Tonight the Library of Congress  presents Intelligence of the Human Machine at the Atlas. Cellist Katinka Kleijn, a member of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and International Contemporary Ensemble connects to an EEG headset to play a live duet with her brain waves. The concert is free, and as with most Library of Congress events, the advance tickets are already sold out, but there will be rush ticket option, available at the door. More information on the program can be found here.

Friday night the Hill Center is a screening of the documentary Women in Hollywood. The film covers the early days when women ran twenty film companies and were writers and directors as well. The film includes interviews with modern heavyweights like Shonda Rhimes and Lena Dunham, as well as Jane Fonda and Sarah Jessica Parker.  The event is free and begins at 7:30 p.m. You can register here.
