Fort Reno Concerts

Fort Reno Concerts
Get high in DC this summer – go to Fort Reno. The park is 429 feet above sea level, the highest point in the District. You can get high on music there, too. Free Fort Reno Summer Concerts are on Mondays and Thursdays at 7 PM to 9:30 PM and started last Monday. The lineup for Monday June 25th: The Torches, Musicband, and The NV’s. The outdoor concerts are free. Bring a blanket, balloons, picnics, glass bottles, soft drinks, alcohol, the family, drugs and friends.

Fort Reno was built in 1861 as part of Washington’s Civil War defenses. It guarded the Tenleytown Whole Foods or something like that — ask the kids from Wilson High School down the street; it was probably on the final exam. The Fort Reno Summer Concert Series has been a Tenleytown tradition for four decades, starting right after the Civil War, showcasing whatever they called loud, fast music back then (“Union Rock” or “Reconstruction-Core,” maybe).

Fort Reno Concert Series Mondays and Thursdays (weather permitting) until July 26, 2012 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM Fort Reno Park, Chesapeake Street and Nebraska Avenue, NW
