Adams Morgan PorchFest

I might well have missed in otherwise, but our next door neighbors Jorgen and Anne lent their porch for use by the first Adams Morgan Porchfest.  The first couple of performers were not inspiring, so after cutting up vegetables for gazpacho on this unseasonably warm day, I wandered down the street to see what else was happening.   Joe Pollock was playing some nice guitar

and I enjoyed the Greentop Ramblers who were performing on the porch of the Adams Inn, our neighborhood B&B;

there was a reasonable crowd gathered in front .

But the best was saved for last -- a unique Latin-Irish band called La Unica  performed on Jorgen's porch from 4:45 until after 6 PM

I would gladly hear them again, and so, I imagine would the more than a hundred others who gathered in the street to listen and bounce while they played.

Eventually a squad car came by, and the driver insisted that everybody step up or back to the sidewalk; we invited several people onto our porch.

Will we have to close the street for next year's fest?
