As always, Arts Desk is your spot for what’s going on and what minor controversies are fueling/derailing what it is that is going on, but during the month of July, we’ve got a sister blog: Fringe & Purge, your source for way too much coverage of this year’s Capital Fringe Festival. Reviews of experimental dining-cum-theater? Check. Daily power rankings? Check. Highly informed recommendations? Hell yes. Daily Q&A posts in which you can ask our Fringe critics about their specific areas of expertise, but also how to remove that pesky stain from your new slacks? Sure.

The festival starts today, and I’m already salivating over the festival bar’s on-tap prosecco. Seriously: genius move. Stay Fringey!
