Artopia 2009

Where better to showcase emerging arts talent than Georgetown, the neighborhood that's made “on the cusp” a form of greatness? This year, SW's annual Artopia event has merged with the Georgetown Music Fest to deliver a full day of sounds, stunts, family fun, and weirdness. There'll be 25-cent dances, boxers on roller skates, and a great slate of local bands. Other highlights include power tool racing, the hands-on sculpture of Chris McMullen, On the Dutch rope jumpers, a very alternative marching band, photos by Joseph Songco, the music of H Is for Hellgate, artwork by Tomiko Jones, and emerging band Hallways. All acts are local, local, local. And you can take time out between acts to enjoy local food vendors and a beer garden, too. See you there. BRIAN MILLER
