Mayor Bowser Launches New Office of Creative Affairs

EDITORIAL:

#WOOKRadioDC is still studying this latest effort by DC's mayor to reshape the city gov't's role in its creative sector. Our sense is it's the latest in a series of heavy-handed, knee jerk moves intended to pacify certain publics rather than commit to the hard work involved with energizing part of the economy or serve the greater good.

H/T: Robert Bettmann

#BreadAndCircuses #DMVCreativeEconomy

It will be “the central coordination body for the reconstituted D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities,” according to a memo from the mayor’s office.

Howard Co. in talks to bring beleaguered Woodstock festival to Md. | WTOP

#WOOKRadioDC considered live streaming the 50th anniversary #Woodstock from New York before problems began to rise among the organizers. Instead, we decided to produce our own tribute this seminal event in music history featuring DMV-based acts.

We'll keep a keen eye on this latest effort to relocate the event to #Columbia.

Howard County, Maryland, officials are working with Merriweather Post Pavilion to bring the Woodstock 50th anniversary festival to the location.

On Life Support, The Funk Parade Makes a Last-Ditch Effort To Keep Going

Last year #WOOKRadioDC set up in a tent next to the stage by an entrance/exit to the African-American Civil War Museum Metro station, where it conducted interviews and captured performances by several D.C.-area indie acts. The energy and good vibes produced on that day were incredible, especially given the soggy weather throughout the day.

It's uncertain how WOOK will participate this year beyond making a donation, but it urges the area's fans of D.C. music culture to get involved with Funk Parade 2018 to ensure its continuation.

#AmplifyDC

In four years, the Funk Parade has quickly become one of D.C.’s most popular festivals. Now it’s struggling to raise funds to keep going.
