On Friday, September 7, the Arts Coalition for the Dupont Underground (ACDU) will throw a party at Eastern Market’s north hall… aboveground.

The duly noted “Aboveground” party, which starts at 8 pm, is intended to generate buzz (and dough) for ACDU, an artist, designer and community-led nonprofit working to transform the unused Dupont Circle trolley station into a culturally-enhanced space for the community.

Throughout the evening, there will be musical performances from Alex Minoff, Margot MacDonald and the Justin Jones Band, as well as the world premiere of Robin Bell’s music videos for these artists (shot in the Underground). Guests can also look forward to a silent auction (with goodies from the Corcoran Gallery of Art, The Pink Line Project, Our City Film Festival and KIND Snacks), signature cocktails and information on upcoming plans for the organization and its mission.

Tickets range from $20 to $150, and can be purchased online. For more information, visit ACDU’s event website.
