Recent years have been rife with news of those losing their homes. And now Edgar Allan Poe, dead for 162 years, finds himself swept up in the housing crisis. The well publicized money troubles of Baltimore’s Poe House and Museum, where the author lived for several years, have inspired Washington-area Poe fans to stage a benefit concert.
The event will feature four bands: Lenorable (a Poe reference?), Nunchucks, Dance for the Dying, and Lions & Tigers & Whales. It’s set to take place at 9:30 pm on October 7 at the Velvet Lounge in DC. Tickets are eight dollars.
