We know D.C. Get our free newsletter to stay in the know.
- Bob Mould, who’s taking your questions on music, life in D.C., and better living in general, addresses the difficulty of giving up coffin nails.
- Jessica Gould on the story of Barkitechture’s first (and last) gig at the Red & the Black, and the citywide alert system that kicks in when matters get out of hand.
- Joe Warminsky asks this question of Fabolous: “How does a total dullard get to be so successful?” He’s more charitable toward T-Pain, though; same goes for Spoon.
- In One Track Mind, Kim Gooden checks in with Bellman Barker about its song “Molly Maroon.” (You can check out the tune here.)
- Plus our music picks: Aaron Leitko on Tortoise, Justin Moyer on former Spin scribe Chuck Klosterman, and Warminsky on Richard Pinhas (who records for Silver Spring’s Cuneiform Records).
