RhizomeDC is a unique and very special non-profit community arts and performance center located in the Takoma neighborhood of Washington DC.
In support of RhizomeDC’s fundraising effort, Dew Drop Inn DC is hosting a benefit performance on June 19, featuring Penguin and the Lost Civilizations experimental music project.
Penguin is a project consisting of Devin Ocampo (Warm Sun; The Effects; Beauty Pill), Renata Burger (Warm Sun) and Brendan Canty (Fugazi, Super!Silver!Haze!). The Lost Civilizations experimental music project (http://lost-civilizations.tumblr.com/) is a collaboration between Mike Sebastian (tenor sax, saxello and baritone sax) and T. A. Zook (basscello). Although essentially a duo, when schedules permit, it is joined by Jerry Busher (drums); Doug Kallmeyer (bass and electronics), Sam Lohman (drums) Larry Gomez (percussion), Patrick Whitehead (horns), Leah Gage (drums & electronics), Dominic Fragman (drums) and Emily Chimiak (violin). The project has been performing in the DMV region since 2008.
Dew Drop Inn DC is located at 2801 8th Street NE, Washington, D.C. 20017; the performance starts at 8 pm and is 21+.
