Ten Miles Square kicks off its latest “venture to promote local photographers” at Dahlak on Thursday. The Ethiopian eatery is no stranger to musicians, making the U Street space ideal for “I’m With The Band”—a showing of concert photography by DCers Kyle Gustafson (Washington Post, Toronto Star, Heat Magazine), Nestor Diaz (Rollingstone.com, RVA magazine, Pitchfork.com), and Martin Locraft (DC Magazine, DCist.com, the Onion). DJ Chris Nitti will spin at tomorrow night’s opening reception.

Opening Reception: Thursday, April 9th from 6 p.m.-8p.m. $5 (suggested donation).

Dahlak: 1771 U Street NW, (between Florida Avenue and 17th Street); (202) 332-2110; Sundays-Thursdays, noon-2 a.m.; Fridays-Saturdays, noon-3 a.m.
