Our Pick for the Week: Fort Reno Kicks Off

Ted Leo plays a previous Fort Reno show.

The annual outdoor rock series at DC’s Fort Reno Park kicks off this evening (Monday) with the groups Mass Movement of the Moth, Deleted Scenes, and the Boom Orangutangs. Fort Reno take place in the field at 3950 Chesapeake Street, NW; the closest Metro stop is Tenleytown/American Univeristy. Shows start around 7:15; they’re a real Washington music tradition, so even if you can’t make it tonight, check out the schedule and catch a show in the next couple of months. The series highlights the best in local indie music; plus, what's not to like about sitting outside in the grass on a blanket, catching a concert and doing some seriously great people watching?
