Your favorite assemblage is back, and we’ve got nothin’ but love for you, baby! We don’t call it “aggregation,” because aggregation is too aggro. In the land of FO-vs.-HD, all the pieces fit together like a giant group hug. D.C. deserves it! Catch up here. Then accept this week’s embrace. Then go make some art or something.
(Editor’s note: Usually there’s a cool graphic to accompany this column. This week, due to some staff shortages and our impending Fall Arts Guide—out next Thursday!—we were unable create such a graphic. All the more reason to keep your eyes peeled for next week’s edition.)
