things to be excited about

what i hope will be a weekly roundup of things happening which bring excitement.

Tonight: The Blow at the Black Cat. Seen her a couple of times, always entertaining. Plus, I’m curious to hear the opening bands which I don’t yet know much about: Saturday Looks Good to Me and Karl Blau.

Tomorrow: The Brunettes at Rock and Roll Hotel. Cute, crafty happy hanvnah making music from New Zealand. To be most likely followed by always fun dance night Sorted at the Cat.

Saturday: Arena Stage Costume Sale. I walked out last year with a huge bag filled with cheap vintage. Can’t wait for more! Go early, bring a big wad of cash and fight fear of crowds.

Sunday: Matinee of The Arabian Nights produced by Constellation Theatre Company at Source. $10 Theater Artist tickets available all weekend.

Tuesday: My two homes away from home come together. J on Demand and the Washington Jewish Lit Fest come to the Black Cat for a book reading and panel discussion of “THE HEEBIE-JEEBIES AT CBGB’S” w/ author Steven Lee Beeber and Mark Jenkins, co-author of “Dance of Days: Two Decades of Punk in the Nation’s Captial,” Steve Kiviat, founder of the early ’80s D.C. zine “Thrillseeker” and Lauren Strauss, a D.C.-area academic . $5 entrance fee – comes with first drink! PUNKS AND JEWS PUNKS AND JEWS PUNKS AND JEWS (More info from the Post)
