There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
Since mid-July, D.C. art-rockers Beauty Pill have been holed up in Artisphere’s Black Box Theatre recording a new album. I’ve filed a few dispatches. Today is the band’s final day there, and it’s worth stopping by the building’s third-floor observation window anytime until about 10 p.m., so that you can look in on the sessions (which are now in their less-kinetic post-production stage). Or better yet: Go to the Black Box from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., when the band will be taking questions and hanging out. Ask about their George Harrison figurine! They also have a toy they’re calling the “pocket rocket.” Ask about that too.
