After freshening up I headed to the Kate Clinton Sage The Capital event at Du Pont Circle. I wanted to be at a queer event. It was crowded and free but the Saging was a little retro, if well-intended. It started with throwing shoes at a giant Bush blow up doll, which the crowd enjoyed immensely. I felt like the white urban shaman lady went on a bit long and her whole thing seemed out of sync, but it was good to see Kate and Urvashi and to dance with friends, including Abe Rybeck from the The Theater Offensive.
Followed Abe to a part that turned out to be Internationalists, policy wonks, Non-profit social change folks, and artists from several continents. A friend called it B-list but for me it was perfect. That was one happy crowd. The dancing started early and by the time we left the crowd was grooving to P-Funk and shouting Obama, Obama, Obama. Yeah. One happy crowd.
