a picnic for MacKaye's 40th birthday before a concert by the Evens (starring her brother Ian of Fugazi fame). Once everyone arrived -- surprise, it's a wedding! "It just seemed like the easiest way," the bride told our colleague Aaron Leitko.
