(Oct. 27-Nov. 5) Get Destroyed by Moby
Moby is known for having brought electronic music to the masses. His latest album Destroyed is all about the alienation and anonymity that’s par for the course when touring the world over and over. The musician took a whole mess of photos to go along with the album and you can see them beginning tomorrow at the Montserrat House in Northwest Washington. Moby will be on hand with an acoustic guitar in the afternoon to serenade while you take in the images.
