Metro performing

No, not in the sense of, say, Metro being on time and stuff. No, I speak of the MetroPerforms! events happening at differing metro stations around town. All the currently scheduled performances are in the District and run through September.

Today kicks off the series at 4:30pm at Dupont Station entrance at Q street with some hand dancing which will continue through to 6:30pm. If you’ve never heard of it, well, that’s two of us. Here’s some video of what is apparently a DC-area unique form of swing dancing.

Auditions are about to begin if you or someone you know would like to be a performer in PG or Montgomery county.

The auditions in Prince George’s County will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, at the Mt. Rainier Artists Loft community room, 3311 Rhode Island Ave., Mt. Rainier, MD. Interested individuals should send an email to to schedule an audition time.

Montgomery County will hold auditions from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, June 29, at Silver Plaza on Ellsworth Drive in downtown Silver Spring. The auditions will be open to the public and performers will have three minutes on stage to impress a panel of judges.

More information at the MetroPerforms! press release. Performances at stations in Prince George’s and Montgomery counties will likely begin in July.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
