Fort Reno Summer Concert Series
The Fort Reno summer concert series is a DC institution. Playing the outdoor stage in the Tenleytown park has been a rite of passage for DC bands for well over a decade. A completely volunteer-run operation, Fort Reno embodies the DIY ethos that’s made the DC music scene a legend across the nation. So, it’s time! Fort Reno’s back up and running. The days of Fugazi, Dismemberment Plan, and Ted Leo reigning over the stage may be over, but this summer’s got plenty to offer. Indie-pop outfit Tereu Tereu headline tonight’s bill, which kicks off right at 7PM. Here’s the complete 2010 schedule (and hey, Ian MacKaye’s still making an appearance with The Evens on August 2nd):
