Support DC's all-ages policy!

On Kojo Nnamdi's show RIGHT NOW.

"For decades, dance clubs have been incubators for Washington D.C.'s thriving musical cultures, from Go-Go to Punk to Hip-Hop. But after a local teen was tragically murdered at a local club, D.C. leaders are considering legislation to curb teen access to venues that serve alcohol. We look at the recent controversy over "all-ages" clubs from a cultural perspective.

Then go write a DC council member and tell them how all-ages shows helped you to be the upstanding citizen you are today.
