Three performers are scheduled to take the stage at the Black Cat (1811 14th St. NW) Saturday, June 18 after 9 p.m. during an “anti-gentrification” storytelling night planned at the venue.
“Hear true stories about run-ins with urban pioneers, swagger jacking on U Street, long-gone haunts and places we miss, strategies for resisting cultural erasure, and how your condo still won’t protect you,” reads a Facebook event listing. “Leave your small plates at home and get ready to imagine a D.C. with equitable development that benefits everybody.”
Storytellers include X2 Bus blogger Tim Wright, poet and performer Quique Aviles and poet and activist Sage Morgan-Hubbard. Local band Coup Sauvage and the Snips will perform and serve as host during the event.
Tickets are $12.
