Journopalooza II at the Washington National Press Club
January 5, 2010 4:57 PM ET
It’s happening again: Journopalooza
II, the rock ‘n’ roll journalists’ extravaganza that a year ago turned the
often quiet National Press Club into one of
the best parties in town. This coming Friday night two repeat-performing bands,
Nobody’s Business and Suspicious Package, will be back along with Dirty Bomb
and Charm Offensive. Journalists—including unemployed ones—are in every band.
The gig should run the gauntlet, from some original material to covers of
Springsteen and Lou Reed. A cash bar, a few of them in fact, will be on hand.
Proceeds will go to CPJ’s Journalist Protection Fund, Reporters Without
Borders, and the Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library. Tickets are available atjournopalooza.com.
