Welcome to your daily Hit List featuring the shows, openings, and ritual gatherings that will set your social dial to MAX FUN.
And if you don’t dig our picks, there are tons of other events to check out on our Agenda (side note: promoters/venues: posting events on the Agenda is free and open to all-so please use it, WE PROMISE this is much more effective than posting random comments on posts). Also, remember to check out Your Best July since it’s JULY. Now go do these things:
- Capital Fringe is going on. Go see one of their fine productions.
- The Fray is performing at Wolf Trap tonight. Go shout out the lyrics to “Over My Head” and relive the mid-2000s.
- Australian child rapper (yes, child rapper) Matty B will be playing The Fillmore. He’s 11 years old.
- Patrizio Buanne is bringing his Italian pop music across the Atlantic to the Howard Theatre.
- Dance music fans can visit U Street Music Hall to catch a set by Austrian electronic group Klangkarussell.
- Prefer movies to music? The Perks of Being a Wallflower is the film of the week at NoMa Summer Screen.
- If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to make a GIF, now’s your chance. MLK Jr. Memorial Library is holding a GIF-making master class.
- Drink for charity. Unlock Foundation is hosting a happy hour tonight, with proceeds going towards children’s education efforts in Namibia and Ghana. There will also be free cupcakes.
