SHAOLIN JAZZ for DC Design Week’s Opening Party

We had lots of moving parts, but a great time was had by all at the opening party that we flipped for DC Design Week at Big Chief in DC.

From our live stenciling station on the roof-top featuring stencils thematic of DC, Go-Go, and SHAOLIN JAZZ, to an exhibition and talk about the classic event posters from Globe Posters highlighting DC’s legendary Go-Go (and events) scene from MICA’s Allison Fisher, to a talk about the storied origins of Go-Go music, the bands and people who paved the way, and its influence on the city and the music industry by notable music journalist and DC native Marcus K Dowling, a conversation about the DC music scene through pictures by noted photographer Joshua Cogan, all the while DJ RBI providing a well curated soundtrack that helped guide the evening’s activities from start to finish.

Thanks to AIGA DC and DC Design Week for tapping us to help them help celebrate this years programming, salute to Big Chief for hosting, and thank you to everyone who attended.
