Thanks to a little birdie who put the schedule for Mayor-Elect Gray’s Inauguration in my email box this morning. The Mayor will be inaugurated at the Convention Center on Sunday, January 2nd, 2011 at 10am in Ballroom A/B. The doors open at 9am, and tickets aren’t required, so if you’d like to attend, you are welcome and free to do so. Stick around for the 1pm swearing in of ANC Commissioners and shadow representatives.
The gala event will be that evening, and Chuck Brown is playing, as are Raheem DeVaughan, Style Band and the Yvonne Johnson trio. Tickets are required, and 7,500 tickets will be available to the public starting Wednesday. Tickets can be picked up at the Convention Center from 10 to 2 on December 22nd, 28th, 29th and 30th in Room 145, until supplies last.
I’m pretty sure Raheem “DeVBaugh” is supposed to be Raheem DeVaughan.
