Old Schoolin'


Editorial Review

Run-DMC's legacy lies in the group's groundbreaking beats and rhymes, but in recent years, the newest members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have been making more noise in the worlds of philanthropy and true-life TV. Joseph "Run" Simmons became a minister and has his own MTV reality show, "Run's House," while partner Darryl "DMC" McDaniels created a summer camp for foster children and starred in a VH1 documentary about searching for his birth family after learning that he was adopted. He's coming to Washington to perform at Old Schoolin', a concert and art show that benefits WHALER's Creation, a local arts program for foster and adopted youth. The exhibit, organized by the local Art Whino gallery, includes '80s-themed works by more than 100 artists, but it's the live music -- including DMC and DJ Lil'E -- who should bring down the house.
