Singer-songwriter Doug Levitt spent seven years traveling 70,000 miles by Greyhound. On his journey, the D.C. native began writing The Greyhound Diaries, stories of fellow travelers struggling to get by, which became an EP and a book. Levitt told DCist he was inspired by Works Progress Administration–era projects: "I thought that maybe I could set out on the road and write songs and stories largely about folks struggling to get by." He presents his stories at the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage. 6 p.m. Free.
