This is the last weekend of the biggest small festival in DC (The world?): Intersections. Over the last ten days hundreds of performers danced and sang their way through Atlas Performing Arts center, and it is a shame if you missed out on some of though-not all is lost! This weekend is chock-a-block full of BYT approved shows.
Kick things off on Friday with
- SIX IMPOSSIBLE THINGS by Molly Orlando and Jeremy Koch: Mass. Ave. Redux a provocative multi-media concert collaboration among DC new music composers and photographers that captures through image and music the cultural tranverse of DC’s diverse diagonal. Tickets are $15 and $10 for students.
And then on Saturday, you may as well just move into the ATLAS:
- Tosin Arbisala, the meanest guitar player around and friends band together for an early and free performance at 5pm.
- Paige in Full, has their final festival performance at 6:30pm, theatrical mix-tape blending poetry, dance, media and live music to tell the tale of a multicultural girl’s journey through hip-hop to self-discovery and identity. Tickets are $20 or $15 for students.
- And then finally, Matthew Hemerlein who should need absolutely no introduction to BYT readers (still, if he does, check out this listening party with did with him for his new record) performs a late night show, which promises, according to the brochure to be sexy AND seductive. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door.
AND THEN! As an added eating/drinking bonus (since we know how much you love eating and drinking) Take your INTERSECTIONS ticket to one of eight popular neighborhood restuarants and receive 10% off on the day of your performance. Enjoy!
