Chris Shott‘s cover story is both a food and an arts story, for which he journeyed into the dark and seedy world of pornographic bathroom decoration. Possibly NSFW. Ryan Little leads the arts section with a deep dive into the new Fugazi Live Archive, which he finds remarkably dynamic coming from a band known for its fury. Kriston Capps eulogizes the well-regarded D.C. figurative painter Manon Cleary. Little de-eulogizes Black Cat Bill. Benjamin R. Freed and I look at this year’s D.C. arts grants. And Tricia Olszewski reviews Shame—-a film that wastes its NC-17 rating—-and The Other F Word, which is about punk-rock dads.
