Are the Big K houses being razed/moved?! Anacostia wants to know!

The hyperlocal twitterers exploded this afternoon over concern outrage over what appears in photos to be some major demolition work (or possibly prep work for a move off-site) is taking place on the historic houses on the Big K lot. ANC 8A Elect Commissioner Greta Fuller has been sounding the alarm on Twitter. Fuller claims that DHCD the current owners of the property do not have permits to make such changes to the properties and the community has been left in the dark. 

Whatever is happening (and something is in fact happening) inquiring minds in Anacostia want to know. 

Including some screen grabs from the tweets.

Bring It On: The Musical at THEARC Theater this Friday and Saturday!

The award winning SEED Falcon Theatre presents Bring It On The Musical inspired by the hit film. Bitingly relevant and sprinkled with sass, Bring It On The Musical takes audiences on a high-flying journey that is filled with the complexities of friendship, jealousy, betrayal and forgiveness with music and lyrics by Tony Award-winning composer, Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights, Hamilton).

In this show, Campbell is cheer-royalty at Truman High School and her senior year should prove the most cheertastic – she's been named captain of the squad! But, an unexpected redistricting has forced her to spend her final year of high school at the neighboring hard-knock Jackson High School. Despite having the deck stacked against her, Campbell befriends the dance crew girls and, along with their headstrong and hardworking leader, Danielle, manages to form a powerhouse squad for the ultimate competition – the National Championships.

Admission: Adults $20 Students/Children (5-18) $15
