Get To It
Y'all, this is going to be a weekend-heavy edition of Get To It because there is like, an orgy of stuff going on. (Get your mind out of the gutter, folks. There is no actual orgy.)
Thursday is the first day of the DC Shorts Film Festival. Our attention span, having been destroyed by too much Internet, is excited. (We recommend LOL titles like The Art of Stalking and Back to the Fuschia.) In addition, Baltimortals Thank You play DC9. (Go to Etete before the show. You will thank me!)
Just try and decide what to do on Saturday. I dare you! You could watch the opening performance of the Washington National Opera's 53rd season broadcast live and for free at Nationals Park, or you could go to the Kennedy Center's Open House Arts Festival, a swirling gyre of amazing performances that marks the hallowed center's 37th birthday. (A performance by Chuck Brown closes the festivites. Do not sleep.) All of this is possible provided you're not too exhausted from going to the opening of Richard Avedon: Portraits of Power at the Corcoran.
Sunday is Adams Morgan Day Festival! Imagine the madness of Adams Morgan on a Friday night. Now multiply that by families, food stands, and craft vendors! Can you stand it?!?! No, seriously, it's pretty fun.
