New York City
Comedy Kumite III @ DC Improv Lounge
Comedy Kumite is a one-night stand-up comedy tournament -- eight comics enter, but only one comic leaves! Each "match" has two comics doing five minute sets, and the audience picks the winners. It's a showcase presented with the flair of pro wrestling, but probably less spandex. Who will be the next champion?
Minus The Bear @ The Howard Theatre
$25 / $25
Minus the Bear is Jake Snider (vocals, guitar), David Knudson (guitar), Cory Murchy (bass), Alex Rose (keyboards, saxophone, vocals, programming), and Erin Tate (drums & percussion). The Seattle-based band formed in 2001, and has since released five full length LPs and eight Eps, totaling an excess of 400K in sales and all the while staying true to its uncompromising artistic ideals. The group's tireless work ethic has helped build a robust live following with the band headlining countless sold out shows across the globe, as well as sharing the stage with such diverse and respected artists as Soundgarden, Jimmy Eat World, and Foo Fighters. In a recent episode of "Live From Daryl's House" featuring Minus the Bear, Daryl Hall jammed with members of the band further illustrating the depth and singularity of the band's songwriting.
DECLASSIFIED: Carnival of Sins featuring Storm Large & Hudson Shad with the National Symphony Orchestra @ Kennedy Center Concert Hall
A lead singer with Pink Martini, Storm Large is a "sensational" (The New York Times) entertainer in her own right. She performs cabaret songs plus Kurt Weill's wickedly delightful The Seven Deadly Sins in concert with all-male vocal quartet Hudson Shad. Led by "talented young American conductor" (The New York Times) James Gaffigan, the program also includes Richard Rodgers's fanciful Carousel Waltz. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ABOUT DECLASSIFIED: FRIDAYS AT 9 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The secret is out! Some of the NSO's Friday night programs are taking on a whole new vibe with a fresh mix of sound and vision plus exciting pre- and post-concert activities, all at a great price. For the 2015–2016 season, the NSO has "unlocked" some of its standard Friday programs and opened them up to fresh concepts in concert-going with DECLASSIFIED: Fridays at 9. Not your typical Concert Hall experience, these late evenings will include an eclectic mix of classic and modern sounds, special guest artists, dynamic multimedia, audience interaction, and pre- and/or post-performance activities. They'll begin at 9
. (an hour later than usual) and last 60–75 minutes (shorter than a typical program), all at a great price for making memorable nights out with a date or a group of friends! If you heard about the NSO's concert at
.'s Echostage in January 2015, you'll know exactly what to expect at these new concerts: - Come as you are: straight from work, in jeans, or whatever suits your fancy. Be ready to move! - Arrive early and/or stay after the concert for added fun to be announced--each night will be a different experience. - Grab drinks or snacks anytime and bring them back into the Concert Hall. - Most importantly, open your mind to a music experience where anything can happen! Performance Timing: Approximately 85 minutes, with no intermission
