Issue 3 Release Party: A Very Special D(C)IY 
May 8, 2014 @ Union Arts


Union Arts and Homestage helped to host A Very Special D(C)IY and issue 3 release party on Saturday, May 8. We had amazing music featuring our friends Go Cozy and Redline Graffiti. Then the dance floor got hot with DJ AYESCOLD until the early hours of the morning. Many thanks to our live artist, issue 3 contributor Saman Bemel-Benrud. Thanks to everyone for coming out and supporting issue 3! If you don't have a copy yet, make sure you purchase one here.

Thanks also to bands Teen Mom and Brett for their awesome performances!

DC Launch Party
April 5, 2013

Some cops were called, some instruments were broken, and the bar’s capacity was soundly exceeded. But with nearly 400 in attendance, let’s call our DC launch party for issue 1 a success.

No small thanks to Mad Momos for the venue, Shark Week for the music, Make DC Smile for their art installation, and media partner the Pink Line Project for making it a spectacular evening.
