Metro is hosting auditions for its MetroPerforms! program this evening, allowing the more artistically inclined among us to try and convince transit officials that they should be given a chance to perform at station entrances between June and September.

Auditions will take place at 7:30 p.m. at Metro headquarters (600 Fifth Street NW); fill out an application ahead of time by going here.
