I have got to be the flakiest blogger online. I am going to make a concious effort to show this blog more love! My inbox is filled with so many dope, unique [insert hip adjective here] events, so without further ado here are some that are coming up.

This event has got to be one of the most innovative ideas I have seen in a long time. I got to give it up to Words Beats & Life, their use of hip hop as a way to reach out to today's youth is so smart, considering how some rap music (not hip hop) has negatively influenced the youth.
Bum Rush the Boards is on Saturday, April 18, 2009 from 11 a.m.-6 p.m

Chloe & Maud Productions have organized Washington DC's first tap dance festival, DC Tap Fest. What might a tap dance festival entail you might ask; lots of free classes, jam sessions, student showcases, and history lectures, oh yeah and Dean Hargrove will be there filming his documentary Tap Dreams. This event would be great for dancers of all ages.
For more info and to audition for the documentary just click the flier.

Of course, The Pink Line Project is bringing you a collage of indie art and design. This event is a mix of art, fashion, anime, music and origami! Hmmm...not sure how the origami is going to fit into all this, but it is cherry blossom time and the cherry blossoms were a gift from Japan. Which explains why this area has some of the worst allergy inducing Springs in the country, but I digress...
This event includes music and video by Yoko K + Aphrodizia, food by On The Fly (those cute, green, overpriced food carts that you see all over the city) and fashion by Moojooken.
