REASON #387 THE RIAA IS FRUSTRATING
The RIAA is throwing an inauguration bash for W:
There are boatloads of "unofficial" parties being thrown by lobbying groups all over town, including two late-night entertainment industry wingdings: One is planned by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and the other is by the Creative Coalition, the Hollywood-tilting nonprofit arts advocate.
The Black Cat will dissent:
Washington will also host dissenting voices during the inauguration festivities. On Jan. 20, the District's Black Cat nightclub will host a pair of events. Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore will be among those on the venue's main stage under the Noise Against Fascism banner, while a host of poets will rail against authority during the Black Cat's Inaugurate This! spoken word gathering in its separate backstage area. Tickets are $12 and $8, respectively.
