Rodney Crowell Live at The Hamilton Aug. 25

August 20, 2018

Enjoy a one-evening-only performance by Rodney Crowell at The Hamilton on August 25, 2018.

 

Americana singer-songwriter, Rodney Crowell has deep roots that stretch back into the alternative country scene of the early seventies, yet his music defies easy classification. He says, “[Americana] is a hard category for people to get their heads around, or at least the terminology is. But all the people who represent it—Townes van Zandt, Guy Clark, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle and more recent stars like John Paul White and Jason Isbell—share a common thread, and that thread is poet. Whether they are actual poets or their music exemplifies a poetic sensibility, generally speaking, the Americana artist shuns commercial compromise in favor of a singular vision. Which resonates with me.”

Help Georgetown's Wingo's

July 10, 2018

On Tuesday, June 26th the ever popular carryout Wingo's in Georgetown had an accidental fire that started in the kitchen and spread throughout the two-story restaurant rendering the space gutted and unusable. The fire also damaged English Rose Garden florist next door.

While insurance will cover damages to the building and subsequent repairs, it does not cover the wages of the 24 Wingo's employees. 

The goal here to raise funds for rent, groceries, childcare, and other basic needs for the Wingo's staff. This does not go towards the building, repairs, or the owner, but to the cooks, cashiers, and delivery drivers who make Wingo's the special hole-in-the-wall restaurant that DC knows and loves.

 

Any donation helps. Wingo's will be opening a new location soon and will be providing work for everyone at the Georgetown location. Between now and then, a contribution will make a world of difference for the staff.
