To Do

Many of us will be celebrating religious or candy-related holidays this weekend but what else is there to do? DCPS has been on Spring Break and the whole town just feels a little less crowded doesn’t it? Aside from maybe getting a table in under 3 hours at Toki Underground, what else can we do?

Tonight head over to the Atlas for the latest in their New Music series for a performance by the Brooklyn based janus trio.  To get an idea of what they do, here is a video of them performing at the Ken Cen last year. The show is at 8pm and tickets can be found here.

Friday head to CHAW for their CHAWbaret Not in Kansas Anymore. The show is an evening of pop song, standards and show tunes celebrating CHAW’s 40th (ruby, get it??) anniversary.  The performance is at 8pm with two shows at 5pm and 8pm on Saturday.  Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. To assure you get seats, email victor@chaw.org or call 547-6839. Light refreshments will be served.

Saturday you can finally fulfill that lifelong dream of becoming a clown and running away with the circus! Well, at least the becoming a clown part.  Sabrina Mandell of Happenstance Theatre is offering a Clown Intensive Workshop. While “clown” and “intensive” sound like they shouldn’t go together they apparently do. It ain’t easy walking in those big shoes. From 10-3 (with a break for lunch) you can learn what it takes to take the stage…or ring. Register by calling 202.547.5688 or by visiting http://www.shakespearetheatre.org/info/education/expand-your-knowledge/classes

If the weather cooperates head to the Congressional Cemetery for a tour. The Introductory tour start at 11ma and the Civil War tour is at 1. Both are free and begin at the chapel.
