Do you have a plan to vote?

Let us tell you the information you need to register and cast a ballot in D.C.

If Serial has whet your appetite for multi-installment murder mysteries but your tastes run campy, try out local producer Ryan Burdick’s new D.C.-focused web series: Green Vespers, a kitschy, uber-low-budget GoPro creation on YouTube. In eight short episodes, Green Vespers interrogates five murder suspects, all members of a secret society with dark motives. There’s sign language, sassy retorts, and lots of queer hook-ups, plus a local A-list drag queen on the diverse cast list. Tear your hair out over Adnan Syed all you want, then watch a silly story that actually ties up its characters’ loose ends.  Stream the whole series after the jump.

SUSPECTS

Constanza Guadalupe Luz Financially supports her parents. Feigns religious observance with a rosary she bought out of a coin-operated quarter machine. Preferred weapon: golf club.

 

Ava Raines Goes out cruising after a blow-out fight with her girlfriend. Favors mice emoji in her texts. Doesn’t believe salmon burgers are real burgers.

 

Birdie La Cage Prances about in glitter and feathers. Enlists a muppet in her Sonny & Cher drag number at JR’s in Dupont. Best zinger: “Ironically, I very rarely use Twitter—but I always use my twatter.”

 

Kelvin Hardacre Carries a knife, and has a nasty temper. Might’ve been sleeping with the murder victim.

 

Minor Gaines A deaf man and a longtime member of a deadly secret society. Tries to buy love with shiny things. Preferred attack method: bludgeoning.
