Has the rain got you down? Do you just want to curl up on the couch in your sweats and watch Mad Men reruns? Well don’t, because only boring people get bored. Tonight is your chance to show off your own mod style as the Textile Museum hosts its second “PM @ the TM” with a tribute to textile designs and fashion from the 50’s and 60’s. It will be complete and utter Mod Madness:
“Step into the museum’s garden for cool drinks, noshes and jazz by the Pete Muldoon Quartet. Escape the heat with gallery tours led by WE ARE SCIENCE and music by DJ Jahsonic in the exhibition Art by the Yard: Women Design Mid-Century Britain and enter to win prizes from area businesses and restaurants. Silk screen your own t-shirt or bag to take home with the Washington Printmakers Gallery and Kristina Bilonick. D.C.’s most fashionable will be on hand to nominate the “best mid-century dressed” so show us your best fedoras, swing skirts and mod shifts!”
Worried about getting your skinny tie wet? Don’t be, they’ve rented a giant tent. While all advanced tickets are sold out (i.e. lots of fun people will be there), tickets will be for sale at the door for $10 and includes two drink tickets for members, one drink ticket for non-members. Don’t be a square – be there.
