Most people in the DC area know Anwan Glover as one of the founding members of The Backyard Band, one of the most popular Go-Go bands out there, but others immediately recognize him from his character Slim Charles on The Wire.
Early Sunday morning, just after performing at the Summer Spirit Festival with Lauryn Hill, Janelle Monae, Talib Kweli and Meshell Ndegeochello, Glover was stabbed inside D.C.’s popular Cafe Asia night club.
According to the Washington Post, Glover was jumped outside of the club by two people, and then stabbed. Glover was treated at a local hospital for the stabbing later released.
Glover posted on Instagram after being released:
“I am not a stranger to adversity and when shown hate, I’m going to spread love,” Glover wrote. “I am recovering and will be back soon. My flesh may be stabbed but my spirit is unbreakable.”
