Don’t forget to nab your tickets for the exciting event we’re hosting with the National Cathedral on September 10! First sign up here for our exclusive tour around the roof eaves of the building, offering stunning views of the city as well as unique close-up opportunities with gargoyles. After signing up for the tour, you need to buy a ticket for the concert that evening featuring singer-songwriter Sarah Borges & The Broken Singles. Tickets are $15 each (no added fees!) and include a free beer from Right Proper Brewing and Port City. It’s going to be a fab evening, so don’t miss out!
PLUS we’re curating a music-themed photo exhibit in the Cathedral’s concert hall! If you have appropriate images from around the D.C. metro area–concerts, audience members dancing, buskers, still-lifes of instruments–please tag them with #ExposedMusic and put them in our Flickr group or on Instagram by tomorrow! We’ll let you know if your photo has been selected, and we’ll print it and hang it in the National Cathedral. Then you can take it home after the exhibit!
