We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?

In tomorrow’s City Paper, you’ll find:

  • An guide to one of the D.C. area’s great musical scenes, the East Coast Blues Mafia, by David Dunlap Jr. Includes a timeline and a biographical guide to the likes of John Fahey, Harry Taussig, Max Ochs, and Robbie Basho
  • Dave Jamieson on the latest trend in security technology: Camera surveillance systems that can tell you to stay the hell off of your stoop. They can play “Bad Boys,” too.
  • In Cheap Seats: Dave McKenna on the last trace of Jack Abramoff’s skybox lobbying: a plaque underneath the Verizon Center stands.
  • In Show & Tell: Nell Boeschenstein on why a new go-go calendar left out some of the genre’s biggest names, a $7,000 theft from one of H Street NE’s new bars, and still more on the Source Theatre saga.
  • Tim Carman on the best jerk chicken in the city
  • And Mark and Tricia, Bob and Trey, Channel Serf, Service Industry, and more.
