Hey everyone! This week’s selection of events on D.C. BEST WEEKEND BETS are, as always, hand picked from our awesome AGENDA HOMEPAGE and carefully calibrated for maximum fun, minimum stress and have LADY GAGA as a theme because Super Bowl and general life affirmations.HI

But, let’s try…


Some really cool things on the horizon:

  • Some BIG, MASSIVE, SUPER SHINY announcements coming up so: stay forever in the loop and follow us on Facebook & Twitter & Instagram & Pinterest. Use #BYThings too.
  • Can you even contain the excitement?

THIS_WEEK_ON_BYTAll sorts of great stuff:



  • The final MLK Library punk show before renovations begin is tonight with Bad Moves, Bacchae, and Light Beams. Free and all ages as always.
  • Trap Karaoke is a thing happening at the Howard Theatre and it sounds excellent.
  • Happy Chinese New Year! Go celebrate at The Source.
  • Isaiah Rashad is at U Hall.
  • The Phillips after 5 series continues with Love is Love is Love.
  • Some of us will be at Allison Crutchfield & the Fizz at Black Cat.
  • Groundhog Day screens at Suns. It’s Groundhog Day.
  • Greensky Bluegrass is at 9:30 Club.
  • Gilbert Gottfried begins a loud run at the DC Improv.
  • National Symphony Orchestra performs Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony and Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings at the Kennedy Center. It will be slightly louder than Gottfried at the Improv.



  • Do some daytime stuff:
  • The second No Muslim Ban protest outside The White House should be big. Somewhere between a few thousand and 1.5 million people are predicted to attend.
  • Luce artist talk continue with Eames Armstrong. Feel free to head there before the protest. You’ll already be near the Mall.
  • Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner screens at the Georgetown Library
  • There’s a Lunar New Year celebration at the Kennedy Center.
  • Then go home and regroup:


  • Leaving the house?
  • Go watch the Super Bowl at Jack Rose. Their deal is our favorite. But we know if you’re reading this you probably don’t care about the Big Game (FYI, you’ll see Big Game on advertisements for the Super Bowl and not Super Bowl because the NFL doesn’t allow the promotions or anything that makes money that’s tied to the Super Bowl to use the name. The NFL is totally fine with hiding information about CTE.).
  • Today’s protest is a candle light vigil at the Lincoln Memorial against the Muslim Ban.
  • If you’re going to the Lincoln Memorial, head to the National Gallery of Art after. It’s the first day of Della Robbia’s Sculpting with Color in Renaissance Florence.
  • We recommend Bentzen Ball alum Kate Berlant and John Early at the Howard Theatre.
  • It’s the final day to take advantage of Restaurant Week.
  • More Chinese New Year celebrations. Today’s is at the Freer and Sackler Galleries.
  • The first Sunday of the month is Community Day at National Museum of Women in the Arts. Free admission.
  • + ALL SORTS OF other stuff…

  • And just like that, the weekend is over. How do you feel about that?
