Little Salon dips into Dupont Circle on Thursday, December 8 to deliver a massive dose of creativity, community, and hugs (metaphorical and literal).
When the doors open at 7pm, you'll be treated to shrub samples by Shrub District, photography by Eli Meir Kaplan, and the chance to peruse the first-ever Little Bazaar, a curated selection of three local makers who will help you step up your game for this year's gift giving: shrubs from Shrub District, letterpress cards from Typecase Industries, and books that amplify the voices of local marginalized youth by Shout Mouse Press.
Beginning at 8pm, our slate of performances includes acoustic tunes by J. Robbins and Gordon Withers, poetry by E. Ethelbert Miller, and theater by We Happy Few Productions.
We'll also be donating a portion of the proceeds from the evening to support research around spinal muscular atrophy, a debilitating neurological disease that impacts one in every 10,000 newborns.
And, as you leave, you'll be invited to grab a free copy of a 26º 81º, a 2011 hardback photography book that offers a visual narrative of the agricultural immigrant community of Immokalee, Florida — a book conceived and introduced by Little Salon producer Chris Maier and featuring the images of award-winning photographer Joshua Dudley Greer.
This all takes place at a beautiful row home in the heart of Dupont Circle and conveniently close to Metro and plenty of bus lines. Parking can be tricky, so if you plan to drive, give yourself a few extra minutes to spin around the block a time or two.
We really appreciate your contribution of $20 (plus a small service fee from Eventbrite) at the time you snag your ticket — this lets us provide the performers with honorariums and keep the lights at Little Salon burning bright.
Please note that we cannot offer refunds on tickets. If you find that you can't make it, feel free to post your tix on our Facebook page or to offer them to friends. If you do sell or gift your tix, please just shoot us the name(s) of the new owner so we can update our registration list. If waitlist tickets are released, this typically occurs at the host's discretion.
No need to print the tickets — we’ll check names at the door. Can’t wait to see everyone.
