Meet Comet Ping Pong's booking maven, Sasha Lord
How a professional Girl Scout turned an out-of-the-way pizza joint in Northwest D.C. into a live music hub.
This diptych from the Monotonix show at Comet on Feb. 4, 2011, shows Lord (orange arrows) down on her hands and knees, holding a bass microphone in front of the amplifier, since the mic's stand kept getting knocked over. The blue arrows? That's Ian MacKaye helping her out.
