While it’s difficult to believe, not everyone is 21+. The not yet a girl/boy, not yet a woman/man people deserve to have fun. Here’s a useful guide to the weekend fun for all the 18-20 year-old people. Fun fact: you don’t have to be 18-20 to enjoy these things! Also, check out our agenda for LOTS OF OTHER THINGS TO DO!



Vacationer (w/ Joywave) @ Rock & Roll Hotel – ($12, 7:00 p.m., all ages) Dreamy beach music meets indie rock meets electronic influences with Vacationer. Sounds like a perfect summer concert at Rock & Roll Hotel.

Rushmore @ Adam’s Morgan Movie Nights – (Free, 1/2 hour after sunset, all ages) Free movies are aways a plus, especially when it’s a Wes Anderson movie. I mean, come on. Grab your hipster friends and get out there.

Katy Perry (w/ Capital Cities) @ Verizon Center – ($29.50, 7:00 p.m., all ages) You know her, you love her or used to love her, you don’t have to pay a lot of money to be in the same arena as her. She’ll probably be covered in candy and/or whipped cream at some point in the concert because that’s what Katy Perry does.



Skream (w/ Nadastrom) @ U Street Music Hall – ($25, 9:00 p.m., 18+) Young dubstep sensation Skream hits U Street Music Hall on Wednesday. Honestly, why not groove to some smooth dubstep sounds on a Wednesday night?

Nice Peter and the Jackpot Golden Boys @ Jammin’ Java – ($18, 8:00 p.m., all ages) Nice Peter, the man behind Epic Rap Battles of History, brings comedy to Jammin’ Java. If you like some good laughs, this show is for you.

Katy Perry (w/ Capital Cities) @ Verizon Center – ($29.50, 7:00 p.m., all ages) AGAIN! If you missed her Tuesday, catch her  Wednesday.

THURSDAY (1)Hunger Games: Catching Fire @ Movies on the Square – (Free, sundown) As if you need an excuse to see a FREE movie in Rockville Town Square, you can fulfill all your distopian needs with this free showing of the second Hunger Games movie.

Happy Days by Samuel Beckett – ($35, 7:30 pm) Samuel Beckett wrote Waiting for Godot. He wrote other plays too, including this one. If you’re into surreal avant-garde theatre, you should definitely check this out. There’s a woman buried in dirt, you won’t want to miss it.

Three Piano Cutting Contest: Orrin Evans, Lafayette Gilchrist, Allyn Johnson @ Union Arts (DC Jazz Fest Opening Night) – ($20, 8:00 p.m., all ages) Night one of the DC Jazz Fest at Union Artists! This is a really unique event that is part of a great tradition in the history of jazz featuring a piano contest between three of the best piano players in the country.


Free Outdoor MoviesSummer Fridays in D.C. mean heaps of free outdoor movies to choose from. Always a good thing. Go, take a friend, see some cute dogs, and pack a big picnic dinner.
